The Indiana Hoosiers have been playing well down the stretch this season, and will need to continue to do so in order to set themselves up favorably come March. Indiana is not yet a lock for the tournament, but it would take somewhat of a meltdown for them to miss the NCAA tournament altogether for the third straight year.
Most projections have the Hoosiers in the 8-10 seed range. However, a win on the road against another tournament bound team in Illinois would certainly help to improve their potential seed.
Winning in Champaign is no easy task, however.
