Christian Watford returns to the starting lineup for Indiana as it is set to begin today’s game with Northwestern.
Watford, Indiana’s leading scorer, missed three games after suffering a broken left hand. He made his return last Saturday, coming off the bench to lead IU with 14 points in a loss at Michigan.
Northwestern comes in off a 73-70 victory against Iowa Thursday.
IU got behind big in the first meeting between the teams, rallying late before falling 93-81 on Jan. 9 in Evanston, Ill. Northwestern got too many open looks at the basket in that game, and didn’t miss. IU will have to do a better job getting a hand in the face of the Wildcats shooters and making shots more difficult today.
