Just one sizable CBB play to cap another +week
NFL Championship Sunday left us a Meager CBB Board
As we’d expect

Sun Jan 20, 2012 | 1:05 PM, EST | Big Ten Network
Welsh-Ryan Arena | Evanston, Illinois

#2 INDIANA HOOSIERS 15-2 (3-1 Conf)

Normally we’d see this as a spot to back IU:
Hoosiers red-assed after being out-slogged at HOME by Wisky

NW back home off inconceivable Road Win over Down-State Rival Illini
NW 2-6 last 8 straight-up at Home
NW having still not fully recovered from devastating personnel losses
Especially difficult is NW losing Drew Crawford,
Crawford was 3RD Team Big Ten & NW Top contributor & Sr Captain
NW also lost starter, JerShon Cobb for the season (suspension)

Nevertheless, NW stylistics present IU consistent problems
NW is the most regiments team in BIG-TEN
Wisconsin plays a LITTLE slower (62.7 Poss/Gm to NW 63.4)
Yet NW’s Billy Carmody’s Cats employ a straight-Princeton scheme

Drives Creen’s Hoosiers NUTS
Since Creens’ arrival in Bloomington,
MORE than ½ of Indiana’s Losses have been in their lowest ¼ Pace Games

Moreover, IU is proving mortal w/their lack of Depth
Indiana is systematically wilting late

IU hits UNDER 30% from Deep in last ¼ of all Conf Games
NW as a double-digit dog here just too good to pass up
Especially since Cat’s Big Dog Line
Is probably due as much to their player losses as it is to
NW recent poor home play

I like NW to cover

NORTHWESTERN +12 (-110 | 5-Dimes)

CLEMSON +9½ (-110 | 5-Dimes)

All the best, guys
