The Southern Illinois-Edwardsville Cougars and the Indiana Hoosiers will both be gunning for a victory on Friday when they meet at Branch McCracken Court at Assembly Hall.

ABOUT SIU-EDWARDSVILLE (4-3): The Cougars, who opened the season with wins over Hawaii and Florida Atlantic, boast five players averaging at least 9.9 points – only one of which is a senior. Sophomore guard Tre Harris (13.9 points) has drained 20-of-38 from behind the arc and senior guard Burak Eslik connected on 8-of-25 while scoring 10.7 per contest. Freshman guard Christian Ellis (10.4 points) is shooting 50 percent from the field, but has turned the ball over 24 times, and sophomore guard Carlos Anderson (10.0) has 18 turnovers.

ABOUT INDIANA (5-1): While Anunoby’s availability is in question, leading scorer James Blackmon Jr. (19.2) returned to the lineup Wednesday after missing one game with a sore knee. The 6-4 Blackmon is also averaging 7.4 rebounds and teaming well in the backcourt with junior Robert Johnson (13.3 points, 58.8 percent shooting) and junior point guard Josh Newkirk, who is scoring 7.7 and dishing 3.5 assists per game. Sophomore center Thomas Bryant continues to produce good numbers, averaging 13.3 points and a team-high eight boards.

bovada-logo-top-book currently has the Hoosiers listed as 26-point favorites versus the Cougars, while the game’s total is sitting at 147 according to MyBookie-White logo -70x40.

Indiana looks to avoid a letdown after another big victory over a top-3 team when the 10th-ranked Hoosiers host SIU-Edwardsville on Friday night. Indiana knocked off then-No. 2 Kansas in its season opener and outlasted No. 3 North Carolina 76-67 on Wednesday, but in between the Hoosiers suffered an upset loss at Fort Wayne of the Summit League.

“We’ve been through two 15-round fights, with Kansas and North Carolina. We had one where we didn’t necessarily fight 15 rounds,” Indiana coach Tom Crean told reporters. “We’re gonna go through some of that with this team.” The Hoosiers may go into the contest, which starts a stretch of three against lower Division I teams at home, shorthanded after sophomore forward OG Anunoby suffered an ankle injury after recording 16 points in 29 minutes against the Tar Heels. “His spirits are good,” Crean told reporters after the game. “So we’ll see how it turns out.” SIU-Edwardsville of the Ohio Valley Conference has won two straight after Monday’s 76-64 victory at Grand Canyon and is shooting almost as good behind the 3-point arc (39.3 percent) as inside it (41.6).

In their last action, Indiana was a 76-67 winner at home against Tar Heels. They covered the +4-point spread as underdogs.

Southern Illinois-Edwardsville was a 76-64 winner in their most recent outing on the road against Antelopes.
