Dec. 4, 2013
Indiana Postgame Notes
This was the sixth meeting between the two programs and the first that was played on either school's home court
For the sixth time in eight games this season, IU had at least nine players score at least one point in a game
Indiana was 18-of-24 at the free throw line while Syracuse was 15-of-25, making it seven times in eight games that Indiana has made more free throws than its opponent.
The Hoosiers hauled in 12 offensive rebounds in the contest compared to 11 for Syracuse. Indiana has now collected more offensive rebounds than its opponent in all eight games this season
And the Hoosiers and Orange tied in total rebounds at 29, meaning IU has still not lost a rebounding battle this season
Trailing 10-0 at the 15:44 mark of the first half, Indiana was able to come all the way back to take a 27-26 lead with 3:28 left in the first half on a long 3-pointer by Kevin Yogi Ferrell, capping the run with a 13-3 spurt.
Freshman Noah Vonleh led Indiana with 17 points and six rebounds in addition to matching his season high with three blocked shots (Chicago State). It is also the sixth time this season that an IU player has had at least three blocked shots in a game.
Vonleh did a majority of his damage at the foul line, where he was 13-of-16 (both season-highs for an IU player).
The last time an IU player shot at least 16 free throws in a game was Jan. 17, 2010, when Verdell Jones III attempted 19 free throws against Minnesota.
Sophomore Kevin Yogi Ferrell went 4-of-7 from the 3-point line for his 12 points, marking the fifth time in eight games that he has made at least three 3-point field goals in a game.
Freshman Troy Williams closed with six points, two rebounds and two steals in his 23 minutes of play
Sophomore Jeremy Hollowell tallied five points and five rebounds
Graduate Student Evan Gordon played 24 minutes, posting two points, three rebounds and two assists
