Indiana 90, Bryant 42
Christian Watford had 15 points and nine rebounds as Indiana
routed winless Bryant 90-42 on Monday night – a win that may have
cost them much more than they earned.
In the Hoosiers’ (6-6) final Big Ten tuneup, they may have
sustained a devastating blow early in the second half when it
appeared freshman Maurice Creek landed awkwardly on his left leg
after being fouled. Creek, the Big Ten’s top freshman scorer at
17.6 points, left the court on a stretcher. There was no immediate
word on his condition.
Bryant (0-13) was led by Michael Chroney with 13 points and have
now lost two straight games by at least 36 points. The Bulldogs
have lost 15 in a row, dating to last season.
Indiana took control quickly, jumping to a 19-5 lead in the
first nine minutes, extended it to 45-17 at the half and never let
Bryant get close.
