There will be big news in the Zeller house here Tuesday, which was big news to Cavaliers center Tyler Zeller. Tyler said he had no idea that his younger brother, Indiana University sophomore star Cody Zeller who attended Tuesday's game between the Cavs and Pacers, had scheduled a news conference to announce whether he'll turn pro or return to school. "I don't really keep up," Tyler said, smiling. The two do talk at least once a week, but Tyler said he had not offered his brother much advice this year. "I talked to him last year," Tyler said. "He went through the same thing last year." What did you tell him last year? "I always tell him it's something you can't get back," said Tyler, who played four seasons at North Carolina. "When it's time you've got to go, but at the same time, you can't get college back. It's kind of a balancing act. "I'm really glad I went back. It was a great experience." Tyler said he would not be shocked if his brother returned to school. "Not at all," Tyler Zeller said. "He's on pace to graduate in three years. Indiana's a great school, and he has a lot of support there. "It will be interesting to see what he does. It's his decision and he needs to make it based on what he wants to do, not on what other people want."
