Hoosiers pull away from Stony Brook 90-74

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. —  Kevin "Yogi" Ferrell knew what the Hoosiers needed Sunday evening.

They had to crank up the pace, turn up the pressure and start putting some distance between themselves and Stony Brook.

The point guard took care of all three in the second half. He finished with 24 points, five rebounds and six assists and teammate Noah Vonleh became the first Indiana player to post four straight double-doubles since 2007-08 to lead the Hoosiers to a 90-74 victory.

"He is continually finding what the game is giving teammates and what the game is giving him, and he's playing a high level of defense," coach Tom Crean said. "He's figuring out how to win every possession."

Indiana needed Ferrell, the only returning starter from last season's team, to become a big-time leader this season and over the past week, he's fit the role perfectly.

Ferrell was one of the catalysts in Tuesday's one-point victory over LIU-Brooklyn, then scored a career-high 26 points in a rout of Samford on Friday and followed that Sunday with perhaps an even more impressive all-around game — hitting the 20-point mark for just the second time in his career and in back-to-back games.

Vonleh had 18 points and 15 rebounds, closing on D.J. White, who had five straight double-doubles. Crean contended it was actually a triple double since the coaching staff credited the star freshman with 15 deflections. Evan Gordon came off the bench to score 12 points and Jeremy Hollowell added 10 points and three blocks as the Hoosiers improved to 4-0 for the fourth consecutive season.

Indiana could have made this one a whole lot easier — by shooting better from the free-throw line, where they were 30 of 49.

But they still did enough.

"The ball had to move today, the bodies had to move. We needed to get the ball back in Yogi's hands or get it inside," Crean said. "It wasn't a perfect game by any stretch, not even close. But what we did is we figured out that the intensity and the energy level cannot wane."

    Two decades after NASCAR started running at Indianapolis Motor Speedway, the crowds have thinned considerably. It's probably no reflection on the sport's massive following, which stretches from coast to coast, but it surely doesn't NASCAR's image help when the cameras pan across all of those empty seats.
