Indiana Breakdown
Indiana is a young team led by two young stars in the making, Christian Watford and Maurice Creek. They are the Hoosiers two leading scorers and Watford is the leading rebounder. Jeremiah Rivers has come in and given the backcourt stability with his experience.

Indiana isn't afraid to use it's bench with 10 players playing in all eight games so far and no player playing more than 29.3 minutes per game.

The Hoosiers youth has been a struggle both on the offensive and defensive ends. While Indiana shoots a respectable 35.5 percent from three, they only shoot 42.7 percent over all and they are only out-scoring their opponents by and average of less than three points per game.

The difference in the game will be whether Indiana can slow down the Wildcats and how they'll respond to the physical nature that Kentucky will bring to the post. Kentucky will have to find a way to slow down Maurice Creek and don't give the young Hoosiers confidence on their home court.
