The No. 8 (USA TODAY) Indiana basketball team starts Big Ten Conference action at Rutgers.
The Hoosiers (7-0) beat North Carolina 77-65 on Wednesday behind Trayce Jackson-Davis, Xavier Johnson, Jalen Hood-Schifino and Trey Galloway. Jackson-Davis averages 19.2 points and 8.3 rebounds. Johnson adds 12.3 points and 4.7 assists.
Rutgers (5-2) is coming off a loss to Miami in the ACC/Big Ten Challenge. Clifford Omoruyi leads the Scarlet Knights (16.7 points, 9.9 rebounds, 1.9 blocked shots), backed by Cam Spencer (15.3 points, 43.2% 3-point shooting, 3.8 assists, 3.5 steals). They have been missing injured point guard Paul Mulcahy (shoulder). His status for the IU game is uncertain.
Rutgers has won 5 in a row in the series, including last season's 66-63 victory in Bloomington on Ron Harper Jr.'s 3-pointer in the closing seconds as both teams pursued NCAA Tournament berths. Among players still on their respective rosters, Omoruyi had 13 points and 12 rebounds, and Jackson-Davis, Johnson and Race Thompson combined for 44 points.
