Best bet on the Tube


The setting seems familiar to third-ranked Indiana. The nation’s No. 1 men’s basketball team is coming to town for a pivotal game that could dictate the top of next week’s rankings. A year ago, the target was Kentucky. Now, it’s Michigan’s turn. Indiana (18-2, 7-1 Big Ten) has beaten a top-ranked team only six times in school history. The game ( 6 p.m., ESPN) features two national player of the year candidates in the Indiana’s Cody Zeller and Michigan’s Trey Burke, and the winner will take sole possession of the conference lead. It’s unclear whether the Wolverines (20-1, 7-1) will have forward Jordan Morgan. – AP
