Jordan Hulls scored 20 points as Indiana defeated Penn State 75-58 Thursday at Bankers Life Fieldhouse.
The Hoosiers lost guard Verdell Jones III to a sprained right knee in the first half. He was under evaluation after the game.
Here are some of the keys:
Key stretch: Indiana opened the first half on a 16-2 run to take a 54-34 lead.
Double the trouble: Cody Zeller and Christian Watford recorded double-doubles for the Hoosiers. Zeller had 19 points and 10 rebounds. Watford finished with 14 points and 10 rebounds.
A long time coming: Indiana won its first Big Ten tournament game since defeating Wisconsin 61-56 on March 10, 2006.
Up next: The Hoosiers face fourth-seeded Wisconsin. The Badgers won the only meeting in the regular season, 57-50 on Jan. 26 in Madison.
"Without a doubt, it's a tough afternoon. You want to win, which we did. You want to play well. But you want to do it with your whole team, and we didn't get that opportunity today."
