About 10,000 fans have filled into Assembly Hall this afternoon for what seems like another Hoosier blowout. I’m assuming there’s some hangovers among the IU student section after last night’s victory on the football field.
Nothing really surprising in the first half. Eric Gordon leads the way with 13 points and has actually missed a few three-pointers. Armon Bassett is playing particularly well. His 12 points doesn’t do justice to the kind of job he’s doing at point guard, finding holes in the Lancer defense and kicking the ball out for open looks for Gordon and Co.
Lance Stemler also enjoyed a moderately successful first period. After being booed in last Monday’s victory over Chattanooga, Stemler has hit two jumpers (the last right before the buzzer) and got a nice cheer from the IU fans. Good to see Stemler finding his confidence again.
