RALEIGH, N.C. – Jordan Hulls scored 20 points and hit a momentum-shifting three-pointer in the final 2 minutes of Indiana’s 86-75 victory over North Carolina State on Wednesday night in the Big Ten/ACC Challenge.
Freshman Cody Zeller finished with 19 points for the Hoosiers (7-0). The Big Ten’s most accurate shooting team passed its toughest test to date by shooting 50 percent (30 of 60) and hitting seven threes.
Indiana has won all seven games by double figures – with the previous six coming by at least 16.
Lorenzo Brown scored 19 points and Indiana native Scott Wood added 16 before fouling out for the Wolfpack (5-2). They pulled within 76-75 when C.J. Williams’ layup attempt was goaltended with 2:03 left.
The Hoosiers ran some clock before Hulls swished a three with about 161/2 minutes remaining. N.C. State couldn’t make it a one-possession game the rest of the way.
