Indiana tops North Florida 89-68

The Hoosiers cruised to their seventh win of the season Saturday night.

Indiana got back on track Saturday night was an easy 89-68 win over North Florida at Assembly Hall.

The Hoosiers (7-2) were coming off a disappointing second-half performance against Syracuse in the ACC/Big Ten Challenge.

There are a lot of offensive numbers that look good for Indiana from this one. Senior Evan Gordon had his best game in an Indiana uniform, scoring 15 points on 7-of-9 shooting. He also had four rebounds and two assists in 19 minutes.

Freshman Noah Vonleh recorded his sixth double-double in his first nine college games, going for 13 points and 11 rebounds. Vonleh also had four steals, all of which came in the first half.

Yogi Ferrell added 14 points and seven assists, Jeremy Hollowell had 12 points and three rebounds, and Hanner Mosquera-Perea had eight points in eight minutes off the bench.

Sophomore guard Austin Etherington made his first two 3-pointers of the season, finishing with six points. It was the first game since Etherington was ejected from Tuesday's game for pushing guard Trevor Cooney on a fastbreak.

Freshman guard Stanford Robinson was also as impressive as he has been during the regular season. Robinson had five points, seven rebounds and two assists in 16 minutes off the bench.

The Hoosiers shot 47 percent from the field (32-of-68), and 35 percent from beyond the arc (6-of-17).

North Florida (5-6) stayed close at times in the first half thanks to the player of freshman guard Dallas Moore, but the Ospreys' lack of defense made it hard for them to keep the margin under 20 points. Moore finished with a game and career-high 27 points.
