Eyeing IU

  • Indiana overpowers Indiana State
    BLOOMINGTON — After just one quarter, it was clear that Indiana Hoosiers coach Kevin Wilson has more confidence than ever in the Indiana running game. And by halftime, Hoosiers quarterback Nate Sudfeld had made so many handoffs it was strange
  • Indiana State...then an off week

For starters

It's No. 1 against No. 3.

It's Trey Burke, Tim Hardaway Jr. and Glenn Robinson III against Cody Zeller, Victor Oladipo and Kevin "Yogi" Ferrell.

It's Michigan at Indiana.

First place in the Big Ten is on the line when the teams meet at Assembly Hall. It could be a classic.

The Wolverines, ranked No. 1 in the nation, have one loss. That came at Ohio State on Jan. 13.

No. 3 Indiana has won four straight since falling to Wisconsin.

Both teams can score. Indiana and Michigan are the top two scoring offenses in the Big Ten.

Indiana has used its defense to spur the offense. IU opponents are averaging 15.8 turnovers per game. Michigan has been careful with the ball. The Wolverines are averaging just 9.4 turnovers.

It will be interesting to see the matchups. Oladipo could likely see time defending Hardaway while Ferrell will defend Burke.

"Whoever is going to guard (Burke), I'm sure it'll be multiple guys or something like that, but you've got to go out there and play defense," IU senior guard Jordan Hulls said. "It's a lot of team defense. That's our mindset. He's a good player so we are just going to have to do a good job on it."
