    The Opening Tip
    The Indiana men's basketball team is ranked 10th in the AP Poll and 11th in the ESPN/USA Today Coaches Poll and will host Illinois in its Big Ten Conference home opener.

    The Hoosiers are 257-50 all-time at Assembly Hall against the league.

    IU has won its last nine games, the longest winning streak during Kelvin Sampson's two-year tenure, and is coming off a 78-64 win at Michigan on January 8.

    The Illini are coming off a 70-60 loss at Wisconsin.

    The teams met three times last year, with the Hoosiers winning 65-61 in Bloomington, while falling to Illinois, 51-43 in Champaign and 58-54 in overtime at the Big Ten Tournament.

    Indiana has the fourth longest home court winning streak in the country having won its last 26 games in Assembly Hall and the Hoosiers have won four of the last five meetings between the two teams in Bloomington.

    Indiana's current nine-game game winning streak is its longest since the start of the 2002-03 season and with a win, the Hoosiers would have a 10-game winning streak for the 22nd time in school history.

    The Hoosiers are currently enjoying their longest continuous string of success since they won 13 in a row in the 1992-93 season.

    Up Next
    The Hoosiers will finish a stretch which has them playing three of their first four games on the road in conference play.

    IU goes to Minnesota on January 17 for the third of seven games this season that tip off after 9 p.m. in Bloomington.

    Indiana then will enjoy a three-game homestand when it hosts Penn State (January 20), Iowa (January 23) and UConn (January 26).
