Hoosiers play tonight as Big Ten play draws near

Indiana has one final tune-up before opening Big Ten play when the No. 5 Hoosiers play Jacksonville tonight at 8 p.m. ET on BTN/BTN2Go. Read the full preview here and find the latest Big Ten men’s standings and more links inside this post.

Conference play kicks off in full on Monday with two men’s games on the last day of 2012. Then get ready for “The Journey 2013″ TV show, which debuts Sunday, Jan. 6. Our crew follows the Big Ten men’s basketball season right on through the conference tournament, and we’ve posted a handful of short promotional clips in this post to help you get ready.

Before tonight’s game on BTN, check out the “Big Ten Elite” episode that profiles the 1981 Hoosiers basketball team, the second of the three of Bob Knight’s national championship teams at Indiana. Just two years prior Indiana hadn’t even qualified for the NCAA Tournament but with the arrival of star point guard Isiah Thomas the Hoosiers were back among the Nation’s elite. You can also watch the full episode on BTN2Go.
