The Northwestern Wildcats are scheduled to play against the Indiana Hoosiers on February 16, 2023, at 2:00:00 AM UTC.
The Indiana team is uncertain about their upcoming game against Northwestern due to doubts about the availability of Race Thompson, who missed the previous game, and Xavier Johnson’s return.
Trayce Jackson-Davis is Indiana’s key player on offense, using over 30% of their possessions while efficiently attacking the rim. Despite facing double teams, Jackson-Davis draws fouls at a top-60 rate and is an excellent passer. Jalen Hood-Schifino has emerged as the second playmaker on the team due to Johnson’s midseason injury, excelling as a starting point guard.
Indiana’s offensive strategy focuses on pick-and-roll or post-play between Hood-Schifino and Jackson-Davis, resulting in a low rate of 3-point shots. Although Indiana’s size ranks in the top 20 in the country, they lack size around the rim, making them vulnerable to opponents’ frequent drives.

Meanwhile, the Northwestern team relies on their defense to win games, with a long, athletic team playing slowly. They force turnovers at a top-35 rate and have an average defense against 3-point shots, but they rank in the top 20 in defending 2-point shots. The offensive leaders, Boo Buie and Chase Audige run the pick-and-roll at the seventh-highest rate in the country while being careful with the ball.
Northwestern prefers to win games by holding their opponents to 65 points or less, playing an “ugly” game. Although they shoot 3-point shots on over 40% of their possessions, they struggle to finish and rank in the high 200s in both 2-point offense and defense.
