Starters as usual for IU: Zeller, Oladipo, Hulls, Ferrell and Watford.

Need the energy early tonight. Do not give a team like this hope.
mkillian247 on twitter..... I say a lot of stuff you wont care about.
McCarthy is watching the game at my apartment tonight. This means nothing to you, but here you go anyway.
You mean like last year?
To be fair: Pat Chambers-coached teams never go away.
Is good ol Jimmy worse that I dont like either of them
IU attacking the rim early.
Enjoying a TV that is much larger than mine. And also much less broken than mine at my apartment.
Zeller is so impressive..... obvious post!
Watford working it offensively inside and out. He scored inside, scored outside, then drove and kicked a pass out to Ferrell. Ferrell missed, but still a good play from Watford. Next possession, Watford drives inside and gets a bucket to go while getting fouled.
Seems like Watford has started aggressively and strong early on and then has faded. We'll see how it goes for him tonight.
IU leads 10-3, eight points from Watford.
Christian Watford has eight points as Indiana leads 10-3 at the under-16 timeout. Hoosiers dictating the pace like they want to early on.
My E button is going out so if some words dont make sens find somewhere to put an E in it and it might make sense.
Watford's energy is excellent tonight. As good as it's been early in a game all year.
It's now 15-3. That pretty much sums it up.
Fairly confident Sheehey is hated by all big ten refs and players
PSU's Ross Travis beats Oladipo out for a rebound, and he has looked good on the boards. He has also thrown an elbow and missed a couple shots on offense, but he's looked good rebounding.
IU isn't screwing around with the slow start tonight. Hoosiers being careful with the ball, knocking down shots.
Penn State goes 3-2 zone. It fails.
Penn State into double-digits 10 minutes into the game. IU hit double-digits about four minutes in, if I remember correctly. IU up 28-11. #iubb
Hollowell commits an offensive foul.
I think Crean has learned from the Butler game. Needs to keep going to the press early. Will be huge against Wisconsin
Not sure that was a charge or a block.
Huge against a lot of teams. Few will want to run with IU.
Can't understate Watford's energy difference tonight. It's huge, and the reason he's got 14 so far.
Hulls with 10 thus far in the first, Watford with 14 so far. After a long PSU possession that ended with a basket and a little PSU fan energy, Hulls hits a three and Zeller dunks.
IU leads 39-23 with four minutes left in the half.
