The Hoosiers are now 5-2 after finishing up the Maui Invitational with losses in two of their final four games. They lost to UNLV and Wake Forest along with a win over St. John’s, but the loss to UNLV was particularly troubling. Indiana turned the ball over 21 times in that game, and if they’re going to be a national contender, that simply can’t happen. The good news is that Indiana got back on track on Monday by crushing Alcorn State 112-70.
The Duke Blue Devils are 6-1 and have won four in a row since losing to Kentucky. They thrashed Utah State 85-52 at home in their latest outing, and Grayson Allen and Luke Kennard scored 22 apiece for the Blue Devils. Despite Duke dominating Utah State, they had a troubling 15 turnovers.
Duke has won three of their five meetings with Indiana, who did manage a one-point win in the Sweet 16 in 2002. Their last meeting came in 2006, when the Blue Devils won 54-51 at home.
