Eyeing IU


For starters

Indiana could be in line for its toughest task yet, facing Butler in less than an hour at Assembly Hall.

"Their veteran guys have experienced winning at the highest level and have done a great job of transferring their experiences to their younger players," IU coach Tom Crean said Saturday. "They play very well together. They execute their offense and they cut hard. Defensively, they will get into you and make you work for everything you get."

The 5-0 Hoosiers have won each game by at least 20 points. Cody Zeller has led the way, averaging 14.6 points and 7.6 rebounds.

Butler (3-2) is led by Andrew Smith, who is averaging 12.6 points and 6.4 rebounds.

"Andrew Smith presents a number of challenges and as a team we have to do a good job of not letting him get comfortable," Crean said.
