Bloomington, IN (Sports Network) - Indiana played like the top-ranked team in
the nation Tuesday, as the Hoosiers manhandled the No. 14 North Carolina Tar
Heels, 83-59, in front of a frenzied Assembly Hall crowd.
The premier matchup of the ACC/Big Ten Challenge turned out to be a one-sided
affair when the Hoosiers (7-0) extended its nine-point halftime lead by
scoring 22 of the first 25 points after the break.
Cody Zeller dominated to the tune of 20 points, nine rebounds and four blocks,
and the super sophomore got plenty of help from his teammates. Victor Oladipo
and Will Sheehey netted 19 points apiece and Jordan Hulls filled the stat
sheet with 13 points, eight assists and seven rebounds in the blowout.
James Michael McAdoo was held scoreless in the second half and finished with
10 points on 4-of-15 shooting for the inexperienced Tar Heels (5-2), who shot
just 38 percent from the field and 6-of-14 from the foul line in their second
loss in three games.
