PREGAME: It’s a battle between the two worst teams in the Big Ten today at Assembly Hall. The loser of this one takes sole possession of last place in the conference. Ohio State, losers of three in a row, defeated Indiana, 68-45, in Columbus last month. Although the Hoosiers’ offense has been scuffling, the team’s defense has been a bright spot. Indiana has held each of its last two opponents under 60 points, marking the first time an IU team has held consecutive conference foes under 60 in over three years.
