first_img1. Handle the crowdAssembly Hall has historically had some of the most vocal fans in the country. If the Badgers are to earn their fourth-straight Big Ten road victory, they will have to play under control and block out the always-raucous crowd.2. Get D.J. White into foul troubleIndiana’s leading scorer, rebounder and shot blocker is also prone to foul trouble. He has been charged with at least three personal fouls in all but one conference game and has recorded four fouls three times.3. Take advantage of Indiana’s lack of sizeThe Hoosiers have only three players taller than 6-foot-7 on their roster. Only two, White and junior Lance Stemler, see significant minutes. Particularly if White gets into foul trouble (see No. 2), the Badgers’ frontcourt should have a big game.4. Contest shootersIndiana leads the Big Ten in three-point shooting (38 percent) and is coming off a 10-of-20 performance from downtown against Michigan on Saturday. Sunday, the Badgers held Iowa to 14 percent from behind the arc, and a similar performance will be needed against the Hoosiers.5. Make the freebiesIndiana is particularly aggressive defensively but has a tendency to get sloppy, as evidenced by their league worst 20.6 fouls per game. The Badgers have shot over 100 more free throws than anyone else in the Big Ten so far this season, and converting trips to the line into points will be crucial, particularly down the stretch.last_img read more
