Indiana Postgame Notes
Indiana remained perfect in exhibition play over the last 10 years (16-0) when playing against NCAA Division II or III opponents.
The 54 total rebounds in the game would be more than any game during the 2013-14 season. The last time IU grabbed as many or more rebounds as that in a game was Dec. 29, 2007, against Chicago State.
The 21 offensive rebounds are the most since grabbing 24 against Michigan on March 10, 2013.
The Hoosiers attempted 67 shots in the game, a total IU surpassed four times last year.
USI opened the game by taking a 2-0 lead, but the Hoosiers went on 11-2 run over the next two minutes - led by a pair of thunderous dunks by Noah Vonleh.
USI also cut the lead to 44-42 early in the second half but the Hoosiers responded with a 18-7 run to cruise the victory.
Indiana committed just 12 team fouls in the game while drawing 23 from USI.
The Hoosiers also had the fast break working all night, scoring 23 points in transition to just two for USI.
Sophomore Kevin Yogi Ferrell led all scorers with 20 points (6-of-10 shooting from 3-point range) in 31 minutes. If the stats were to count, it would have been Ferrell's highest scoring game of his young career.
