Indiana got back into the win column on Monday night with a 112-70 victory over Alcorn State.

Up big to start the second half, fans inside Assembly Hall started to get into the Christmas spirt. As Alcorn State junior guard Malachy Onwudiegwu stepped to the line to shoot two free throws with 14:15 remaining, the Indiana student section began singing "Jingle Bells." The Christmas carol was enough of a distraction to force Onwudiegwu to miss both free throws.

All five starters for Indiana finished in double figures, led by James Blackmon Jr. with a career-high 33 points.
