No. 12 Indiana beats Penn Condition 88-82

Jordan Hulls hit seven of No. 12 Indiana’s season-high 16 3-point area goals to assist the Hoosiers snap a 16-game Large Ten road losing streak and hang on to have an 88-82 victory over Penn Condition on Sunday.

Hulls, a 6-feet guard, scooted round the perimeter all game for open looks and handle with 28 points for Indiana (15-1, 3-1).

Lower eight points with 1:22 to visit, the Nittany Lions (9-8, 1-3) forced two straight turnovers to focus on a late go to get within 84-82 with 21 seconds left on two free throws by Matt Glover

But Matt Roth hit two foul shots and Penn Condition skipped a final-gasp 3.

Cheered on with a healthy sprinkling of fans putting on Indiana red-colored, the Hoosiers won a normal-season road conference game the very first time since a 67-61 win at Penn Condition on Jan. 21, 2010.

Penn Condition fans reserved a few of their greatest cheers for brand new football coach Bill O’Brien, who received a standing ovation after being introduced at center court throughout an initial-half timeout. A chant of “We are … Penn Condition!’’ echoed with the stands because he exchanged handshakes with students.

Largest, the Nittany Lions were pumped up, too, diving all around the court for loose balls and elbowing for rebounds underneath the boards.

Still it wasn’t enough to beat the nation’s best 3-point shooting team.

Ross Travis’ two foul shots cut charge to 77-70, but things looked bleak for Penn Condition after point guard Tim Frazier fouled by helping cover their 1:34 left scrambling for any loose ball.

Frazier carried out with 21 points while Jermaine Marshall added 20.

The Nittany Lions still clawed back without Frazier, but Hulls and Roth combined to visit 8 for 8 in the free throw line within the final 33 seconds.

Hulls, 4th within the nation in 3-point shooting (55 percent) hit 7 of 9 from lengthy range, including 5 of 6 within the first half, giving Penn State’s pads fits.

The Hoosiers clarified in the perimeter nearly every time Penn Condition got within 4 or 5 points. Coach Tom Crean’s club finished a blistering 16 of 24 from behind the arc (66 percent).

The partisan Penn condition crowd got so worried about Indiana’s hot shooting that fans with each other gasped when Roth hit the very first of his two consecutive 3s to place the Hoosiers up 11 points late in the overall game. Roth carried out with 22 points on 5-of-6 shooting, all from behind the arc.

Christian Watford and Cody Zeller both added 10 points for Indiana, that has won three straight.
