Tipping off

Indiana tips off the first of back-to-back home games at 7 tonight when the No. 1 Hoosiers (21-3, 9-2 Big Ten) take on Nebraska (12-12, 3-8).

The Cornhuskers upset the Hoosiers last season, beating IU 70-69 at Nebraska.

While the IU players will not forget last year's loss, they also know they face a different Nebraska team tonight.

The Cornhuskers changed coaches after last season, replacing Doc Sadler with Tim Miles, and Hoosiers guard Jordan Hulls said you can see some differences in how Nebraska plays under a new head coach.

"They like to get out in transition," Hulls told reporters Tuesday. "They shoot pretty well from the three-point line (30 percent). They like to move the ball around and get it inside to create havoc in there.

"They are going to play hard and tough, so we have to make sure we get the 50-50 balls, box out and get out and run."

Nebraska is coming off a 67-53 win over Penn State on Saturday. That victory ended a two-game losing streak.

Indiana is coming off an 81-68 win over Ohio State on Sunday. The Hoosiers have won six of their last seven games.

Indiana, which enters tonight a half-game behind Michigan State for first place in the Big Ten, will play host to Purdue at 2 p.m. Saturday.
