Indiana came close to a confidence-building victory last time out and cannot let another opportunity to turn things around get away Sunday afternoon when it hosts struggling Rutgers in a Big Ten battle. The Hoosiers, who opened eyes with victories over Kansas and North Carolina in November, have lost four of their last five games after Tuesday’s 75-72 setback at Maryland.

“We just got to learn from it, get better and move on,” Indiana coach Tom Crean told reporters after the Maryland loss, which ended when Robert Johnson’s 3-point try hit the rim and bounced away. The Hoosiers are shooting 50 percent from the field, almost 40 percent from 3-point range and are among the national leaders in rebound margin (plus-12.1), but are last in the Big Ten is turnover margin (minus-4.2). Indiana hopes to take advantage of Rutgers, which has lost six straight contests after falling 69-60 to Northwestern on Thursday at home. “We’re struggling with that 40-minute marker,” first-year Scarlet Knights coach Steve Pikiell told reporters after the defeat. “I thought we did a lot of good things and we keep getting better. I know our record doesn’t say it, but we’re plugging away and we’re going to get a couple of these.”
