Found December 09, 2012 on The Assembly Call:
Last night, Indiana improved to 9-0 on the season with a 100-69 victory over Central Connecticut State. Cody Zeller led the way statistically with a goodness-gracious double-double of 19 points and 19 rebounds. But Victor Oladipo led the way in highlights, busting out a number of memorable dunks (and filling the stat sheet in his own right). It was a dominant performance by the #1 team in America. Unfortunately, the game also featured some bad news. Austin Etherington suffered a knee injury and will be out for the season. He is expected to make a full recovery. We talked about it all on another victorious episode of The Assembly Call.
