At the half

Gordon drives. And squints.

Indiana leads 34-28, mostly because it did a much better job of rebounding in the second half. The teams are now tied with 17 each.

Gordon leads the Hoosiers with 10 points, but the surprise of the night is that Jamarcus Ellis has seven points. Looks like he’s been given the green light to try to score tonight.

D.J. White has a team-high six rebounds, but also has two of the team’s four blocks (Ellis and Gordon have the other).

Bassett’s got four assists, and the Hoosiers shot 54.2 percent in the first half while the Salukis hit just 41.9 percent.

Indiana needs to withstand what figures to be a hard push by the Salukis. They’ve been really poised so far.

Any thoughts?
