Indiana-Duke game time, information
Time: 9:30 p.m. ET
Date: Wednesday, Nov. 29, 2017
Location: Assembly Hall; Bloomington, Ind.
Odds: Duke was listed as a 10-point favorite.
After a pair of losses in the first three games of the Archie Miller era, Indiana has won three games in a row entering Wednesday night. The Hoosiers seem to have hit a bit of a groove before possibly their toughest test of the entire season.
The favorites to win the 2018 national title, Duke enters Wednesday’s game on top of the polls and with a roster full of big names. Miller is aware of what the Hoosiers are facing Wednesday night.
“I think they’re as talented as a team in college basketball this season,” Miller said. “They’re as big and as skilled as a team as you’re going to see. They have potentially two first team All-Americans on their team.”
The pair of potential first team All-Americans Miller alluded to is senior guard Grayson Allen and freshman forward Marvin Bagley III. Bagley leads the Blue Devils with 22.3 points per game and also averages 11.4 rebounds per game. Allen, meanwhile, is putting up 16.5 points and 4.6 assists per game, and he went off for 37 points and hit 7 3-pointers against Michigan State on Nov. 14.
Indiana has three players who average double figures in scoring. Robert Johnson leads the team with 13.7 points per game, while Juwan Morgan averages 11.8 and De’Ron Davis has posted 11.3. The Hoosiers also saw the return of forward Colin Hartman, who played 6 minutes and hit a 3-pointer against Eastern Michigan on Friday.
Miller noted that things are starting to come together for his team.
“We’ve had carry-over for a while where we started to get a little bit better,” he said. “We played against a lot of zone defenses, so we’re starting to get a little more comfortable. In the early part of year we went against a couple type of zones and how we have to play against it. So that’s been a positive. Defensively we’re always trying to strive to take one step forward and not one back.”
