No. 5 Indiana 93, Jacksonville 59
Jordan Hulls scored 17 of his season-high 20 points in the first half, leading No. 5 Indiana past visiting Jacksonville on Friday night.
The Hoosiers (12-1) will take a three-game winning streak into Big Ten play, which begins Monday at Iowa. Indiana also has won 29 consecutive non-league games at Assembly Hall.
Jacksonville (5-8) was led by Dylan Fritsch with 15 points and Jarvis Haywood with nine, but is now 0-4 this season against teams from the traditional power conferences.
Indiana wasn’t itself early, missing its first four shots and committing four turnovers in the first three minutes. But the Hoosiers eventually turned it around and used a 9-2 first-half spurt to start pulling away. Hulls followed that flurry with three straight 3-pointers, helping the Hoosiers take a 48-33 halftime lead.
Indiana never let up in the second half, extending the lead to as much as 42.
