Lots of good games tonight including some great B1G action

5:30 BTN: Northwestern @ Ohio
7:00 ESPN2: #12 Georgetown @ #4 Louisville
7:30 BTN: #15 Indiana @ #17 MSU
9:00 ESPN2: #14 Miss St @ #7 Baylor
9:30 BTN: Purdue @ Iowa

Indiana-MSU is definitely the most intriguing game of the night. Battle of two teams who have impressed early after being unranked in the preseason. Each trying to prove they're for real. Indiana hasn't really been tested on the road yet and MSU has definitely looked inconsistent,

Indiana 29 - MSU 36 at half. Indiana made a run at the end of the half to cut the deficit but their offense looked anemic the rest of the time. MSU shutting them down. Unless they find a sustainable offensive flow, I don't like their chances in this game.
Syracuse is killing Seton Hall

Georgetown-Louisville very tight midway through the second half.

Indiana looks so confused on offense. They want to throw it to Zeller but he's well defended or on the bench dealing with fouls. They don't seem to have anything else in their playbook. There offense should really run through Oladipo, instead of white PG whose name I don't know because he has yet to do anything of value.

Hoya Saxa! Can't be happier with this Georgetown team - after losing so many star players and seniors last year, everyone had us pegged for a rebuilding year with 10 freshman and sophomores on the team. Two victories over Memphis, and beating both Alabama and Louisville in their home courts has me thinking we could be on track for a great year, at the very least they've already exceeded my expectations. Hope they can keep the momentum going!
