Notebook: Zeller makes impact in different ways

BLOOMINGTON – Cody Zeller scored two points. But he impacted Indiana in other ways in a 72-49 victory against Penn State Wednesday at Assembly Hall.

"He had double-figure deflections. He was really good with the rebounding, especially in the first half," IU coach Tom Crean said.

Zeller had eight rebounds.

"He facilitates for others and moves the ball at a good rate," Crean said. "He didn't really look for that many opportunities to score (0 for 4 from the floor), but I'm not concerned about that. He will. He does a lot of different things in the flow of the game."

Big block

Hanner Mosquera-Perea created a buzz at Assembly Hall when he blocked a shot by D.J. Newbill with 12:08 to go in the first half.

"Hanner can come up and block some shots but he still needs to dive into the game plan and the film because he's the most athletically gifted player I think I've ever seen besides Vic (Victor Oladipo)," junior forward Will Sheehey said. "So if he keeps bringing that out he's going to be a fantastic player."

The opponent's view

Penn State tried to mix things up defensively against the Hoosiers.

"They are a very talented group and as a coach you have to do everything you can to try to help your team be successful," Penn State coach Patrick Chambers said. "I felt like we mixed it up a lot, played a lot of zone, but a little man and disguised the zone. We did a lot of different things and for a while it worked, but then talent takes over and they started making threes.

"Eleven threes is just too many because we are not a great three-point shooting team."
