Eyeing IU

For starters

Indiana is back in the Sweet 16 for the first time since 2002, facing Kentucky.

It's a rematch of the classic 73-72 IU victory on Dec. 10 in Bloomington.

Today's meeting takes place in the Georgia Dome. A sea of Kentucky and IU fans have arrived, taking over the streets leading to the dome.

Indiana made nine three-pointers in the Dec. 10 game, including Christian Watford's game-winner at the buzzer. The Hoosiers will need to have some success in that area again today.

The matchup between Kentucky's Anthony Davis and Indiana's Cody Zeller will also be worth watching. The two forwards will square off from time-to-time. Davis is a shot-blocking machine (4.6 per game). Zeller is coming off a double-double against Virginia Commonwealth. He's the team's leader in scoring, rebounds and blocks.

Kentucky coach John Calipari said the first game might have come down to a last-second shot, but in reality Indiana dominated the contest.

I think it will take terrific defense and solid outside shooting for a repeat performance.
