Coach Berbary talks about the team’s 0-1-1 start and their upcoming matches against Butler and Northern Colorado.
For the first time since the 2010-11 season, Indiana will open the Big Ten season at Assembly Hall.
The Big Ten released its men’s basketball conference schedule on Thursday and Indiana is due for a prolonged stay at home to begin league play.
IU has not had a three-game conference homestand to start league play since the 1933-34 season. That changes this season.
The Hoosiers begin their conference title defense on Dec. 28 against Nebraska. After a brief visit to Indianapolis to play Louisville on Dec. 31, IU returns to Assembly Hall on Jan. 3 against Wisconsin. Mark your calendars for that one — a matchup between two of the league’s title favorites for 2017.
IU’s homestand closes on Jan. 7 against Illinois. The Hoosiers first Big Ten road trip is to Maryland on Jan. 10.
With the frontloaded home schedule, IU will close the season with four of its final five games of the regular season on the road. The Hoosiers will be the first team since Northwestern in 2009 to close the league schedule with that kind of stretch.
It begins with a trip to Minnesota on Feb. 15, followed by a visit to Iowa on Feb. 21.
IU will host Senior Day at Assembly Hall against Northwestern on either Feb. 25 or 26. The Hoosiers will wrap the regular season with games at Purdue (Feb. 28) and Ohio State (March 4).
IU and Purdue played only once last season, but will be back on a two-play rotation in 2017. The Boilermakers open the series with a visit to Assembly Hall on Feb. 9.
Indiana makes a return trip to Wisconsin on Feb. 5.
The Big Ten will stage its annual conference tournament in Washington D.C. for the first time this season
Dates, times and a full television schedule will be announced at a later date, as will IU’s full slate of non-conference opponents.

We sat down with Teri Moren for an interview about Indiana’s offseason. There will be a feature in Monday’s paper about some of the Hoosiers’ new pieces, including freshmen Ria Gulley, Bre Wickware and Darby Foresman.
But, in the meantime, we have also learned more details about IU’s non-conference schedule.
IU will round out its non-conference slate with trips to North Texas and Chattanooga, match ups with Florida and Stony Brook in the Florida Sunshine Classic and a visit from Oakland.
In April, it was revealed that IU would play Auburn, Vanderbilt, Western Kentucky, Southeastern Missouri and Presbyterian. The Hoosiers will also play N.C. State in the Big-Ten ACC Challenge.
Chattanooga, Auburn and Florida made the NCAA tournament in 2015-16. Western Kentucky played in the WNIT. That provides the Hoosiers with formidable competition before entering Big Ten play, a formula Moren believes helped IU’s resume when they were on the NCAA bubble in ’15-16.
The trip to North Texas is significant because it allows Gulley and Wickware, along with sophomore Danielle Williams, a chance to return to their home state.
