Indiana defeated South Carolina State 102-60 in the team’s second game of the Las Vegas Classic. Here are some of the highlights.
Key number: 8. IU had a season-low eight turnovers. Meanwhile, the Hoosiers finished with 24 assists (Jordan Hulls had a team-high four).
That’s a fact: The 42-point margin of victory is the largest in the Tom Crean era. The previous mark, 38 points, came last year against Bryant.
“We had a lot of fastbreak opportunities. We were driving, kicking it and making the extra pass. It was beautiful to see us do that. That is the reason why we scored over 100 points.”

The opponent’s view
Here’s what South Carolina State’s Tim Carter said about Indiana:
“I thought in the second half Indiana did an absolute superb job of executing in the half-court. We told our guys that the first four minutes of the second half was going to be the key to the ballgame. I believe they came out and scored (seven) straight points.
“I think that was the ballgame.”
