Irish lead Hoosers at halftime

INDIANAPOLIS – Notre Dame shot 51.5 percent from the floor, Irish center Garrick Sherman had 13 points and the Irish lead Indiana 47-42 at halftime in Bankers Life Fieldhouse.

Sherman has put together a great game against freshman sensation Noah Vonleh, who was averaging a double-double entering Saturday. The 6-foot-11 senior bullied Vonleh in the post after four quick points. Jerian Grant, after an 0-of-5 game in a 73-69 loss to North Dakota State at home, had 13 points and five assists on 4-of-8 shooting in the first half.

IU senior forward Will Sheehey has kept the Hoosiers in the game. He has a game-high 18 points and is 7 for 10 from the floor. Graduate transfer Evan Gordon added eight points on a pair of 3-pointers to help IU stay within striking distance despite the hot shooting of the Irish.

The Hoosiers started cold but finished the half shooting 50 percent thanks to strong efforts from the senior duo. IU pulled within four with a minute left in the first half, and a slam dunk by Hanner Mosquera-Perea off a scoop pass from Jeremy Hollowell cut the lead to two and got a very pro-IU crowd going.

But Notre Dame got the ball back for an out-of-bounds play with six seconds left, and Grant freed himself for a 3-pointer to end the half.
