Eamonn Brennan ESPN Staff Writer 

One big matchup question heading into Indiana-UNC tonight was whether the Hoosiers would be able to keep Carolina -- which features the nation's top offensive rebounders by rate (Kennedy Meeks and Tony Bradley) and grabbed 46.6 percent of available offensive boards as a team in its first seven games -- off the glass. The Hoosiers are scoring, sure, but their 19-9 lead in the first eight minutes of the game also featured nine rebounds on the defensive end, and just one second chance for the Tar Heels.
