Indiana opened Big Ten play with a 69-60 loss to Penn State. Her are some of the highlights.
Key number: 5. Indiana’s frontcourt combined for five points. Christian Watford had three on 1 of 5 shooting. He was slowed down because of back spasms.
That’s a fact: Penn State won for just the second time in 17 games at Assembly Hall. The Nittany Lions also won 65-55 on Jan. 17, 2009.
“We didn’t play sound defense at the beginning and we didn’t play sound defense at the end. They started out hitting three or four wide-open threes, you can’t start off every game like that.”
- Indiana junior guard Verdell Jones III
