Indiana basketball now turns focus to Northwestern after failing to protect their 21-point lead at Iowa on Thursday night.

The Hoosiers have lost three of their last five matchups against Northwestern, including a split in the two most recent games at Assembly Hall. Prior to the 2020-21 season, Indiana had beaten Northwestern in six straight home games.

Last season, the Hoosiers led the Wildcats in Evanston at halftime, 30-26, yet came out in the second half and were outscored 33-21, and fell to the 11-10 Wildcats, 59-51. After that embarrassing effort, let’s hope the Hoosiers come out with some pride at home on Sunday afternoon.
