    BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) - Christian Watford scored 24 points and Jordan Hulls had 18, leading Indiana to an 88-60 win over Florida Gulf Coast in the season-opener for both teams Friday night.

    Indiana (1-0) has now won 13 straight season-openers and 26 consecutive home openers.

    The Eagles (0-1) were led by Anthony Banks, who had 16 points, but dropped to 1-10 all-time against BCS schools and 0-4 all-time against the Big Ten.

    Florida Gulf Coast hung around for a while, closing to nine early in the second half and getting within 56-44 with 15:50 to go.

    But Watford answered with six straight points and Indiana never let the Eagles get close again.

    Indiana connected on 14 of 28 shots from 3-point range, and Watford finished with five rebounds and four assists.
