Ferrell leads No. 3 Indiana into game at Purdue

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. -

Kevin "Yogi" Ferrell is not a typical freshman point guard.

He's running the show for the nation's No. 3 team, Indiana, and he's still growing into the job.

While Ferrell has played a big role in the Hoosiers' improved defense, last year's Mr. Basketball runner-up in Indiana is starting to show he can shoot the ball, too, and just in time for Wednesday night's showdown at Purdue. He's shooting 52 percent from the field over the past five games.

The game could feature as many as eight starters who played high school basketball in Indiana. But the main attraction will be between Ferrell and Ronnie Johnson, who are considered the state's two best point guards in the 2012 recruiting class.
