We aren't at the game today, but we are chatting live. Join us as we watch IU take on Northwestern in Evanston.

And color me shocked, IU hasn't changed its starting lineup: Hulls, Ferrell, Oladipo, Watford and Zeller set to start for IU.

Im probably only going to get to watch the first half so hopefully its a good one.
OO, we gotta talk about your work schedule man.
Luckily for you, the first half has been the better half for IU during the past two games, so maybe the trend will continue.
Yea, I hate Sunday rotation. Only good thing about it is I get OT for it. Still not worth missing a game though.
Good Yogi Ferrell and Good Christian Watford on the first possession. Ferrell drives and kicks and Watford hits a three. We'll see if they continue to play to their strengths as the game moves along.
Not sure Indiana's not OK with those long Northwestern possessions producing points early. Need to make the Wildcats work for everything, no second chances.
Of course, the next possession was not so good.
Watford looking good early
Zeller trying to get going quickly, but he's not taking the best shots.
Northwestern has a player named Ike Turn? Jokes aplenty there.
Bill Carmody wants to be formal, but he's here to party.
IU attacking the basket early, to use an already overused cliche. It's opening everything up thus far, and Watford just drew a foul and hits both FTs. IU leads 9-4.
I love the press.
Good start for Indiana, because it's grounded in forcing Northwestern into bad shots and not allowing the Wildcats second chances. Hoosiers are looking good enough offensively, but the key is that they're choking off Northwestern's offense. Wildcats can score with anyone if not defended correctly, but Indiana is forcing bad possessions out of the Wildcats.
It works against a team too small and unathletic to break it.
Missed free throws really make me angry
Please don't explode.
Sometimes Ferrell's green light gets him into trouble. Like there. Growing pains of a freshman.
Man, that was a rough look from Remy Abell. Not sure what's happened with his offense lately, but Indiana needs it back badly.
I disagree with Gus Johnson's assertion that Northwestern is getting lots of good looks. Getting mostly meh looks, to me.
And Sheehey just airballed a 3-pointer. Man, Indiana's bench is just in a weird way right now.
