I suppose you could follow the IUPUI men's basketball twitter account. I couldn't find a reputable site where Jaguar fans convene to talk about sports, but that's not all that surprising since it's a research university and they're probably studying us which leaves them little time to study other things.

Things to Watch

Well, IUPUI is definitely a university in Indianapolis. Because they exist in Indiana, they were forced to put a basketball team together. IUPUI plays in the Summit League alongside our midtown friend UNO. The Jaguars took Marquette to overtime somehow but lost 75-71. The Jaguars utilize good ball movement to score, dishing it down low and kicking it back out once the defense commits. They make a lot of good hustle plays and are pretty tenacious on the glass. The Jaguars have only won three games this season against pretty weak opponents. They've been blown out by NC State, Purdue and Missouri State. They've notched wins against the sycamores of Indiana State, Miama(OH) and Kentucky... state. Look for Darell Combs, Matt O'Leary and Marcellus Barksdale to be the essential pieces in tonight's game against Creighton.

Creighton is coming off a pretty big win against Nebraska where the Bluejays looked the best they have all year. Geoffrey Groselle has been absolutely dominant these past few weeks, becoming the senior leader we all sorta hoped he'd become. Mo Watson and Isaiah Zierden have been great so far this year for the Bluejays as they man the front court for the Jays.

This is about as milquetoast as I can get, folks. I'm not feeling too hot today so I apologize for my lacking performance in this game preview. I promise I'll do better next time.
