The UC Davis Aggies and Indiana Hoosiers meet Friday in the college basketball Hardwood Showcase at the Assembly Hall.

The UC Davis Aggies need a bounce back victory after losing four of their last five games. The UC Davis Aggies are averaging 53.7 points on 35 percent shooting and allowing 68.8 points on 43.8 percent shooting. TJ Shorts II is averaging 11 points and 3.8 assists while Siler Schneider is averaging 9.8 points and 2.8 rebounds. Joe Mooney is grabbing 1.8 rebounds and Stefan Gonzalez is grabbing 4.7 rebounds. The UC Davis Aggies are shooting 24.8 percent from beyond the arc and 71.4 percent from the free throw line. The UC Davis Aggies are allowing 29.8 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 30.7 rebounds per game. The UC Davis Aggies have split their last six road games.

The Indiana Hoosiers look to stay hot while building on their solid 4-1 start to the season. The Indiana Hoosiers are averaging 86 points on 55.4 percent shooting and allowing 60 points on 37.4 percent shooting. Romeo Langford is averaging 18.2 points and 2.8 assists while Juwan Morgan is averaging 14.8 points and 8.8 rebounds. Justin Smith is the third double-digit scorer and Rob Phinisee is grabbing 2.2 rebounds. The Indiana Hoosiers are shooting 34 percent from beyond the arc and 63.7 percent from the free throw line. The Indiana Hoosiers are allowing 22.1 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 38 rebounds per game. The Indiana Hoosiers have won six of their last seven home games.

The Aggies are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 road games, 5-21-1 ATS in their last 27 Friday games and 0-6 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The Hoosiers are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 Friday games, 13-3 ATS in their last 16 home games and 14-6 ATS in their last 20 games overall. The under is 16-6-1 in Hoosiers last 23 overall. The under is 8-0 in Aggies last 8 overall.

The UC Davis Aggies have shown no offensive consistency so far this season and have looked pretty bad when stepping up in comp. The Indiana Hoosiers are playing highly imrpessive ball out of the gate and have the potential to mop teams up at home when those outside shots are falling. UC Davis doesn't have the horses to hang with the Hoosiers on the road. It's a big number, but Indiana is capable of getting it done.

Pick:
Indiana Hoosiers -22
