Twenty-something Indiana native who became a Hoosier fan as a kid watching Jared Jeffries and Tom Coverdale lead IU to the NCAA Championship Game during the 2001-2002 season. Lawyer by day, basketball writer by night. Music connoisseur. Buffalo wing aficionado. Hopes to be Jay Bilas when he grows up.

Graduated in 2013 and afterwards from Indiana University School of Medicine in 2017. Current general surgery resident at University of Iowa, but will always be a Hoosier at heart. Lives off a constant stream of Diet Coke and believes Kanye is the greatest. Social media master when not in the operating room.

Sudhin Krishnan
2018 IU graduate from northwest Indiana (The Region) who is currently a dental student at Midwestern University College of Dental Medicine Illinois (MWU CDMI). I have a passion for dentistry, but, of course, I have a burning desire to support Indiana sports. Before undergrad at IU, I enjoyed being on the edge of my seat while watching Cody Zeller and Victor Oladipo stomp Big Ten opponents. My favorite IU athletes are probably Jordan Howard (BEAR DOWN) and Ian Thomas. Maybe one day, my sports knowledge can impact the way general managers make decisions.

Matt Lukens
Yo, what’s up I am Matt Lukens and I’m 1/2 of the Hoosier Sound podcast. I am originally from Stuart, Florida and I now attend IU. I am a senior Sport Marketing and Management major and I am looking to work in ticket sales or marketing when I graduate. In my free time when I am not slaving over homework I am most likely playing Rocket League, hanging with my wonderful girlfriend, or looking at 24/7 hoping for some good new about an IU football/basketball recruit.

Nithin Krishnan
Sudhin’s brother, I graduated in 2013 from IU, and got my Masters in Accounting the following year at Kelley. I obtained my CPA in 2015 and work as a tax accountant near Chicago during the day. On the side, I am a huge sports fan, supporting Chicago teams (minus the White Sox) and IU. I was part of Student Athletic Board while I was at IU, and I will never forget storming the court as soon as the WatShot swished through when we beat Kentucky in 2011.
Interested in joining the team?
IndianaHQ is always looking for new contributors – writers, content creators, social media specialists, etc. All ages welcome. If you are interested in covering the Hoosiers, then there is a role for you.

Are you looking to work with a team that intersects between start-ups and Indiana sports? Do you have a passion for technology, know Yogi’s career 3-point percentage, and wouldn’t mind traveling to cover the Hoosiers?
