Outside of Will Sheehey, the Hoosiers bench has been an enigma. Sheehey carries this unit, averaging 9.9 points per game.
Other bench contributors, Remy Abell, Derek Elston, Jeremy Hollowell and Hanner Mosquera-Perea have underachieved. This season, Abell has averaged 4.5 points per game, Elston 1.0 points, Hollowell 3.4 points and Mosquera-Perea 0.9 points.
The Big Ten schedule has been equally unkind to Indiana's bench.
In the last five games, the two highest scorers of that bunch, Abell and Hollowell, have only scored 1.8 and 1.6 points per game, respectively.
To win in March, it will take a team effort. If the starters go cold or get in foul trouble and the Hoosiers have to rely on their bench, they could be in big trouble.
