No. 6 Indiana rebounded in a big way by routing Mount St. Mary's, 93-54.
IU, 10-1, lost its first game of the season earlier this week to Butler. The former No. 1 team took out their frustration on Mount St. Mary's.
The Hoosiers connected on nearly 71 percent (!!) of their field goals, including hitting 75 percent of their shots from the three-point line. IU finished with 27 assists. They shared the ball in a way that wasn't seen against Butler.
Indiana's also played much better defense against the Mountaineers, holding them to just 31 percent shooting.
Turnovers were still a concern for IU as coughed up the ball 19 times, including 12 stole possessions.
Five different Hoosiers finished the night in double digits in points.
Cody Zeller and Will Sheehey both had 16 points. Christian Watford had 15 points and eight rebounds.
Victor Oladipo had more high flying dunks and finished with 14 points. He also had five rebounds, five assists, and three steals.
Yogi Ferrell had eight points to go along with his nine assists. Remy Able connected on all five of his field goals and ended the night with 12 points.
Jordan Hulls was 3-for-3 for eight points and five assists.
Derek Elston returned from a knee injury for IU. He only played nine minutes, but managed two point, two rebound and a block.
Jeremy Hollowell didn't play and it appears in may have been illness related. Maurice Creek also didn't play and coach Tom Crean stated in his post game press conference that he will be out indefinitely with a right foot injury.
The Hoosiers will be in action again on Friday against Florida Atlantic.
