Walking into Indiana's Assembly Hall in Bloomington can blow you away if you've never been there before. It's loud, the students are whipped into a frenzy and it can remind you of a high school gym on a Friday night of a really big ball game.
That's what Northwestern has to deal with Wednesday night when they face the No. 18 Hoosiers.
"We won three of the last four and we feel confident," Drew Crawford said. "It's a very tough place to play and they have great support down there. We have to stay composed as a team and [freshman point guard] Dave [Sobolewski] is going to do that for us."
Sobolewski has never played at Assembly Hall, but he hasn't really asked for advice on the experience and notes that every arena the Wildcats play at is a tough environment.
"Their fans are nuts there, but we've seen crazy atmospheres all year long so we'll be ready," Sobolewski said. "They have the best three-point percentage in the conference and we can't let them get any good looks. They can catch fire pretty easily, especially at home."
