IU's James Blackmon to undergo knee surgery

Big blow to a team that already isn't very good. Gonna be interesting to see what they do against a Wisconsin team tonight that isn't very good, either.

This puts a lot more pressure on Yogi Ferrell to score and shoot well.  Zeisloft and Robert Johnson have been shooting very poorly the last 2 games, so IU needs them to step up as well.  Do we know how long Blackmon will be out for?

Well they are 25th in Kenpom, right behind Michigan, so I wouldn't necessarily say they aren't very good. Definitely a team we are fighting for to be in the top 5 of the conference this year.
