Indiana beat Oakland, 84-59, in its non-conference finale at Simon Skjodt Assembly Hall.
The Hoosiers (8-3) were spurred by Alexis Gassion’s 15 points and 20 rebounds. Those boards tied a single-game high in the Big Ten this year. Amanda Cahill produced 17 points and 10 rebounds, and Jenn Anderson and Tyra Buss each finished with 12.
Oakland (5-5) shot 9-of-29 from 3-point range, with four of those makes coming in the fourth quarter. The Golden Grizzlies were 5-of-22 through three quarters.
IU now heads south for a two-game tournament, the Florida Sunshine Classic, starting with Florida on Dec. 20. The Hoosiers will begin Big Ten play on Dec. 28 at Penn State.
