IU proves to be a solid third team in the Big Ten (behind Wisconsin and tOSU) after beating the #2 ranked Badgers at Assembly Hall 71-66. The upset marked the biggest win for the Hoosiers since the Duke game in '02. Kelvin Sampson's squad has impressed this year, beating two ranked teams and falling in close matchups to Duke, Ohio St., and Butler. High school juniors everywhere wait for Coach Sampson to call (and call, and call...).
Elsewhere, West Virginia survived a close road game vs. Rutgers, Louisville seems to be having no trouble with Cincy, and UCONN and DePaul are just underway. Sunday's close loss to Marquette is South Florida's last matchup before the Saturday showdown with the Irish at the Sun Dome.
