Things are about to get very interesting for the Indiana University basketball team.
It’s not as if the first half of IU’s season has been a walk through Cupcake City.
Oh wait, that is exactly what it has been. The Hoosiers’ path through 19 games has been filled with more cream puffs than a bakery.
IU did not play a road game on the home court of a nonconference opponent, and its early Big Ten slate was stacked with visits to teams who will struggle to be in the conference’s top 10.
As a result, even though the Hoosiers sit at 17-2, just out of the Big Ten lead in this final week of January, we really don’t have a clue how good this team may be. Or not.
That is about to change.
