Happy New Year, everyone.
Look, forget the result: the important thing is that IU won on Wednesday in Piscataway and is 1-0 in conference. Now they have a chance to go 2-0, which would be pretty nice even against mediocre opponents.
But Nebraska has often not been a kind host to the Hoosiers, who lost there in 2012 and 2014, and the Huskers even gave IU a scare last season during a five-point Hoosier victory on New Year's Eve. So losing in Lincoln for a third time in five season would not be a good look for Tom Crean.
Anyway, IU's favored in this one by 5.5, and Kenpom likes the Hoosiers by 6 with a 71% chance to win. The game tips off at 4 at BTN or you can listen to Fisch below:
