Indiana 94, Evansville 73

Verdell Jones scored 17 points and Christian Watford had 15,

leading Indiana to a 94-73 victory at Evansville Wednesday


It was the Hoosiers’ second true road victory in coach Tom

Crean’s four seasons and their most lopsided win outside of

Bloomington, Ind., since a 24-point rout at Ball State on Dec. 31,

2005. Indiana (3-0) has now won three straight by 20 or more points

for the first time since December 2007.

Evansville (1-1) was led by Colt Ryan and Kenneth Harris, who

each scored 17 points in front of a sellout crowd at the brand-new

Ford Center.

It was never close.

Indiana jumped to a 7-0 lead, led 42-23 with 5:27 left in the

first half and the Aces couldn’t get closer than 21 in the second
