IU trails Temple at halftime

DAYTON, Ohio – Indiana trails Temple 29-26 at halftime in the third round of the NCAA tournament in University of Dayton Arena.

The Hoosiers were hurt by having limited minutes from forward Cody Zeller and guard Jordan Hulls as well as the incredible first-half performance of Owls guard Khalif Wyatt.

Wyatt scored 20 points in the opening half on 8-of-14 shooting. The rest of Temple was 4 of 20 from the floor.

Zeller was limited to 10 minutes in the first half after picking up two fouls early, and Hulls only played six minutes and was taken to the locker room with 6:58 to play in the half. Hulls appeared to injure his shoulder after a collision with a Temple player with 12:23 to play in the half.

Indiana's offense was out of sorts without those two out. The Hoosiers took a 20-11 lead with 10:21 to play but only managed six more points the rest of the half.

Wyatt began to dominate the offense with the Owls down by nine, scoring nine straight points to tie the game at 20 with 6:09 left in the first half.

Temple took a 26-24 lead on a dunk by Anthony Lee with 2:36 left in the first half, and after two free throws by Indiana's Christian Watford, Scootie Randall hit one free throw and Rahlir Hollis-Jefferson knocked down a jumper to give the Owls the advantage at halftime.

Watfford, Zeller and Victor Oladipo each have six points for IU, which is losing the battle on the boards 21-18 and has given up eight offensive rebounds.
