Despite a Jekyll and Hyde-type performance Monday night, Indiana earned its sixth straight win of the young season, 88-75 over Louisiana Tech.
The Hoosiers appeared to be on cruise control through the first half, shooting 61% from the field and 46 percent from 3-point range to lead by 16 at the break. But the final 20 minutes was a different story as they struggled on both offense and defense.
Indiana hit just 8 of 25 field goals in the second half (32%) and was 0–6 from behind the arc. Still, the Bulldogs only got as close as 10 points to the Hoosiers—twice—before time ran out.
Trayce Jackson-Davis led Indiana with 21 points and 11 rebounds. Al Durham added 18 points and Devonte Green came off the bench to score 16. Joey Brunk pulled in 8 rebounds for the Hoosiers.
Louisiana Tech (4-2) was paced by Amorie Archibald with 24 points, and Isaiah Crawford had 14.
