Big Ten Friday night: Watch Indiana, Wisconsin pregame interviews
WATCH - Indiana coach Tom Crean talks about the Hoosier's win over Kentucky and how Indiana is preparing for North Carolina.
Indiana has a winning record in the NCAA Tournament against No. 1 seeds (5-3). Wisconsin is two wins away in the East Regional from becoming the first program since UCLA (2006-2008) to make three straight Final Fours. Tonight, the No. 7 seeded Badgers face No. 6 seed Notre Dame (7:30 p.m. ET) before the No. 5 seeded Hoosiers take on No. 1 seed North Carolina (10 p.m. ET), and we talked to the coaches and a key player from each Big Ten squad.
For No. 5 seeded Indiana (27-7), the Hoosiers average more than 82 points a game, averaging of 58 shots. There’s not going to be a whole lot of time for play-calling or directing teammates. Everyone on both teams gets out and runs, and the ball doesn’t spend much time bouncing.
The big difference is 3-point shooting. The Hoosiers make an average of nine a game, almost double North Carolina’s five. Read more here.
Among teams in the Sweet 16, Wisconsin’s 53 ppg ranks second behind Syracuse (50.5) and the Badgers are holding teams to just 39 percent shooting from the floor. Oh, and the Badgers outrebounded two teams (Pittsburgh and Xavier) that were among the best on the boards in the regular season. Read more here.
