    Inside the Series
    Indiana leads the all-time series against Illinois 76-69, but the Illini have won the last two regular season meetings. The Hoosiers dropped a 67-61 decision at Assembly Hall last season bringing their overall mark against the Illini at the Hall to 45-26.
    The two teams also met in the Big Ten Tournament semifinals and the Hoosiers knocked off the top-seeded Illini58-56.

    In a Good Position

    Indiana sits in as good of a position as any team in the Big Ten as the Hoosiers have already posted three road wins and own a 5-1 mark in conference play. No team has had as much success on the road as the Hoosiers. Only Ohio State has won more than one game on the road and four teams still have yet to pick up a road victory. With four road games in their first six contests Indiana closes out with six of its final 10 contests at home.

    Looking for Best Start Since 1992-93
    This marks the first time that Indiana opened Big Ten play with a 5-1 mark since 1993-94. The Hoosiers are looking to move to 6-1 for the first time since the Big Ten Championship season in 1992-93. Here is a look at the Hoosier's conference starts.

He leads the Big Ten in scoring (20.8), ranks second in rebounding (8.3) and leads the conference in blocked shots (2.8). No player has been more important to his team than Jeffries has been to the Hoosiers.

    Road Warriors
    Indiana's non-conference schedule has been well documented with 10 of its 12 games coming away from Assembly Hall, including 8,500 miles of travel before making a home appearance. The games away from home only got the Hoosiers tougher for Big Ten road play. Indiana's three Big Ten road wins already matches its total from last year and is just one shy of its top mark (1998-99) since the 16-game Big Ten schedule.

    Coverdale Steps Up to Face Frank Williams
    Tom Coverdale had two of his top games against Big Ten competition last year when the Hoosiers faced Illinois. The first matchup saw Coverdale score 16 points, grab four rebounds and dish out three assists. In the Big Ten Tournament semifinals Coverdale netted 17 points on 7-of-14 shooting and grabbed seven rebounds and handed out five assists. He has averaged 16.5 points per game in head-to-head competition with Illinois' Frank Williams.

    Jeffries' Career Projections
    Jared Jeffries is on pace to put up career numbers never seen before in Indiana history. He has indicated that he may have one more year with the Hoosiers and has intentions of attempting to graduate in three years before heading to the NBA. But, if Jeffries stays in Bloomington for four years here are the numbers that he is on pace to post.

    Points 2,077 5th
    Rebounds 912 5th
    Steals 199 1st
    Blocks 153 4th

    Jeffries Has Gone for 20+ in Four in A Row

    Big Three Enjoy Three-Point Stripe at Hall
    Jared Jeffries, Tom Coverdale and Dane Fife have had success with the long ball in Assembly Hall this season as the trio has combined for six threes per home game and is shooting .462 from beyond the arc. The rest of the Hoosier roster has hit .160 (4-25) of their three-point attempts at home this season.
    Odle May Be Big Ten's Most Improved
    Last year it was Tom Coverdale who surprised everyone after playing just a total of 41 minutes the previous season. Senior Jarrad Odle is having that same type of career year in his final season with the Hoosiers. Odle has started in five of the team's six Big Ten games after starting just once in his three previous conference seasons. He has put up career numbers already this year.
    On the season Odle is averaging 7.9 points per game, 4.8 points more than his career average heading into this year. He already has 63 points in conference play this year. He scored a total of 10 points in Big Ten play as a freshman, 35 as a sophomore and 24 as a junior.

    Hornsby and Coverdale Caring for the Ball
    Tom Coverdale and Kyle Hornsby rank first and second in the Big Ten in assist/turnover ratio. Coverdale owns a ratio of 3.9 with 31 assists as compared to just eight turnovers. Hornsby has dished out 22 assists and committed just seven turnovers for a ratio of 3.14.
    Coverdale is coming off the Penn State game were he dished out nine assists and did not commit a turnover. It marked the third time in Big Ten play that he did not commit a turnover.
    Hornsby's 22 assists, which included a career-high seven against Northwestern, in Big Ten play is already a career-best for him as he had 11 and 17 in his first two seasons.

    His Game is Not Just Offensive
    Not only is Jared Jeffries a frontrunner for Big Ten Player of the Year, but he is starting to give teammate Dane Fife a run for his money for Defensive Player of the Year. In six conference games this season he has blocked 17 shots (2.83 per game). He now has 64 career blocked shots, just three short of cracking the school's all-time top ten list. His shot blocking has been extra important the last four games as the team's top two shot blockers, George Leach and Jeff Newton have combined for just one block in those four games.

    Leach Looking for a Swat
    George Leach blocked 37 shots in the non-conference season but has yet to block a shot in Big Ten play. While being slowed by an ankle injury Leach has seen action in just 19 Big Ten minutes. He is coming off of the top Big Ten game of his career as he netted nine points and pulled down six rebounds at Penn State.
    Newton's Numbers
    When Jeff Newton produces, so does Indiana. In the five conference wins by the Hoosiers, Newton combined for 34 points (6.8), 31 rebounds (6.2), and eight blocks (1.6) off the bench. In the Indiana loss to Ohio State Newton went 0-2 from the field with four points, zero blocks and only two rebounds.
    Indiana is 8-2 all-time when Newton scores 10+ points in Big Ten action.

    Moye Provides Spark Off Bench
    A.J. Moye has played in 10+ minutes in each of the last five games, including 20 minutes at Penn State. He had his top Big Ten game this year against the Nittany Lions with five points and seven rebounds. He has not committed a turnover in his last 55 minutes of play.

    Perry Getting More Comfortable
    Freshman Donald Perry had the best Big Ten game of his young career at Penn State as he netted six points on two-of-two from the floor. Perry has played in 10+ minutes in all six conference games this year.

    Hornsby Racking Up the Minutes
    Kyle Hornsby had played 30+ minutes in three of the team's first six Big Ten games and played 26, 29 and 19 in the other three contests. He has reached the 30-minute plateau four times this season. Heading into this year he had played 30+ minutes just twice before in his first two seasons.

    When Hornsby is On
    Indiana has won six of the last seven games in which Kyle Hornsby has hit 2+ three-pointers. All-time Indiana is 11-6 when goes for two or more threes in a game. After going 0-for-6 from three-point range at home against Penn State he has hit 7-of-11 (.636) from three-point range over the last four games.

    Double Dipping
    Jared Jeffries has recorded double-doubles in each of the last two games with 22 and 10 against Ohio State and 22 and 13 against Penn State. He has never had three straight double-doubles in his career.

    Coverdale From Long Range
    Indiana has never lost when Tom Coverdale connects on 3+ threes in a single game. He has accomplished the feat six times this year and the Hoosiers are 6-0 and they are 12-0 when he has done it over his three-year career. He his hit 15-of-25 (.600) from long-range in the last four games.

    Jeffries Showing Range
    Jared Jeffries has connected on 18 three-pointers this season hitting for .409 from behind the arc. Last year he hit just 12 threes shooting .245 from long range. Five times this year he has connected on 2+ three-pointers and the Hoosiers have won all five games. In fact when Jeffries hits a single three Indiana is 9-1 this season and 15-4 all-time.

    What an Improvement by Fife
    Dane Fife has hit 32 three-pointers this season, just one short of the number of threes he hit in his first three seasons.
    Three-Point Shooting
    This Year 32-65 .447
    Junior Year 19-62 .295
