At the buzzer: Indiana 102, Austin Peay 76


A few quick thoughts on Indiana’s 102-76 win over Austin Peay:

How it happened: It wasn’t pretty (particularly defensively), but Indiana caught fire from distance midway through the second half to pull away from Austin Peay. At one point, Indiana made 15 consecutive field goal attempts and the Hoosiers finished the game 16-of-27 on 3-pointers.


Bruce Brown narrows to two, will announce Wednesday

Indiana’s top remaining recruiting target in the class of 2016 – Vermont Academy guard Bruce Brown – has narrowed his list of schools to two.

Indiana, along with the University of Miami, are the finalists for Brown, he announced on Twitter.


What to Expect: Austin Peay


Indiana is back in action tonight at Assembly Hall against another Ohio Valley Conference (OVC) opponent in Austin Peay. 

The game will be broadcast live on BTN at 7 p.m. ET with Kevin Kugler and Joe Crispin on the call.

In its final tuneup before it begins a stretch of five of six games against major conference opponents (Creighton, three in Maui and Duke), Indiana is unlikely to be challenged tonight in Bloomington.

Five takeaways from Indiana’s win over Eastern Illinois


In their season opener, Indiana crushed Eastern Illinois, 88-49, on Friday night at Assembly Hall.

Here’s a look at five takeaways from the win:

· It was Indiana’s best defensive performance in almost two years: From a points per possession allowed perspective, this was the best defensive effort Indiana since a win over Evansville at Assembly Hall in November of 2013.

The Hoosiers allowed just .716 points per trip to the Panthers, a lower mark than IU allowed in any game all of last season. All preseason, the question has been: How improved will Indiana be defensively?


Notebook: Hoosiers dominate glass in season opener


It only took about five minutes for Indiana to establish their dominance over Eastern Illinois.

After leading 9-7 with 15:11 to play in the first half, the Hoosiers outscored the Panthers 40-10 the rest of the half on their way to a comfortable 88-49 win in the season opener.

“I think it was just the whole energy of the place picked up,” senior Max Bielfeldt said. “We got a couple offensive rebounds. We got some big plays by a lot of the guys and just built on one thing to the next. Defense picked up and we were getting stops. It just all piled on to bring the energy way up and we just rode that and it turned out to be a really good thing.”
