Analysis
Beating Indiana, a top 10 team, would be a big plus on their r�sum�, and fellow middies Butler and Western Kentucky both look like NCAA tournament teams. The Salukis' schedule strength last year ranked 30th, and this year's could be helped or hurt by the Anaheim Classic, matching them possibly with Mississippi State and USC, or giving them UC Irvine and South Alabama.
