The Indiana Hoosiers welcome the North Florida Ospreys to Assembly Hall for a non conference bout.
Through ten games the results have been mixed for North Florida as they win when they shold and lose when they should. The Ospreys have played some bigger names and have struggled with the likes of Ohio State and Alabama last time out where neither end of the floor enjoyed much success in a 76-48 defeat. The Crimson Tide didn't set the world on fire with their 44.8% shooting but compared to the Ospreys 31.6% it was red hot. Bama held significant advantages throughout but the difference in marksmanship was enough to win. North Florida was paced by Devin Wilson and Charled McRoy with eight points apiece.

Indiana is really a tough team to nail down with some erratic performances such as a one point home win over Long Island. A one point defeat to Connecticut is no crime but a 69-52 shellacking at Syracuse on Tuesday was embarassing to put it mildly especially for a ranked team. A four point deficit heading to the locker room turned in to a second half rout with the Hoosiers shooting under 37% while the Orange wore out the basket at 51% and musterd six more shots which equated to nine more field goals. Noah Vonleh led the Hoosiers offense with 17 points and six boards with Kevin Ferrell adding 12 points. Ferrell was the only player to approach 50% shooting who took more then two shots.
Personally I don't think Indiana is a top 25 team unless they look impressive here. North Florida has struggled recently so if you trust them then bet them but I don't know if they can be trusted...
