Indiana men’s basketball is set to welcome Iowa to Bloomington.
It’s probably a must-win for the Hoosiers to avoid further spiral after an 0-3 stretch in league play. Losses to Purdue, Wisconsin and Illinois mean few opportunities for quality wins left on the schedule with a resume that isn’t March-worthy.
When is the game and how can I watch?
Game Time/Date: Tuesday Jan. 30 at 7 p.m. ET
Location: Assembly Hall. Bloomington, Indiana.
Radio: WHCC 105.1 / WIUX 99.1
Indiana was without starting center Kel’el Ware against Wisconsin and Illinois, opting for a smaller lineup in the latter game. The defensive gameplan of switching 1-5 worked, but the Hoosiers weren’t able to produce enough offense, including hitting 0 3-pointers, to escape Champaign with a win.
It’s unknown if Ware will be available against the Hawkeyes.
Iowa is still an efficient offensive unit but lacks the star power that made the past four years a must-watch squad. These Hawkeyes have a good amount of youth, with likely Big Ten Freshman of the Year Owen Freeman being a key cog. Indiana can’t afford to let them get comfortable from deep, as happened last year.
