Our guest today, Joe Hillman, was Robert Montgomery Knight’s first recruit west of the Mississippi, Co-Founder of TrustWealth Strategies. Member of Indiana's last Championship team in 1987 and Endorsed by Coach Knight in his Senior Day Speech as the most valuable player in the Big Ten.

- 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. It is up to Hillman, a senior with five years’ experience of dealing with such predicaments, to keep the situation under control. Indeed, the eyes of a dozen teammates show that they are counting on him to do so.
