The Indiana-Iowa game postponed this week has been rescheduled for 9 p.m. Thursday at Assembly Hall, the Big Ten announced this morning.
ESPN will broadcast the game.
The date creates a cluster in the Hoosiers' schedule, falling soon after games at Northwestern on Saturday and on Tuesday at Wisconsin.
They will play three times in six days and four times in nine days, including a March 2 visit from Ohio State.
"You can't even think about what that means," coach Tom Crean said. "We better get ready for this weekend and think about how we approach practice so that we're at a good point next week."
The makeup date with the Hawkeyes was necessary because a piece of metal fell at Assembly Hall that caused safety concerns. It will open a three-game homestand capped by a March 5 bout with Nebraska.
In a statement, Indiana athletic director Fred Glass said both university engineers and outside consultants advised that resolutions to the structural issues will be "100 percent complete by early next week."
"Assembly Hall will be safe and ready to host Thursday's men's basketball game without any limitations or restrictions," Glass said.
Crean said it was important to reschedule the Iowa game at Assembly Hall and not at an alternate venue.
"It's a great building that had a tough moment," Crean said. "You want everybody that's used to being here to be here. So much is put into making this building be the national treasure that it is."
Crean said he thought all parties involved in the rescheduling process, including Iowa and the league office, handled it well.
