Indiana Basketball: Why Hoosiers Are Poised for a Deep Big Ten Tournament Run
Pat Lovell-USA TODAY Sports

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.
