Morgan leads Hoosiers to second-half rally, 76-62 win over UC-Davis
BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) — Juwan Morgan poured in 31 points and grabbed 10 rebounds and Indiana survived a scare from UC-Davis, using a late second-half run to pull away from the Aggies to take a 76-62 victory on Friday night.
Morgan was wildly efficient from all over the court, finishing 13 of 18, including 5 of 7 from 3-point range. Romeo Langford added 20 points.
For more than 34 minutes, the Aggies held the lead, pushing the advantage to as many as 14 points.
After cutting the deficit to six points, Indiana went on a 14-0 run that flipped it to an eight-point lead the Hoosiers never surrendered. Over the final 8:27, they outscored the Aggies 28-8.
TJ Shorts III had 16 points and seven assists for UC-Davis.
UC-Davis: The Aggies will attempt to recapture that magic they found over the first 30 minutes in order to turn around a 1-6 start to the season.
Indiana: The Hoosiers will look to continue to ride Morgan and Langford as they get healthy in time to start Big Ten play.
UC-Davis gets nearly a week to regroup before returning home to face Northern Arizona in Thursday, November 29.
Indiana: The Hoosiers head to Cameron Indoor Stadium in hopes of handing No. 1 Duke a second straight loss.
