Indiana 100, Western Carolina 52


Kelvin Sampson thanks the fans at Assembly Hall for showing up.

Eric Gordon says: “My back feels fine, 95 or 100 percent. I don’t feel any pain at all.”

Just in case you couldn’t tell from his 26 points.

D.J. White said he set a goal prior to the season to average a double-double. After recording double digits in points and rebounds for the sixth straight game, he’s close: 15.5 ppg, 9.3 rpg.

Probably the most intriguing post-game storyline involves Eli Holman, the freshman center who has an injured left wrist.

Indiana coach Kelvin Sampson said after the game that he didn’t know the long-term outlook for Holman, who didn’t dress Saturday and had his wrist in a brace. Sampson said team doctors won’t be able to accurately diagnose Holman until the swelling goes down. They don’t think Holman has any broken bones but they fear ligament damage.

Holman, however, told fans after the game that he will have surgery Wednesday on his ligaments and will miss the rest of the season.

Confronted with what Eli was saying to fans, an IU spokesman said that the team’s medical staff did not expect Holman to have surgery Wednesday.
