After a lackluster Big Ten regular season, the Indiana Hoosiers head into the conference tournament needing to win the whole thing in order to make it to the Big Dance.
When thinking of Indiana's mindset for the week, using the famous poker motto of "a chip and a chair" would be fitting. Basically, the expression means that no matter how far you are down, as long as you have one chip left, a comeback is possible.
The Hoosiers have a spot at the table. Now, to get to the NCAA tournament, they just have to make use of the single chip they have left.
And though Indiana is the No. 8 seed with their backs against the wall, don't count them out of the B1G tourney. The Hoosiers have beaten every team in the conference with the exception of Purdue, Nebraska and Michigan State, and there is a chance they won't have to face any of the three.
So, despite Indiana's regular-season mishaps, here's why it can make a deep run in the Big Ten tournament.
