We're here and so are a lot of very loud and excited fans ready to see IU take on Michigan. We don't have lineups yet, but those should be coming any minute. The GameDay set is still on the floor, so we have a little time before tipoff. Feel free to join in tonight's conversation with predictions, comments, questions or anything else you can think of.

As I post that, IU's lineup is announced. IU's going with (guess who?) Ferrell, Hulls, Watford, Oladipo and Zeller.
I can't handle this. Too nervous.
Tom Crean and Tim Noble did their part to send this crowd into a frenzy. This place is rockin'. Like, IU-Kentucky rockin', almost.
Jon Horford starting for Michigan. Jordan Morgan presumably still limited in some fashion.

Other UM starters: Burke, Hardaway Jr., Robinson III, Stauskas.
mkillian247 on twitter..... I say a lot of stuff you wont care about.
This is the most excited I have been about a game in awhile
Ball movement early for IU is key, as the Hoosiers are very rhythm-oriented. The rotation looked good on that last possession, as Watford found Oladipo open at the top of the key for a three.
IU leads, 5-3.
Pretty sure there's a football recruit in the south endzone with a Ron Swanson big head. Sign him up.
In other news, Burke is shaking loose early.
safe to say Yogi has his confidence back
Yogi Ferrell hits back to back threes. IU up 6. Assembly essplode.
The pace of this game is otherwordly right now.
Beilein clearly wants Stauskas to drive on Hulls as much as possible. Zeller's helpside defense vital on two early Stauskas drives, as the Canadian comes away with nothing both times.

Watford hits a three. IU 4-of-4. Beilein just keeps telling his team to slow it down.
Zeller goes right through McGary for a layup. 18-7 Indiana, Beilein calls timeout. Indiana hasn't had an empty possession cross halfcourt yet.
Amazing... couldnt have asked for a better start
First media timeout and this is so one-sided it's crazy. IU has hit four 3-pointers, while Michigan is probably working too hard to attack Jordan Hulls. Hoosiers up 18-7 and they get the ball back after Tim Hardaway fell and Oladipo tied him up at midcourt.
18-7, 15:16 left.
They won't hit every single three tonight, but if they keep getting looks like this....they will make more than enough
Nik Stauskas is 0-for-4 to start. Clearly not what Michigan wants, especially with Hulls guarding him. That should be a mismatch in favor of Michigan.
Burke sits down, Albrecht in for him.
Cody Zeller is having his way right now on both sides of the court.
IU going to its bench, can Hoosiers keep momentum here?
Remy Abell dribbles himself into trouble and commits what's tantamount to a turnover as the tie-up goes to Michigan. Hoosiers have slowed down a little bit offensively, especially as they've gone to their bench. Not a strong start for Abell, who also too-stronged an open three a little while ago. Hardaway really starting to isolate in the halfcourt for the Wolverines.
24-11 Indiana, 11:59 left in the half.
Risky putting Morgan in there if he isnt 100%
Zeller already has 8 and 5. Nothing Michigan has tried to slow him down has worked. And unlike Wisconsin, it's coming in the flow of the offense.
