Indiana knocks off Carleton, 95-85

Indiana is now 2-1 on its foreign trip after beating Canadian national champion Carleton 95-85 Monday night.

When Indiana talked about the five-game Canadian foreign trip scheduled for this summer, the team they worried the most about was Carleton.

That’s Carleton as in the defending national champions. It’s a team that beat Wisconsin on a foreign trip last year and took Syracuse to overtime.

Since the 2000-01 season, Carleton has a record of 292-14.

None of that seemed to bother Indiana Monday night. Paced by 21 points from Yogi Ferrell, IU jumped out to a 27-11 lead after the first quarter and knocked off Carleton 95-85.

Indiana is now 2-1 on the foreign trip with two games to play. The Hoosiers will play Tuesday night at 7 p.m. against McGill.

Ferrell hit 6-of-7 shots from the field, made his only 3-pointer and hit 8-of-9 free throws. He also had five rebounds and four assists.

The Hoosiers shot 63.3 percent from the field in the first half and 60.8 percent overall for the game, hitting 31-of-51 shots.

James Blackmon Jr. had 19 points for the Hoosiers, Nick Zeisloft had 14, Devin Davis had 13 and Rob Johnson had 12.

Stanford Robinson suffered an ankle injury in the second quarter and was on the floor for several minutes. But he came back and played in the third quarter so the injury is not expected to be significant.

IU played for the third game in a row without any size in the lineup. Freshman Jeremiah April continues to nurse a sprained ankle and Hanner Mosquera-Perea has not played on the trip because of passport issues.
