mkillian247 on twitter..... I say a lot of stuff you wont care about.
Shot clock violation followed by a Hulls three. Fans excited. Then not anymore. It's a non-student crowd tonight.
deep from Hulls
Oladipo block gets them back up. IU's tempo starting to break Jacksonville. Cliff Warren wants a timeout.
Under-8 timeout finds Indiana up 26-17 and in control. Or as much control as it has been this half, which has been uglier than homemade sin. But IU is up, and comfortable. Just close your eyes tight, click your heels together and say "There's no place like Big Ten season! There's no place like Big Ten season!"
Jacksonville has done a pretty good job of limiting IU's fast-break chances. Hulls made a good pass to Abell for what could have been a bucket, but JU defenders caught up and blocked Abell's shot. We've seen that a couple times.

This game is frustrating. We are not playing well and Jim Burr is reffing!
That under-basket move from Hanner Perea is evidence of a growing offensive game. Not something he could do so smoothly a year ago. Foul will have Hulls shooting two on the double-bonus after the under-4 timeout, with IU leading 35-24.
I did like that move
Jim Burr is running up and down the floor. What he does only sometimes qualifies as reffing.
Thank you Jordan Hulls.
Hulls banks in a 3-pointer, now has 17 points.
IU has 2.3 seconds (or maybe a little bit more) to get a shot off before halftime, up 45-33. This OOB play might be the most useful teaching moment of the night.
No idea if there was a foul there, but Jordan Hulls' personal run at the end of the half, which left him with 17 points, means Indiana has a 48-33 lead at halftime.
Hoosiers have not played well at all, which might just be a Christmas hangover, or it might be concerning heading into Big Ten play. Either way, they lead a bad team by 15 at the half.
One a side not at halftime..... Its snowing again in Evansville.
IU was up by nine with 2:34 left, then Hulls' red-hot shooting streak helps IU increase its lead to 15 heading into halftime, 48-33.
IU started very ugly, but was able to shoot 47 percent in the first half (hitting eight of its final 10 shots). The Hoosiers are also right on their season average from behind the arc, despite starting 1-for-6 from that range. They finished with a 42 percent average (8-for-19) from 3-point range.
The second half has not offered much more inspiration, but IU is still in a commanding position.
This might be the slowest half ever. But the club can't even handle me right now.
Under-16 timeout brought to you by Jordan Hulls' first missed shot in his last eight tries. Hulls has 20, IU leads by 16, so you do the math there. Watford and Zeller have combined for 11 points and seven rebounds so far, though Zeller has obviously been in foul trouble.
Hulls misses a three with a little over 15 minutes left in the game, and that's his first miss of any kind (from the field or free-throw line) since the 18:30 mark in the first half.
IU still up 57-41.
Perea playing well again tonight. Not trying to do too much, showing a good understanding of what he can offer.
Perea getting more and more involved. He takes a charge at one end, then gets fouled and makes both shots on the other end. IU leads 63-41 with 13 minutes left.
Usually when Zeller looks a little off, his number still dazzle. Not so tonight. He has six points (1-for-4 from the field), four rebounds, four fouls and three turnovers. He heads to the bench.
Someone has to work with Chuck Crabb on the pronunciation of "Perea." IU now up 23 with 12 minutes left.
