He's really active tonight. Needs to get those forearms a little stronger so he can squeeze some of those rebounds and control them, but a nice showing thus far.

FAU into a 2-3 zone ... Hulls hits a deep three. OK then.

A Yogi Ferrell foul brings us to the Under-4 timeout, with FAU about to shoot 1-and-1. IU up 44-19. Cody Zeller has been pretty dang hard for the Owls to stop tonight, as he already has 13 points and four rebounds, but he's not at all alone. Indiana is owning the stat sheet pretty much everywhere right now.
3:43 left in the half.
An absolutely TEXTBOOK screen-and-roll from Ferrell to Zeller leads to a blocking foul.
Indiana now working on its press. It does not go so well the first time.
Mike Jarvis tech, not sure which he was arguing, whether Oladipo's shot was a two or three, or whether it had gone out of bounds. Whatever his argument, he lost.
Peter Jurkin's first statistical contribution nearly a rebound, but he fumbles it out of bounds.
Jurkin drops the first rebound he has a chance at...I guess that problem hasn't been fixed.

The Mayans may have missed on the end of the world, but a Jordan Hulls' air ball isn't far from it.
Not a lot going on right now, as this game stumbles toward halftime. IU up 55-23.
Decent footwork from Jurkin, but he doesn't get the block. Needs a little more strength in that situation.
Anyway, it's halftime. Indiana up 55-25. Zeller has 15, Oladipo 12 and six rebounds. Hoosiers shooting 61.8 percent from the floor, forced 10 turnovers and outrebounding FAU 20-11.
Greg Gantt leads the Owls with 14.
This is basically what we expected from tonight. IU dominating everywhere. IU's shooting 61.8 percent from the field and has made all eight free throws. IU is outrebounding FAU 20-12, but perhaps the biggest difference is in the turnover battle. IU has forced 10 turnovers and has scored almost every time, totaling 18 points off turnovers. FAU has only managed three points off six turnovers.
Zeller and Watford are owning the paint, and Zeller leads with 15 points, while Oladipo leads with six rebounds.
Tepid start to the second half. IU has taken its foot off just a bit, and FAU is still wildly overmatched.
FAU big man Dragan Sekelja is now on four personal fouls, after committing two quick ones this half.
And now Sekelja is done. No idea why Jarvis hasn't pulled him yet. But he's fouled out after trying to take a charge inside the circle. Zeller to the line to shoot two more.
We're at the under-16 timeout with IU up 64-31.
How many more of these do we have to do?
This game is slowing down bigtime. Indiana already into the bonus, and Jarvis is barking so much I'm not sure he's going to last this game.
How many more of whats?
Some good, energetic minutes again from Hanner Perea. Starting to see what Tom Crean likes in him.
And then he fumbles an entry pass while thinking about the wide open, two-handed dunk he was about to execute. Still raw. Under-12 timeout comes as a result of alternating possession, which will keep the ball with IU. 71-36 Hoosiers with 11:51 to go.
Perea is looking like that seventh starter or whatever Crean has labeled him. He had his shot blocked, then recovered to pursue the ball, then dished to Watford for the basket. He did drop a pass on that last possession, but he's looked the best he's looked thus far through three games.
Hoosiers getting a little bit sloppy. Methinks they can smell Christmas dinner a little bit too strongly, and Tom Crean will have a chat with them as he calls a 30-second timeout. IU still up 73-41, 10 minutes flat to go.
Games where I would rather watch a scrimmage
I predict Yogi Ferrell will score 35 points in the next nine minutes to give the people the free Qdoba they desire.
One and one-quarter.
