The No. 8 Hoosiers are back in action this afternoon opposite Longwood. The Lancers (2-1) are in their first season of full Division I status.
What to watch for:
– Eric Gordon: After 33 points in his Indiana debut, will Gordon turn in an encore performance?
– First half defense: The Hoosiers have struggled defensively in the first half so far this season. They gave up 50 first half points to Chattanooga and Coach Sampson will be looking for more defensive intensity early on.
– Lance Stemler: The senior co-captain struggled against Chattanooga, going scoreless in 16 minutes of action. Can he regain the form he exhibited early last season?
As always, we welcome your comments here in the game thread.
