Indiana to get a school-specific Journey episode

  • In honor of putting four teams in the Sweet Sixteen, the Big Ten Network is putting together school-specific episodes of "The Journey," which will, according to a release, tell "the best stories of the past season."

    Indiana's episode airs at 3 p.m. after the Hoosiers' pre-Syracuse press conference in D.C. Here are all the details:

    BTN to Air Four Special School-Specific Episodes of ‘The Journey’ This Week

    CHICAGO – BTN will debut school-specific episodes of The Journey: Big Ten Men’s Basketball 2013 this
    week featuring the four Big Ten teams reaching the Sweet 16: Indiana, Michigan, Michigan State and
    Ohio State. Journey editors have compiled a 30-minute episode from the best stories of the past season.

    The episodes will air Wednesday and Thursday following the NCAA Sweet 16 pre-game press
    conferences. At approximately 3 PM ET on Wednesday, BTN will air The Journey: Best of Indiana, directly
    following the Syracuse and Indiana pre-game press conference at 2 PM ET. The Journey: Best of Ohio
    State will air at 3:30 PM ET, followed by the Arizona and Ohio State pre-game press conference at 4
    PM ET. At approximately 3 PM ET on Thursday, BTN will air The Journey: Best of Michigan State directly
    following the Michigan State and Duke pre-game press conference at 2 PM ET. The Journey: Best of
    Michigan will air at approximately 4:30 PM ET, following the pre-game press conference with Michigan
    and Kansas beginning at 3:30 PM ET.

    Now in its sixth season, The Journey travels to each Big Ten campus to capture best stories surrounding
    each program. In East Lansing, viewers learned about Michigan State’s freshman guard Gary Harris
    and junior center Adreian Payne, who has built a special friendship with a young cancer patient in
    East Lansing. The Journey also brought viewers to Ann Arbor, where they caught up with Michigan's
    sophomore guard Trey Burke and assistant coach Bacari Alexander, who takes a unique approach to
    motivating his team.

    While in Columbus, The Journey captured stories on men’s basketball head coach Thad Matta and his
    roots in Hoopeston, Ill., junior point guard Aaron Craft and junior forward Deshaun Thomas, who talks
    about how becoming a father has altered his life. In Bloomington, cameras caught up with Indiana
    junior guards Victor Oladipo and Maurice Creek, who describes how he has maintained focus despite
    sustaining several serious injuries throughout his collegiate career.

    BTN’s coverage of Big Ten teams in the NCAA Tournament continues at 9 PM ET Wednesday, with Big
    Ten Basketball and Beyond: Tournament Edition. The show also airs at 6:30 PM Thursday, and following
    Thursday’s games, and at 6:30 PM ET Friday and following Friday’s games. For complete listings of shows
