NCAA Basketball: Indiana at Miami (OH) Trevor Ruszkowski-USA TODAY Sports

Indiana men’s basketball (6-0, 0-0 Big Ten) is set to take on North Carolina (5-2, 0-0 ACC) in the ACC-Big Ten Challenge.

What previously looked to be the most significant non-conference matchup at Assembly Hall in years has lost some of its luster and gone from a game Indiana would like to win to one it seemingly needs to.

Here’s everything you need to know about the game:

Game Notes

Indiana enters this game undefeated, with early season home wins over the likes of Little Rock, Bethune-Cookman and Morehead State. The Hoosiers’ biggest test so far has been a road victory over Xavier in the Gavitt Games.

The Hoosiers are averaging 88.8 points per game and allowing just 59.3 from their opponents. Indiana has three players, Trayce Jackson-Davis, Xavier Johnson and Malik Reneau averaging over 10 points per game. Indiana is averaging 38.3% percent on threes as a team, led by Johnson who has made eight of his 12 attempts on the season.

Noteworthy for Indiana is that star big man Jackson-Davis will play despite not being at “100%” with a minor injury.

UNC head coach Hubert Davis similarly said that, as of today, he expects Armando Bacot will play against Indiana despite a minor ankle injury.

UNC has had a much more difficult time this season, playing with fire during close matchups against Gardner-Webb and Portland before finally losing to Iowa State at the Phil Knight Invitational. The Tar Heels left Portland on a sour note, a 4 OT loss to Alabama.

In the wake of its two losses, UNC plummeted from No. 1 all the way to No. 18 in the AP Poll.
