The Hoosiers face not only their first road test Saturday night, they face a very tough one in Southern Illinois. The Carbondale faithful should be up for this one and it should be a stiff test for the Hoosiers. But after the past week, some notable flaws in the IU armor have been exposed. Which one worries you the most heading into the matchup against the Salukis?
1. IU’s defense: maybe their biggest weakness this season
2. The Hoosiers’ past road woes: Last season, it seemed like IU couldn’t buy a win on the road. Will that trend continue in Kelvin Sampson’s second year?
3. Eric Gordon having an off night: If Gordon’s cold from the perimeter, can the role player’s step up like they did Tuesday?
4. The absence of Jordan Crawford: the spark off the bench will be serving his second of a two-game suspension. Like against Georgia Tech, his play will be missed.
5. Any others?
I’m curious to see what you all think. Should be a great game tomorrow night.
