Indiana won a third-straight game for the first time under coach Tom Crean, defeating Mississippi Valley State 71-54 on Tuesday.

Once again, Christian Watford led the way with 18 points and nine rebounds in 29 minutes of action.

But it’s a team game, and two numbers — 32 points off turnovers, and 32 points from the bench — stand out.

Indiana forced 23 Mississippi Valley State turnovers, to its own 17.

Freshmen Will Sheehey and Victor Oladipo led the bench with nine points each.

The Hoosiers are 3-0 despite getting combined 4-of-18 shooting, 1-of-8 from beyond the arc, from Maurice Creek and Verdell Jones during Tuesday’s game.

Only one player scored in double figures.
