Notebook: Abell stays perfect

The No. 1 Hoosiers seemed to lack energy early in Monday night’s game against North Dakota State. They were out of position at times on defense, and they too often settled for contested shots. But in the second half, that energy level picked up. Indiana was flying around and making hustle plays, finally giving the large Assembly Hall crowd a reason to cheer. A primary reason for...

Indiana expect another top recruiting class

Indiana is expected to have one of the nation's biggest and best recruiting classes. Purdue coach Matt Painter thinks he got just what he needed with the three recruits he signed Wednesday morning.

Notebook: Hulls reaches 1,000 point plateau

It seemed only fitting that Jordan Hulls would achieve a scoring milestone by knocking down a 3-pointer. It’s Hulls’ signature shot, after all, and a shot he’s been able to focus on even more this season with the addition of Yogi Ferrell. In Thursday night’s 99-45 win against Sam Houston State, Hulls knocked down an open 3 from the top of the key to record his 1,000th-point...

The Minute After: Sam Houston State

Thoughts on a 99-45 win over the Bearkats: I. Indiana breezed through their first two regular season contests, but tonight was just another level. Unlike the first two wins that started a little slow, Indiana was all gas, no brakes from the start here and this thing reached blowout territory before the halftime buzzer even sounded. It was, to quote the great offensive cliché, a...

Zeller finished with 22 points and nine rebounds, while Abell scored a career-high 14, including seven straight during the run that...

The Minute After: North Dakota State

Thoughts on a 87-61 win over the Bison: I. It is early, and grand, bold proclamations about anything at this juncture are’t wise. Still, I’m willing to go out on a limb with this: These Hoosiers are playmakers. Go on down the line: Cody Zeller, Yogi Ferrell, Victor Oladipo, Christian Watford, Jordan Hulls, Will Sheehey, Remy Abell, Jeremy Hollowell — these cats can ball. Tougher...

No. 1 Indiana 87, N. Dakota St. 61

Cody Zeller and his teammates were not themselves Monday night. The 7-foot center had an excuse - he was sick. His teammates looked like they caught the same bug. Fortunately, the Hoosiers found a remedy at halftime. Zeller, Remy Abell and Jeremy Hollowell turned the game with a second-half run that finally allowed No. 1 Indiana to pull away to an 87-61 victory over pesky North...
