INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - The setting seems familiar to third-ranked Indiana.
The nation's No. 1 team is coming to town for a pivotal game that could dictate the top of next week's rankings. A year ago, the target was Kentucky. In November and early December, it was the Hoosiers. Now, it's Michigan's turn.
Indiana (18-2, 7-1 Big Ten) has beaten a top-ranked team only six times in school history - and just two of those victories have come at Assembly Hall.
The game features two national player of the year candidates in Indiana's Cody Zeller and Michigan's Trey Burke, and the winner will take sole possession of the conference lead midway through the season.
It's unclear whether the Wolverines (20-1, 7-1) will have forward Jordan Morgan, who missed Wednesday's game with a sprained right ankle.
