    Indiana Game Notes
    Indiana vs. Northeastern
    12-22-08

    • The loss was Indiana's first at Assembly Hall this season and the first non-conference loss for the Hoosiers since a 68-63 win by Connecticut on Jan. 26, 2008. IU is now 183-19 (.906) against non-conference opponents in the building all-time.

    The Hoosiers are now 2-1 against Northeastern all-time and lost for the first time against a Colonial Athletic Association foe, dropping to 10-1 in program history.

    • Nick Williams' layup just four seconds into the game marked the fastest basket scored by the Hoosiers in a game this season. It is the third time this year that Williams has scored Indiana's first field goal, and IU is now 2-1 when he scores first.

    • The Hoosiers won the battle of the boards against the Huskies, 31-26, the fourth time that IU has outrebounded the opposition.

    Tom Pritchard posted his fourth career double-double, scoring 12 points and grabbing a career-high 14 rebounds. Nine of his boards in the game came on the defensive glass, which was also a career best. All four of the freshman's double-doubles have come on Branch McCracken Court, where he is averaging 16.4 points and 10.4 boards on the season.

    • Indiana opened the game on a 12-3 run, shooting 5-for-7 out of the gate over the game's first five minutes.
