Indiana shoots for its 20th victory today against Northwestern.
This is the only meeting in the regular season between the teams. The Wildcats have won six of the last seven in the series.
Verdell Jones III is expected to return for No. 18 IU (19-6, 7-6 Big Ten). The senior guard has missed the last two games because of a shoulder injury.
Northwestern's Reggie Hearn, a Snider graduate, is averaging 7.5 points and 3.5 rebounds.
The Wildcats' (15-9, 5-7) three-game losing streak ended Sunday at Purdue. IU has won two in a row.
