The Hoosiers will be without reserve forward Derek Elston for the final tuneup before the Big Ten season opens next week:
BLOOMINGTON, Ind. – Indiana junior forward Derek Elston will miss IU’s Thursday night game with the University of Maryland Baltimore County after having surgery this week to repair a broken nose suffered in practice.
Elston broke his nose after getting hit by an elbow from teammate Victor Oladipo. He is not expected to miss more than one game and will be ready for IU’s Big Ten opener Dec. 28 at Michigan State.
