The Indiana Hoosiers are coming off of their first outright Big Ten Championship since 1993, and there will continue to be high expectations for the future despite the loss of seven players from last season's roster.
Tom Crean has put together another highly touted recruiting class for the second year in a row. Last year's four-player freshman class was ranked 11th by ESPN—Yogi Ferrell, Jeremy Hollowell, Hanner Mosquera-Perea and Peter Jurkin. This year's incoming freshmen topped that combination and was ranked fourth in the country by ESPN.
As IU's young team moves forward with its summer workouts with the start of the season a few months away, several games stick out on the schedule. The Hoosiers no longer have an annual marquee home-and-home matchup like they did with Kentucky for many years. However, between IU's Big Ten and nonconference schedules, there are more than enough exciting matchups for the Hoosiers and their fans this season.
The games are ranked based on the strength of Indiana's opponents and previous matchups between the schools.
