The Big Blue Daily Mail -- IU Eve Edition

Later today, we will have our preview of the Kentucky Wildcats at the Indiana Hoosiers game.  In honor of the great legacy and tradition of this ancient border rivalry, we will be providing the same full statistical analysis as for the Connecticut Huskies and North Carolina Tar Heels.

I think the Hoosiers, in particular, are really looking forward to a shot at the highly-ranked Wildcats.  Indiana had a great game in Madison Square Garden against the Pittsburgh Panthers the other night, a game which they won decisively on a neutral floor.  Despite getting killed on the offensive glass, the Hoosiers made their free throws and held the Panthers to less than 40% eFG, (31% FG), which is really getting it done defensively.

Christian Watford had a big game, as did former Kentucky recruit Verdell Jones.  Tom Crean is firmly in rebuilding mode with the Hoosier team, and one more good recruiting class will put them back on track as the legendary opponent UK is used to facing in Bloomington.

The news follows the jump.
