    I think Charleston drops out of the top 25. Home loss to Hofstra could push them out even if they were at 18. Teams between Charleston and IU last week: U Conn played once, losing at home to #13 Xavier Miami played twice, beating Florida State and losing at Pittsburgh Florida Atlantic did not lose St. Mary's did not lose Providence did not lose Clemson did not lose New Mexico lost to Nevada and beat Air Force For teams outside the top 25, Duke had more votes than IU but lost a game. San Diego State was close to IU in votes and beat Utah State and San Jose State. By default, the assumption is that IU moves ahead of both Duke and New Mexico. San Diego State's wins were pretty equivalent to IU's and likely doesn't see them go past IU. The question would seem to be if IU were able to pass U Conn or MIami. Given U Conn's current streak, I could see IU eeking ahead of the Huskies possibly. I have to think IU is 23 or 24. They should pass New Mexico and I think they'll pass Charleston and maybe U Conn. Floor would be 25, ceiling 22.

    Thank you for this b/c the next time my wife looks at me sideways and says “you’re not doing anything stupid are you?” when I’m intently watching a random and meaningless Tuesday night game on my phone with some team called Queens NC I now get to tell her some guy on the boards puts $900 in bets out on Saturdays and I can provide hard proof I’m nowhere near that league! :-)

    Personally, I think IU has a better chance to beat Purdue in Assembly Hall than Michigan State at Crisler.

    Can I be safe in assuming any analytics that predict MSU on the road is more difficult than Puredoo at home are flawed?

    Going to be really tough. Conference scheduling definitely not in IU's favor. There are six teams in the conference that have a winning record in conference play (one is Indiana)IU plays each of those two teams two times. The conference records of IU's last ten opponent's are a combined 64-38 in conference play. For comparison, IU's first ten conference opponents had an in conference record of 39-52. Pom predicting IU to go 5-5 in the remaining ten games. They rank the games from easiest to toughest: at Purdue (24% chance to win) at Maryland (45%) Purdue (46%) at Northwestern (49%) and at Michigan State (49%) at Michigan (58%) Rutgers (61%) Illinois (64%) Iowa (69%) Michigan (79%) FWIW, Pom predicts the final conference standings to be: Purdue 16-4 Rutgers 13-7 Illinois 12-8 Northwestern, Indiana, Michigan State, and Maryland 11-9 Iowa and Penn State 10-10 Michigan and Ohio State 9-11 Wisconsin 8-12 Nebraska 6-14 Minnesota 3-17

    Agreed. Which is why they’ll probably run a ton of pnr with JHS. If he’s on like in the Wisconsin game with his midrange game he’ll be huge. If he’s closer to the Minny game, our offense will stagnate. They rotate well on defense and we don’t pass the ball quick enough to generate open looks by passing the ball around the perimeter. My guess is that the 15 footer is there all day long. Outside of JHS we don’t have anyone that excels there. Probably a game we miss XJ more than most.

    It was a huge come from behind win for the wrestlers. https://iuhoosiers.com/news/2023/1/29/wrestling-no-17-indiana-comes-from-behind-to-beat-purdue-17-16-in-west-lafayette

    I hope we beat them, but they are good. They have a deep bench too. The only thing we have over them is experience. They seem to rely heavily on freshman guards too, I know we have one too but they have 2 starting guards that are freshman. Wouldn’t it be embarrassing enough for them to lose to a team ranked 25th?

    There were quite a few teams ranked 10+ who lost this week. We didn't beat anyone great but we've strung together some wins. I could see us sneaking in ~23.

    IUBB @ Maryland - Tuesday, 1/31/23 @ 9:00 on ESPN2

    1901’s Unofficial Depth/Injury Report: Judging by minutes and what now, Maryland likes to play at least 8 deep during games (Sometimes more in garbage time). The Terps are lead by 6’1 G Jahmir Young averaging 16.0 PPG and is likely Maryland’s best player, 6’9 F Julian Reese is finally in the lineup this season and averages around 10 PPG (fouls a lot recently), 6’8 G Hakim Hart returned back for MD and is having a good season, 6’8 F Donta Scott is also having a good season too for the Terps, transfer 6’5 Don Carey enters the starting lineup and first time playing in 5 years. Looks like they rotate between between 6’3 G Ian Martinez, 6’5 G Jahari Long, and 6’7 Patrick Emilien. But these Terps are different this year around and are a menace in XFINITY Center. However, they also average around 16.6 fouls per game, which has been a problem for them Injury report: Terps have been one of the more healthier teams this season, looks like rotation player Emilien maybe a little banged up, but will play anyways

    Another 'W' for our wrestlers and another full point in the Governor's Cup competition and we lead 5.5 to 2.5
  25. Can we keep our focus and get a 6th win in a row? Twerps (14-7) (5-5) but have only lost a single game at home. Brian Custer, Robbie Hummel and Myron Medcalf will be on the call for ESPN2. GO HOOSIERS! Live Stats

    Hopefully not in it yet. Keep the guys hungry. Also more embarrassing for Purdue when we beat them this week
