#1. Jalen Hood-Schifino finally breaks out for the Hoosiers
In his lone game against a major conference team in his college career, Jalen Hood-Schifino registered just three points on 1-for-9 shooting, four assists, and two steals in 29 minutes of action. To say that isn’t enough from the freshman is an understatement.
I believe Xavier Johnson will be too tired defensively to provide much of an offensive spark, while at some point, North Carolina will have to double-team Trayce Jackson-Davis in the post which will create lanes and open shots for Hood-Schifino and others.
It’s finally that time for the five-star freshman to break out of his shell and show out for Mike Woodson and the Hoosiers. Hood-Schifino tallies at least 20 points in this game, to go along with at least five assists.
