Indiana is coached by Tom Crean, who is 148-119 in Bloomington in his 9th season with the Hoosiers. Crean is 338-215 in his 18th season overall, with a previous stint at Marquette.

Indiana holds a 7-6 advantage over Kansas in the all-time series, but KU has won six of the past seven meetings. The last meeting between the two was back on Dec 16, 1995, a 91-83 Kansas victory in Kansas City, MO.

Bill Self is 4-3 all-time against Indiana, but obviously has not faced the Hoosiers while at KU.

Kansas is working on a 14 game season-opening win streak.

Kansas went 12-4 last season against ranked opponents.
