#2. Jalen Hood-Schifino brushed off early dust and looked like the only true competitor on the floor for the Hoosiers
Coming off of a three-game absence due to back soreness, Jalen Hood-Schifino was thrust into the starting lineup for Indiana and had to basically carry the load offensively as the point guard most of the game.
In his first game back, Hood-Schifino tallied 11 points on 2-for-11 shooting, a career-high five made free throws, six rebounds, four assists, three steals, and five turnovers in 30 minutes of action.
Hood-Schifino opened the game missing makeable tough shots for him, but that’s expected from a freshman coming off his first injury in college basketball. Especially when you’re coming back to take on a team like Kansas and matching up with a defender like Kevin McCullar Jr.
Though his overall performance doesn’t translate well from the box score, Hood-Schifino honestly looked like the only Hoosier that wanted to compete on the floor most of the game.
