For starters

Indiana has its final non-conference game of the regular season today against Jacksonville.

It's one more chance for the No. 5 Hoosiers to prepare for Big Ten play, which begins New Year's Eve at Iowa.

It's another opportunity for IU's freshmen to continue to grow.

"I think the freshmen are adapting to the schedule of college basketball very well," IU freshman guard Kevin "Yogi" Ferrell said. "Our coaches have been preparing us, the older guys have been great in helping us get our mind right."

Indiana freshman forward Hanner Mosquera-Perea, who missed the first nine games due to a suspension by the NCAA, had four points and 10 rebounds in 14 minutes in the Hoosiers' last game, a victory over Florida Atlantic.

Today's opponent, Jacksonville, enters with a 5-7 record. Jarvis Haywood and Keith McDougald are averaging 11.2 and 10 points, respectively.

"Jacksonville will challenge our transition defense and our ability to stop middle drives," IU coach Tom Crean said. "They love to drive the ball."
