Yes, we are here, and Assembly Hall is rapidly filling. It's gonna be a wild one. This ought to be fun.

Get the feeling this one comes down to which team can limit the other side's great strength. Indiana will need everything it's got to keep Minnesota from beating up the glass, but the Gophers are a careless team turnover-wise. Which side can mitigate that weakness?
Starters as usual: Hulls, Watford, Ferrell, Oladipo and Zeller. Almost ready to go.

mkillian247 on twitter..... I say a lot of stuff you wont care about.
Showing the line ups on TV.... I approve of this
Tubby looks old.
I feel ... like ... I want to run.
Indiana needs a big game on the backboard from Zeller and Watford. Can't allow themselves to get pushed around or be passive.

Love the new Tubby-stache.
Tubby is old.
How im jealous of you guys there right now.
Hoosiers taking their time getting out onto the court, milking the intro for all it's worth. Tipoff coming.
Watford with an impressive first possession...takes it inside vs. Williams, gets blocked, puts up another, which he again misses, but after Zeller tips a rebound to him, he puts it in.
Zeller pick-and-roll for an easy dunk with Oladipo, and Assembly Hall is esscited.
Indiana has three offensive rebounds already.
Andre Hollins now has two made 3-pointers. Hulls guarding him.
Ridiculous energy everywhere in this building.
Trevor Mbakwe easily blocks a Ferrell shot and Andre Hollins hits a three to tie it at six before Oladipo gets a bucket to give IU a 8-6 lead.
Zeller and Watford playing as aggressive as I can remember.
No slow starts here today. Hoosiers are locked in early, up 10-8 at the first media timeout. Indiana has four offensive rebounds, Minnesota has none.
15:26 left in the half.
Indiana with a rare fast start this season, but as expected, Minnesota is right there. Mbakwe's basket was tough to swallow as IU played 30+ seconds of defense then Cody didn't help and he gets a layup over Watford.
This is two games in a row during which IU has started off strong, which wasn't the case in the majority of the team's first 13 games. IU leads 10-8 at the first media timeout.
IU's already taken 10 shots through the first four minutes and has scored six second-chance points. Also, all 10 of IU's points have been in the paint, while just two of Minnesota's have been.
IU shooting 5-for-10 from the floor, while Minnesota's shooting 3-for-5.
Abell, Sheehey the first to come off the bench, six and a half minutes into the game.
Great D there by Will and Cody
Interesting that IU didn't commit a turnover for first seven minutes or so, and then the first two guys off the bench (Abell, Sheehey) commit them on two of the next three possessions.
Beautiful take there by Yogi
