Quick Preview: Penn State at Indiana

No. 7 Indiana should have no trouble in tonight’s game against the Nittany Lions. But then again, who knows after the past couple of weeks.

Already playing them this season on their home court with a 74-51 win, we should be more than prepared to repeat our streak. Pomoroy, with a predicted 85-55 Hoosier landslide, thinks so too.

Penn State (8-10, 0-6) has struggled so far in their Big Ten matchups, the only team in the conference without a win. Their team doesn’t come without some strong players though. Junior Jermaine Marshall and sophomore D.J. Newbill are mentionable contributors to the team and are continuing to improve. But unfortunately, they’re just no match for the Hoosiers.

We do need to maintain consistency throughout the second half though, something we have failed to do too many times recently. And tonight we should be able to allow the bench mob some extra play time, especially for guys like Elston and Perea. All in all, hopefully we can use this game to focus on some improvements before our schedule heats up with Michigan State, Michigan, and Ohio State.

The Hoosiers tip off at 7:00pm tonight at Assembly Hall and are being covered by the Big Ten Network.
