Haanif Cheatham is averaging 13 points and 1.5 assists while Dachon Burke Jr. is averaging 12.2 points and 3.4 rebounds.

The Indiana Hoosiers look for a win after splitting their last eight games. The Indiana Hoosiers are averaging 70.9 points on 44.2 percent shooting and allowing 66.8 points on 42.2 percent shooting. Trayce Jackson-Davis is averaging 13.6 points and 8.1 rebounds while Devonte Green is averaging 10.8 points and 2.6 rebounds.

Will update with trends once they're released.
The Nebraska Cornhuskers enter this tournament in absolutely horrible form, as they're losing their last five games by an average of 18.8 points while shooting just 38.9 percent from the field and 29.6 percent from deep. With that said, the Indiana Hoosiers are shooting just 38.8 percent from the field in their last five games and are 4-8 against the spread this season in non-home games. The Nebraska Cornhuskers can't win a game if their life depended on it, but they're 9-6 against the spread in non-home games and 7-5 against the spread as double-digit underdogs. I don't want to back Nebraska as much as the next guy, but I'm not laying massive chalk with an underachieving Indiana Hoosiers squad.
