Wednesday, December 5, 2018

(STATE COLLEGE, PA) - Archie Miller was thankful his team could turn a sluggish start into an early, unbeaten advantage in the Big Ten. Indiana's coach knows wins don't come easy in this league, especially for road teams that come out of the locker room flat like the Hoosiers did in their 64-62 win over Penn State on Tuesday night. Romeo Langford scored 15 of his 17 points in the first half and the Hoosiers overcame an early 9-0 deficit marred by turnovers, missed shots and missed rebounds to win their second in a row. Rob Phinisee and Al Durham added 12 points apiece, Juwan Morgan chipped in 10 points and Justin Smith grabbed nine rebounds for the Hoosiers (7-2, 2-0 Big Ten), who won their second in a row. Rasir Bolton led Penn State (4-4, 0-2) with 17 points, Myles Dread had 12 points and Lamar Stevens added 12 points and 10 rebounds for the Nittany Lions. Stevens had a final shot foiled by Phinisee, who ripped an inbounds pass away from him in the waning seconds before Smith recovered the ball to preserve the Hoosier's win.
