Following two solid Power Five wins, Northwestern (6-1) kicks off Big Ten play Saturday afternoon against Indiana (5-2).
The Hoosiers, ranked 23rd in the country by Ken Pomeroy, are coming off a blowout loss to Duke on the road, but have looked impressive otherwise. Indiana hung 96 points on No. 24 Marquette and 104 on poor Chicago State. Archie Miller’s squad is led by stud freshman Romeo Langford (17.7 ppg) and former All-Big Ten honoree Juwan Morgan (16.1 ppg).
The game will be a matchup of two top-35 defenses by KenPom — IU allows 64.6 points per game, a shade more than NU’s 61.0. The Wildcats only managed 46 points when they visited Bloomington last winter.
Here’s how you can tune into this afternoon’s matchup before you focus your attention on the Big Ten Championship.
