Before each game this season, AllHoosiers.com will take a look into numbers that have an impact on the upcoming contest. Here are the digits that stand out in the matchup against Stony Brook.
Number- 1: This is the first road game for Stony Brook this season, as their previous three games have all been played at home. Stony Brook's 13 true road wins ranked first in the nation last season. Indiana holds the victory in the lone match-up between the two programs, winning 96-66 back on Nov. 11, 2011.
Number- 3: This is the number of senior captains head coach Steve Pikiell has named: Dave Coley, Anthony Jackson, and Eric McAlister. Stony Brook's Jameel Warney and Indiana's Noah Vonleh have both recorded three consecutive double-doubles to start the season. Warney is averaging 15 points to go with 11 rebounds, while Vonleh is posting 13.7 points and 11.7 rebounds per game. Vonleh is also the only Big Ten player to have recorded a double-double in each game of this young season.
Number- 7: Exactly seven years ago, Stony Brook recorded its first and only win against a Big Ten opponent, beating Penn State. That win is also their only victory over a "power six" conference. IU center Peter Jurkin is officially listed at seven feet tall.
Number- 10+: The Hoosiers have posted at least 10 blocks in two of their three games this season, which hasn't been done since the 2001-02 season. Head coach Tom Crean has stated multiple times that this team has no idea how long and athletic they are. Expect the number in the block column to hit double digits a few more times this year.
Number- 64.3: This was Indiana's shooting percentage in the second half against Samford as the team made 18 of their 28 total shots taken in the second stanza. While the Hoosiers will struggle at times to make shots outside of the paint, it is important to note that they can be incredibly effective when finding space inside.
