Quick thoughts on a 78-64 win over UT Arlington:
How it happened: Early on, it looked like Indiana would cruise to its fourth victory of the season against an overmatched team from the Sun Belt. But after the Hoosiers opened a 20-point lead early in the second half, this one was anything but easy for Indiana. UT Arlington started splashing 3s and Indiana’s offense grew stagnant. And as the Mavericks gained confidence, Assembly Hall grew quiet. UT Arlington never took the lead, just getting to within one at 61-60 with 6:33 to play. But Indiana answered the bell, despite being shorthanded. The Hoosiers finished the game on a 17-4 run for their fourth victory of the season.
