No. 13 Indiana uses threes to blow out Bethune-Cookman 101-49

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) — Trayce Jackson-Davis had 21 points and six rebounds in 21 minutes and the No. 13 Indiana Hoosiers made 10 3-pointers in a 101-49 rout over Bethune-Cookman on Thursday night.

The Hoosiers (2-0) improved to 10-0 all-time against Southwestern Athletic Conference foes. Indiana’s victories this season have come by a total of 87 points.

Joe French had 11 points and Marcus Garrett added 10 to lead the Wildcats (0-2).

Indiana started sluggishly and Bethune-Cookman took advantage by grabbing its only lead of the game on Dylan Robertson’s alley-oop dunk five minutes into the game. But Miller Kopp answered with the first of his four 3s to make it 12-10, spurring a 20-2 run.

Indiana closed the half on a 15-4 spurt to make it 49-23 and sealed the outcome with a a 15-2 run early in the second half.

BIG PICTURE

Bethune-Cookman: The Wildcats have opened against two Big Ten schools, and it hasn’t been pretty. They lost by 31 points at Iowa earlier this week and now this. The schedule gets easier, but producing more than last season’s nine wins will require substantial improvement.

Indiana: The Hoosiers’ most glaring problem in recent seasons has the 3-point struggles. That sure wasn’t the case against Bethune-Cookman. They were 8 of 16 from beyond the arc in the first half and probably could have done better than the 10 of 24. If they replicate this performance against better opposition, Indiana could meet — or exceed — the preseason hype.

POLL IMPLICATIONS

There have been few surprises this first week, including Indiana. While the lopsided margins won’t hurt their ranking, it’s probably not going to help much, either.

Bethune-Cookman: Faces Florida National in Daytona Beach, Florida, on Monday.

Indiana: Gets a one-week break before visiting Xavier next Friday.
