Victor Oladipo and Will Sheehey both scored 14 points to lead No. 1 Indiana to an 87-51 win over Coppin State on Saturday night.
The top-ranked Hoosiers (8-0) overcame poor shooting at the start of the game and pulled away from the Eagles (1-6). Indiana missed its first nine shots and didn't take the lead until Christian Watford's 3-pointer with 9:25 left in the first half.
That gave Indiana a 14-11 lead, and the Hoosiers never trailed again. Watford and Remy Abell both added 10 points to the winning effort as Indiana recovered from its early shooting woes and finished 31 of 60 (51.7 percent) from the field.
Coppin State (1-6), playing its first game ever against the nation's top-ranked team, showed little stage fright. The Eagles fell to 1-48 against ranked teams and 0-25 in games against Big Ten opponents.
Taariq Cephas led Coppin State with 13 points, and Michael Murray had 9 points and 12 rebounds, marking his sixth straight game with double-digit rebounds.
