For all you Big Ten fans out there, you can`t miss this game that is being played on Thursday at 9pm ET between the Michigan Wolverines and the Indiana Hoosiers. It will be aired live on ESPN2. Just in case you are not a Big Ten fan, that is not an issue here! As long as you enjoy watching great basketball, then this is the game for you… they are Ranked 13th and 12th in the Nation.
For those of you out there that have been out of the loop - the Indiana Hoosiers are probably one of the hottest teams in the nation and they are going to be one of the contenders to win the Big Ten. And not only that, but also to make an extremely impressive run in the NCAA Tournament as long as they keep playing the way they have been so far. This Indiana team has beaten some of the best teams in the nation already. They, first of all, knocked off number one in the nation, Kentucky, on December 10th by a score of 73-72. This past December 31st, they beat number two in the nation, Ohio State, by a score of 74-20.
The only team they have lost to is Michigan State, in Michigan, who were ranked 17th in the nation. They lost the game by a score of 80-65. It was a disappointing loss for the Hoosiers because they were on a roll and had won a nice twelve games in a row. This match against Michigan will be a big test for Indiana, but in their favor, they will be playing at home and that will for sure make a big difference coming down the stretch.
Both of these two teams love to shoot three pointers, so it will interesting which of the two come out firing strong first. I feel that the team that takes the early lead will be the team that leads the whole way. There is nothing tougher for a team to fall behind and then have to make a comeback against a team that shoots three pointers just as well as they do. I think if you really want to make a bet on this game, then bet the team total of Indiana going over or the over for the game.
