IU scores exhibition victory

Sophomore point guard Kevin “Yogi” Ferrell led Indiana with 20 points as the Hoosiers beat Southern Indiana 83-68 in an exhibition game Saturday at Assembly Hall.

Ferrell, the lone returning starter, scored 14 of his points in the first half, but IU struggled at times.

The Hoosiers held a 38-29 lead at halftime and that dwindled to two points with 16:33 remaining.

Ferrell, senior forward Will Sheehey, graduate transfer Evan Gordon and freshmen Troy Williams and Noah Vonleh started for IU.

Williams posted a double-double with 10 points and 10 rebounds as well as three blocks, while Vonleh put up nine points and 12 rebounds in his first game.

Role players from last season showed they’re ready to contribute more this year.

Sophomores Hanner Mosquera-Perea and Jeremy Hollowell scored nine and 13 points for IU. Both had double-digit minutes and were the most used players off Tom Crean’s bench.

Still, the Hoosiers missed Cody Zeller, Victor Oladipo, Jordan Hulls and Christian Watford.

IU was 9 for 21 on three-pointers, and Ferrell had six of those makes.

The Hoosiers were also lackluster from the free-throw line, making just 18 of 31.

All but two scholarship players saw time for IU. Freshmen Devin Davis and Stan Robinson were held out because of injuries.

INDIANA TECH 85, WILBERFORCE 70: Rontray Chavis had 29 points and eight rebounds to lead the Warriors (1-0) in their opener.
