Malik Reneau, a 6-foot-9 forward, had 26 points and 14 rebounds against Ohio State and is averaging 16.4 points and 6.2 rebounds per game this season. Senior guard Trey Galloway added 25 points and has increased his scoring totals in each of the last three games. Indiana may rely on him even more on Saturday as Kel’el Ware, the team’s second-leading scorer at 14.8 ppg, is questionable after landing awkwardly on his leg with 10 seconds left against Ohio State.
