Indiana has been held to 60 or fewer points in all four of its Big Ten losses this season. The Hoosiers have scored less than 50 points twice in conference play, including 43 Sunday against Iowa. Assistant coach Tim Buckley said the loss of leading scorer Maurice Creek is just one factor for the lack of scoring punch.
"When you take 17 points away (Creek averaged 16.4 points per game), it's not like we had that person sitting on the bench to come in and score those points, that has a little to do with it," Buckley said. "The defenses are better when you get in Big Ten play and you've had more film to study and see tendencies of individual players. When you get to conference play, you've got to have a new bag of tricks to use and counters to use for when people take away what your strengths are. We have to continue to run the basketball and try to get easy opportunities and try to get more opportunities on the offensive glass."
