New York, NY (SportsNetwork.com) - A pair of storied programs will meet up at Madison Square Garden on Tuesday night as part of the Jimmy V Classic, as the Indiana Hoosiers take on the fourth-ranked Louisville Cardinals. After suffering a head-scratching loss at home to Eastern Washington on Nov. 24, Indiana has righted the ship with three straight wins to pull to 7-1. The Hoosiers had one of their most dominating performances of the season on Saturday, as they closed out a season-opening eight-game homestand with a 95-49 triumph over Savannah State. Louisville also finished a lengthy homestand in style in its most recent game, as it dismissed FIU on Friday, 82-57, to remain unbeaten in seven tries this season. This marks the Cardinals second neutral-court contest on a national stage, having previously downed Minnesota in the Armed Forces Classic in Puerto Rico in the season opener, 81-68. Indiana leads the all-time series with Louisville by a 10-6 count, and this is the first matchup between the programs since 2003. The Hoosiers barely broke a sweat in their most recent game, as they opened up a commanding 43-17 lead at intermission and cruised to the 46-point victory from there. They outshot Savannah State from the field, 57.4 percent to 32.1 percent, had an outstanding night from 3-point range (10-of-21) and won the rebounding battle, 42-24. Yogi Ferrell and James Blackmon, Jr. paced the winning effort with 18 points apiece, with Ferrell adding seven assists as well. Troy Williams and Robert Johnson netted 12 and 10 points, respectively. Indiana has played at a high level on the offensive end of the court this season, as it shoots 52.4 percent from the field (including 43.9 percent from beyond the arc) on its way to 88.4 ppg, which is more than enough to support a modest scoring defense (69.2 ppg). Blackmon scores 19.5 ppg and has been lights out from long range (26-of-48). Ferrell is an elite playmaker on the perimeter with 17.3 ppg and 5.8 apg, while Williams (12.2 ppg, 5.3 rpg) and Johnson (11.1 ppg) have also been stellar. The Cardinals faced an early deficit in their contest with FIU but quickly turned things around with an 18-0 burst and never looked back from there en route to the 25-point win. They were lights out from the field in shooting 57.1 percent, and they paired that with an excellent defensive effort in forcing FIU into more turnovers (25) than field goals (20). Pacing five players in double figures was Anton Gill, who provided a spark off the bench with 15 points. Montrezl Harrell tallied a double-double with 13 points and 12 rebounds, Wayne Blackshear and Terry Rozier scored 12 points apiece and Chris Jones chipped in with 11 points. Its no surprise that Louisville is one of the nations top-ranked teams considering it has built up an astounding +26.7 scoring margin. The nations third-ranked scoring defense (49.3 ppg) has stifled opponents to the tune of nearly 20 turnovers per game. Harrell (16.1 ppg, 9.4 rpg) is one of the best big men in the country and is making field goals at a 61.5 percent clip. Rozier (13.0 ppg, 5.7 rpg) and Blackshear (12.9 ppg, 5.9 rpg) are also active in the paint, while Jones rounds out the double- digit scorers with 11.7 ppg. Austin Corbett Jersey .

