Indiana 72, Cornell 57

Indiana handled the defending Ivy League Champions, pulling away in the second half.

Tom Pritchard was 7-for-7 from the field, despiting battling a thin 7-foot center and a wide 6-7 forward. And the Hoosiers improved from the free throw line, going 15-for-19. They were hitting just 64 percent heading into the game.

Ryan Wittman, the son of former Indiana star Randy, had a game high 28 points.


  1. It’s lucky for us that two of their starters were injured or we might be talking about another loss.

  2. You can never guess what could have happened.. so how about we just enjoy the victory and give credit to the team for winning another hard fought game. The team looked really good in certain spurts today. If only they could get their turnovers down to a reasonable number they could give the more talented teams trouble.

  3. I thought that, except for turnovers, the team played well. If they could just reduce those somewhat, they’d be that much better. If they had maybe 12 rather than 20 against Cornell, they could have won by 25 and been comfortably ahead most of the game.

    It’s nice to beat Cornell, but we’re going to have to grin and bear it through the next few games. This stretch will be a learning experience for the young players, that’s for sure, and that’s a good thing. Go Hoosiers!

  4. Just imagine, this group and all of the playing time they are getting and bringing in next years class and playing together another year. In two years this will be a fine team. If the recruiting keeps up, IU could really be back.
    Pritchard as a junior and senior will be very good. Story can be a player.
    This year is a true learning experience for the team, and the fans! Everyone needs to stay patient.
