Up until the 63-74 loss to Michigan earlier this week, the Hoosiers had won 7 in a row. They’ve actually gone 8-of-10, with their only two losses to Duke at Cameron Indoor Stadium, and to the Wolverines.

Duke’s one of the top teams in the nation while the Wolverines are ranked in the Top 4. Indiana brings a great resume into their battle with Maryland on Friday night. They should beat the Terrapins.
