Just over 30 minutes until tip here from Assembly Hall

Today the latest AP poll came out today and the Hoosiers moved up from #15 to #14

Josh Eastern checking in here from Assembly Hall just more than an hour and a half before tipoff between Indiana and Austin Peay. Tip set for 7:00 EST

Austin Peay will have their hands full with this Hoosiers team Monday night at Assembly Hall. Chris Horton who stands at 6'9" will be matched up with Thomas Bryant down low, which is a matchup to watch. Beyond that, this Governors team isn’t all that big which means staying out of foul trouble is a must if they want to keep this close. Horton along with fellow senior Khalil Davis are two returning starters to go along with Josh Robinson as the third, and if the Governors want to have success, they will all need to be on their ‘A’ games.

This Indiana team can score and score a lot and that is evident by the fact that over the last four years, their offense is first in the Big Ten in points scored (76.5), field goal percentage (47.2), and three-point field goal percentage (39.8). But, if one thing will hold them back this season, it is their defense. Friday night was a good start however, as the Hoosiers matched last season’s lows of first half points allowed with 19 and total points allowed with 49.

Coach Crean isn’t married to a starting lineup and has mixed it up a few times from their exhibition games. It could be assumed that Bryant, Ferrell, Blackmon Jr., and Williams will be in there almost every night, but it is that fifth spot that has changed a bit. That last spot could be from one of their role players in Max Bielfeldt, Robert Johnson and Collin Hartman. These three guys have been around the block as Bielfeldt is a fifth year senior and Michigan transfer, Johnson started 33 games a year ago, and Hartman is a junior that played in 32 games a season ago. Crean has talked about having a two-deep lineup, but if they want that to happen, they need consistent play from everyone.

The Hoosiers return four starters from a season ago and are led by senior point guard Yogi Ferrell. He has started all 103 games he has played in and to begin the season on Friday night. Ferrell scored 17 points to go along with seven rebounds and six assists. He is one of the centerpieces for which this team is built around. Another key contributor is Troy Williams. He can get it done in so many different ways. Williams is very active around the rim and is a high flyer who can give this Hoosiers team a lot of energy. Thomas Bryant is also another key component to this team. Bryant gives the Hoosiers some much needed size inside and he will be all over the boards and in the starting lineup even as a freshman.

This is the second meeting between these two schools with the Hoosiers leading the series 1-0. They first met back in 1992 in the Hoosier Classic with Indiana coming away with a big 107-61 win.

Austin Peay is coached by Dave Loos who enters his 26th season as head coach for the Governors. He is 391-374 for the Governors and is currently the winningest head coach in Ohio Valley Conference history.

The Hoosiers are coached by Tom Crean who comes into his eighth year at the helm of the program. Since taking over in 2008, he has rebuilt Indiana basketball and has put them in contention to compete year in and year out. In the past four-plus years, coach Crean has a record of 94-45 and since 2011 they have averaged 23 wins.

Indiana had everything working the other night against Eastern Illinois as they out-rebounded the Panthers 51-17, while getting a great contribution from their bench as they outscored the Panthers as well from the bench 35-9.

Indiana of the Big Ten comes into their second game of the season following a big 88-49 win over the Eastern Illinois Panthers on Friday night at home as well. The Hoosiers were led by James Blackmon Jr. who poured in 17 points, but it was a total group effort as the Hoosiers had six players in double digits. As for Austin Peay of the Ohio Valley Conference, they come into Monday night’s matchup in Bloomington coming off of an 80-41 loss at the hands of the Vanderbilt Commodores on Friday night. They had a rough go of things as Khalil Davis was the only Governor to score in double figures with 10 points.
