College basketball schedule: Jacksonville set to take on No. 5 Hoosiers

Jeff Blake-USA TODAY Sports

Jacksonville's showdown with No. 5 Indiana highlights the local college basketball action on Friday.

The Jacksonville Dolphins' tussle with the No. 5 Indiana Hoosiers is clearly the highlight of the local college basketball action Friday as the two teams square off from the Hoosiers' Assembly Hall in a primetime meeting. The UCF Golden Knights are also in action against the Howard Bison.

The Hoosiers might look to their meeting with the sub-.500 Dolphins as a tune up, but Indiana hasn't hit the court in a week, and will certainly use this game as a way to shake the rust off.

Against a tough Jacksonville squad led by freshman Jarvis Haywood, the Hoosiers will be tested as they try to avoid a second loss on the season to an unranked team.
