Pre-game updates

As usual, expect a shorthanded Hoosiers squad this afternoon for their first ever matchup against Coppin State.

The team is currently warming up without Eli Homan or A.J. Ratliff. Holman will miss his second straight game due to torn ligaments in his left wrist, while Ratliff, who was just ruled academically eligible this week, injured his right ankle this week in practice.

Armon Bassett is also serving the final game of a three-game suspension and will not play.

Also, on the recruiting trail, Stephan Van Treese is seated right behind the IU bench. The four star recruit via Rivals.com is considering Indiana among a number of schools. He added 13 points in Lawrence North’s 68-84 win over Howe last night.