Instead a letdown in a second-set tiebreaker proved costly for the Canadian as he dropped a three-set decision to Novak Djokovic on Saturday at the Italian Open. The second-ranked Djokovic will now renew his rivalry with top-ranked Rafael Nadal in the championship match Sunday. There will be an enticing womens championship too, with top-ranked Serena Williams to face Sara Errani, the tournaments first Italian finalist in nearly 30 years. Djokovic took his time before figuring out Raonics massive serve for a 6-7 (5), 7-6 (4), 6-3 victory in a three-hour match at the Foro Italico. "I did the things I wanted to do. I didnt execute in the moments I would have liked but I did create a lot of opportunities for myself," Raonic said. "I just wish I would have played a few situations differently. I had the right approach but wasnt able to execute well (all) of the time. "I felt I had a chance in the match. I brought my best tennis (so) I could give myself an opportunity -- which I was able to do today. It came down to a few moments and he performed better in those moments than I did." Raonic, from Thornhill, Ont., had 55 winners but also made 42 unforced errors. The 23-year-old missed out on three break-point chances in the second set while Djokovic earned an early break in the third for a lead he wouldnt relinquish. "It was a tight match that was decided in the first two sets on a few points," Djokovic said. "He put a lot of pressure on my service games. And when you serve that well, you dont have as much pressure on your return games." Raonics serve flirted with the 230 km/h mark at times and he fired 17 aces. "I cant recall the last time when I was feeling so helpless in the return games," Djokovic said. "It was brutal." In mens doubles action, Canadas Daniel Nestor and Serbian partner Nenad Zimonjic reached the final with a 7-6 (3), 4-6, 12-10 win over Bob and Mike Bryan of the United States. Raonic lost to Nadal in the final of the 2013 Rogers Cup in his lone Masters 1000 final appearance. He will return to a career-high No. 9 in the world rankings on Monday. Raonic will also be a top-eight seed at the French Open in two weeks since Argentinas Juan Martin Del Potro -- currently the world No. 7 -- will be unable to compete because of injury. The Italian Open is the last key clay-court tuneup before the upcoming French Open. Having been stretched to three sets in his opening three matches this week, Nadal finally put in a complete performance with a 6-2, 6-2 win over Grigor Dimitrov in the late semifinal. "Today was a good confirmation that I really played better ... a lot of positive things," Nadal said. "(Djokovic) is playing great and its going to be a really tough match." Nadal holds a 22-18 career edge vs. DDjokovic but the Serb won their last meeting for the Sony Open title in March in Key Biscayne, Florida.dddddddddddd. Nadal already has a record seven titles in Rome, while Djokovic is seeking his third championship at the Foro Italico. They have met in three finals here, with Nadal winning two of them. Williams overcame a second-set lapse to beat Ana Ivanovic 6-1, 3-6, 6-1 and gain a measure of revenge for a fourth-round loss to the Serb at this years Australian Open. Using vocal crowd support to her advantage, Errani fought back from a 4-1 deficit in the second set for a 6-3, 7-5 win over two-time Rome champion Jelena Jankovic. Williams is aiming for her third Rome title, having won this clay-court tuneup for Roland Garros in 2002 and last year. The American is 6-0 in her career against Errani and lost just one game in their last meeting, in the semifinals of last years French Open. "Shes just taken her game to a whole new level and she has so much confidence beating two really good top-10 players and two really great clay-court players," Williams said, also referring to Erranis win over second-seeded Li Na in the quarter-finals. "So I have a lot of work to do tomorrow. Its not going to be easy. And she has nothing to lose and she has the crowd behind her. So its going to be a really tough match for me." Nadal went the distance against Gilles Simon, Mikhail Youzhny and Andy Murray in his opening rounds this week but had relatively little trouble against Dimitrov, who was playing in his first Masters series semifinal. Afterward, Djokovic appealed for help for his flood-hit native Serbia, and wrote a message of support on a camera lens, adding I love you in Cyrillic. "This is a total catastrophe of biblical proportions," he said. "Half the country is in danger of not having electricity." Errani drew emotion from the crowd. "There were a few moments when I thought I might not pull it off but the fans were huge," said Errani, who is attempting to become the first Italian to win the tournament since Raffaella Reggi took the 1985 title in Taranto. The last Italian man to win was Adriano Panatta back in 1976. Its already Erranis best result since reaching the 2012 French Open final. Jankovic, the 2007 and 2008 Rome champion, repeatedly asked the chair umpire to come down and check marks but none of them were overturned, resulting only in the crowd stepping up its encouragement for Errani. "Just do it, Sara. Just do it, Sara," the fans cheered late in the second set. The highly partisan crowd frequently applauded Errani while points were still being played and cheered even when Jankovic double-faulted. "(The crowd) was all on her side but its normal, shes the local player," Jankovic said. "I tried to stay focused on my game, and play my tennis but she was the better player today." ------ With files from The Canadian Press.
