Will update with trends when / if they’re released.
There are a lot of freshman on this Howard team that didn't have a chance to experience last years solid road schedule to prepare them for a game like this. The Assembly Hall gets loud, and when the Hoosiers are knocking down shots, it can rattle the other team a bit and lead to a blowout victory. You have to think the Indiana Hoosiers will come out with more energy after losing their opener outright despite being 13.5 point favorites. There's a serious problem if Indiana doesn't show up here and win rather easily. The Hoosiers have to get things back on track before things get a little crazy early in the season.
