The basketball Cats were in a must-win situation, and they won. Survive and advance is the name of the game right now.

This group of heralded freshmen, alongside Willie Cauley-Stein and Alex Poythress, not to mention some other valuable bench players in Jarrod Polson, Jon Hood, Dominique Hawkins and the like...have struggled to meet the lofty expectations set out for them by the media, fans and really everyone.
But right now, they're surviving and advancing. Next up? The Louisville Cardinals on Friday night at approximately 9:45 in Indianapolis.
