IU overcame a slow start to remain undefeated last night. The Hoosiers (8-0) eventually rolled past Coppin State, 87-51.
The No. 1 team in the country looked sluggish and unfocused to open the game. IU was coming off a big win earlier in the week against North Carolina.
Will Sheehey came off the bench to give IU a big lift. He finished the game with 14 points, six rebounds, and four assists. Victor Oladipo and Sheehey began feeding off each other early in the second half to push IU's lead.
Oladipo had an impressive night finishing with another 14 points, six rebounds, and six assists. On defense, he managed three steals and a block.
Remy Abell connected on all of his shots, including going two-for-two from the three-point line and finished with 10 points. Christian Watford also found double digits with 10 points and added seven rebounds.
Cody Zeller didn't get the ball under the rim too often, but managed nine points and snagged seven rebounds.
Jordan Hulls had perhaps his worst game in recent memory. The senior was 2-for-6 shooting the ball with just six points and committed three turnovers.
Coppin State did an impressive job of playing the passing lanes and forced IU into 14 turnovers.
IU will face Central Connecticut State next Saturday.
