Where’s A.J.?

UPDATE: John Laskowski of the Big Ten Network just reported that Ratliff will not play tonight.

It’s a familiar site in Assembly Hall this evening. About an hour before tip-off, the teams have taken the floor for warm-ups.

Armon Bassett is back in uniform after serving his three game suspension. Eli Holman has been on the court for a while, working with his right hand, shooting hook shots and practicing his post moves. His injured left wrist was not wrapped or in a brace.

Every Hoosier is out there except for one, and it’s no surprise: A.J. Ratliff. Ratliff was expected to see his first action of the season tonight, but he’s the lone Hoosier not warming up with the rest of the team.

No word yet on whether or not he’ll play. I’ll keep you posted if I hear anything.
