Indiana vs. Iowa Postgame Notes
Jan. 16, 2007
Indiana held Iowa to just 17 points in the first half. It is the fewest single-half points that Indiana has held its opponent to since Dec. 19, 2004, when the Hoosiers held Missouri to 16 points in the first half.
Iowa was held 8:25 in the first half without a field goal (15:42 to 7:17), and went 0-for-6 in the span.
D.J. White had a double-double for the second straight game with 23 points and 12 rebounds. Both numbers matched his career highs in the categories. Of the seven career-double-doubles that White has, this is the first time that he has had a double-double in back-to-back games. The last time a player had a double-double in back-to-back games was Marko Killingsworth in the Big Ten Tournament against No. 7/6 Ohio State on March 11 (10 points, 10 rebounds) and Wisconsin on March 10 (20 points, 12 rebounds).
The same five players (D.J. White, Stemler, Bassett, Calloway, Wilmont) have started all five Big Ten games this season.
Indiana was held to just eight points off the bench. The Hoosier players off the bench have been held to single digits just one other time this season, against Butler (five points).
With a 4-1 start in the Big Ten, Kelvin Sampson is the first Indiana head coach since Branch McCracken in 1938-39 to win three of his first four conference games. McCracken opened his first Big Ten campaign 9-1 before finishing 9-3.
This is the fourth straight year that Indiana has opened the Big Ten campaign with a 4-1 record.
