INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Indiana coach Kevin Wilson learned a long time ago that every card can be a winner — if you play the right hand.
That hasn't been easy for Wilson and the Hoosiers (2-3, 0-2 Big Ten). They've lost 10 straight Big Ten games and 20 consecutive league games against teams from outside the state of Indiana.
Wilson is hoping his trump card this week might be the fast-break paced offense that has become Indiana's trademark over the past two seasons.
It may not be enough to get past No. 8 Ohio State on Saturday. Even if the Hoosiers score points by the dozens, Wilson knows his defense must still find a way to contain Heisman Trophy candidate Braxton Miller and the league's best team.
