Jackson State Tigers

The Tigers have yet to win a game this season, but they have been competitive in every game they have played. They have lost their three games by nine, six, and three points.

All three games were on the road against Abilene Christian, Tulsa, and Arkansas-Little Rock. Jackson State played at Michigan on Wednesday night, so it will have a Big Ten game preceding this one on Friday.

It will be interesting to see if Jackson State learned certain things from the Michigan game, which could help the Tigers play better at Indiana.

Michigan and Indiana met in the Big Ten Tournament last March. Indiana came back from a 17-point second-half deficit to beat Michigan, a win Indiana needed to make the 2022 NCAA Tournament.

Jackson State players will probably see some film of that Michigan-Indiana game in preparation for their Friday afternoon game on the Hoosiers’ home floor.

Indiana Hoosiers

Indiana is 5-0, scoring an 81-79 victory at Xavier on Nov16, and an 87-68 victory over Little Rock on Nov 23. Trayce Jackson-Davis has been terrific as Indiana’s star big man.

TJD has averaged 20.8 points and 8.8 rebounds in his first four games, delivering the production that coach Mike Woodson and Indiana fans expected.

It will be tough for opponents to handle Indiana with Jackson-Davis in the low post. He is a polished player with a wide assortment of skills. He will be the anchor that carries Indiana through the rigors of the college basketball season.

One of the key needs for Indiana will be to get production from the role players in support of Jackson-Davis.

It’s obvious that if the perimeter shooters are unreliable, defenses will sag into the paint and double-team Jackson-Davis to take him away.
