He is second on the team in scoring and ranks first in assists and steals, but for a true measure of Joe Hillman's importance to Indiana's basketball team, we take you to a hallway deep within the hallowed walls of Assembly Hall, the Hoosiers' home arena. It is halftime of a Big Ten game against Minnesota last month and Indiana is trailing by six. Coach Bob Knight, not a happy Hoosier, locks his team out of the locker room.

Another storm is raging around Bob Knight, but this time there is real fear among his most loyal Indiana basketball supporters that he could be swept away for good. "This is as serious as it's ever been," said Joe Hillman, a member of Knight's 1987 NCAA championship team. "This is the first time there's serious doubt he may be gone."

Joe Hillman, a Hoover High guard, averaged 41.3 points a game during his senior basketball season in 1984 to finish with 2,213 points, eighth best on the Southern Section career list. Hillman was the first player west of the Mississippi River to be recruited by Indiana Coach Bob Knight. He played a key role on the Hoosiers' 1987 national championship team and was voted Big Ten Conference player of the year in 1988.

A lad from Glendale scored 40 points in a high school basketball game last week, which normally would raise an eyebrow or two. But the lad's name was Hillman, and he played for Hoover. And a Hillman from Hoover scoring 40 points in a game is about as unusual as Manute Bol telling a clothing salesman, "These don't fit." Joe Hillman averaged more than 40 points a game during his senior season at Hoover 5 years ago. He led the state in scoring that year and his 41.

Joe Hillman has attempted only 53 shots this season while playing guard for the University of Indiana basketball team. In high school, when he averaged 41 points a game as a senior at Hoover High, he took that many in a week. He's not complaining though. Hillman chose Indiana over other universities, believing the road to the Final Four ran through Bloomington. He was right. This weekend, Hillman and the Hoosiers will play in New Orleans.

This is Joe Hillman's season on the brink. The Modesto A's, the Oakland Athletics' Class-A affiliate in the California League, will drive to Bakersfield today for a weekend series against a Dodger farm team. Given a choice, Hillman, a Modesto outfielder-first baseman, would not board the bus. If things go as planned, Hillman will extend his three-week break from baseball and continue to work out with the Utah Jazz's summer league basketball team at Loyola Marymount.

It may not be a trend, but Indiana Coach Bob Knight has established a California connection with his basketball program. Knight once viewed California prospects as surfer-types, who were presumably too laid back for his rigid approach to the game. But Knight has mellowed in the sense that Californians are now welcomed in Hoosier country, and if they happen to be junior college transfers, that's also acceptable.

Nick Anderson's desperation 35-footer at the buzzer gave eighth-ranked Illinois a 70-67 victory over third-ranked Indiana Sunday, preventing the Hoosiers from clinching the Big Ten title. Illinois (25-4 overall, 12-4 in the Big Ten), which can tie Indiana (24-6, 14-2) by winning its last two games if the Hoosiers drop their final two, overcame a 13-point deficit in the final 12 minutes to snap Indiana's 15-game home winning streak.
