Eyeing IU

  • Wilson: Positive first week for IU
    Coming off a ground-and-pound victory over in-state rival Indiana State, Indiana would like to continue playing football. But alas, the schedule says the Hoosiers are off this week.
  • Indiana overpowers Indiana State
    BLOOMINGTON — After just one quarter, it was clear that Indiana Hoosiers coach Kevin Wilson has more confidence than ever in the Indiana running game. And by halftime, Hoosiers quarterback Nate Sudfeld had made so many handoffs it was strange

Hoosiers lead by 15 after messy half

BLOOMINGTON – Indiana leads Nicholls State 37-22 at halftime at Assembly Hall after one of the sloppiest halves of basketball of the season for the Hoosiers.

The Colonels are one of the worst teams in the country, but IU made them look good during the first eight minutes.

The Hoosiers committed seven turnovers before the 12-minute mark, made just three baskets and couldn't muster a lead until 12:45 remained in the half.

IU experimented offensively and defensively, which might have contributed to the miscues.

It tested out its full-court press, which it had not used this season, and worked in a few more high-post sets. Coach Tom Crean also changed the lineup quite a bit.

Luckily for the Hoosiers, the Colonels had the highest foul rate in the country entering the game – and it showed early. IU got into the bonus with 11:32 left in the half and hit the double-bonus with 7:48 to go and a 19-11 lead.

That didn't do much to satisfy Crean, though. The coach lit into his team during several timeouts.

Both teams had 11 turnovers in the first half. Senior forward Will Sheehey, freshman forward Noah Vonleh, sophomore forward Jeremy Hollowell and sophomore guard Yogi Ferrell all had six points for the Hoosiers.
