IU-Chicago State live updates, 2nd half

FINAL SCORE: 97-59. Hoosiers win.

___

The 2nd half is underway. Not a whole lot has changed.

It’s 52-26 after the teams have traded baskets to start the final period. Eric Gordon, who draws more fouls than any play I’ve ever seen, just did exactly that and earned his sixth trip to the the charity stripe tonight. After hitting both, he’s a perfect 12-12. He’s got 18 points on the night.

After a nifty steal by Armon Bassett, D.J. White cleaned up Mike White’s miss under the basket and put it back for his 12th point of the night.

IU 60, Chicago State 30. The Hoosiers are out-rebounding the Cougars by an alarming 36-14 margin.

And on IU’s next offensive possession, D.J. White does what he’s been doing all night- capitalizing on three-point plays.

Holston answered at the opposite end with another three-pointer. 63-33.

It wouldn’t be an Indiana blowout win without an Eric Gordon signature dunk to finish a fast break, would it?

Gordon, off a steal, had one of the prettiest finishes of his short career with a behind the head drunk that wowed the Indiana fans. Surely it will find it’s way onto SportsCenter’s Top 10 plays later this evening.

The drubbing continues.

Two putbacks, one by DeAndre Thomas and one by Lance Stemler, and IU is now leading 80-42. There’s still eight minutes to go.

__

Despite the score, Kelvin Sampson is not happy. Not happy one bit.

As the Hoosiers ran to the bench for a time-out, he berated Brandon McGee. He’s continuing his grumbling now, during the under-8:00 timeout.

__

Holston has a nice outside touch. He’s the Cougars’ leading scorer with 16.

Most of the starters have been pulled, aside from Jamarcus Ellis, who despite only having four points has had a good all-around night.

Kyle Tabor is seeing some minutes here at the end, and with the score 86-51, we’ll probably see Adam Ahlfeld and Brett Finkelmeier pretty soon.

__

Brandon McGee finally gets into he mix with a three-pointer. Holsten, like he’s done all night, answers at the other end with a trey of his own.

Brett Finkelmeier is now in, replacing Ellis. IU 93, Chicago State 59.
