The Hoosiers just have to come out and play, Inside the Hall’s Zach Osterman wrote.

A national look at the Indiana rebuild from Yahoo’s Jason King. King does come out and say Indiana should no longer be going 0-4 to Iowa and Northwestern, which I cannot disagree with.

The women will be playing at Wisconsin tonight. The Hoosiers need to play better defense than it has been, Jeremy wrote.

2. BIG TEN BASKETBALL
