Indiana handles Laval 110-70

MONTREAL — Five players finished in double figures in Indiana’s 110-70 win over Laval University in the first game of the Hoosiers’ five-game Canadian trip.

Yogi Ferrell scored a game-high 22 points with six assists, Troy Williams added 21 points, James Blackmon Jr. scored 14 points, Robert Johnson had 12 points and Stanford Robinson added 11. Devin Davis narrowly missed a double-double, finishing with eight points and a game-high 16 rebounds.

Indiana played without Hanner Mosquera-Perea and Jeremiah April. Mosquera-Perea is not currently on the Canada trip while he deals with visa-related issues. April hurt his left ankle earlier in the week, but IU coach Tom Crean expects him to play at some point on the trip.

“Every game that Hanner doesn’t get here sets him back, but it doesn’t set us back,” Crean said of Mosquera-Perea. “They’re two different things. He’s done everything with us. This just came up last week. You wish he was out there getting a chance to play these extended minutes and things of that nature, but he’s not and it opens things up for somebody else. I think Troy was a product of that tonight. Troy played numerous spots offensively and defensively, and I think did a pretty good job and got better as the game went on.”

  1. Just curious on a general thought. What does everyone think about the college game going from halfs to quarters? I remember they experimented with this in Maui back in Bracey Wright’s freshman year. I don’t really have an opinion one way or another, but curious what everyone else thinks.

  2. Not that one can glean too much from stats at this point, I’m curious as to the turnover situation. How did we do with the ball?
