Hoosiers Out Quick

By David Scott - January 20, 2007

HARTFORD - The crowd was in this one at the tip and for a time (maybe 30 seconds), it was the best home court atmosphere the Huskies have benefited from yet this season.

But Indiana’s Armon Bassett quieted the crowd early and often with three 3-pointers in the games first four minutes. And a DJ White power dunk (and foul) with 14:39 left, made the score 18-6.

IU jumped out to 7-2, then 11-4 on its way to the 12 point cushion as UConn had some early game jitters and snafus in trying to get into its half court offense, including two quick turnovers (they now have four turns that have led to nine points).

. . . After a Roderick Wilmont 3-pointer with 15:18 left in the half made it 16-4, Jim Calhoun called a quick timeout, benched Thabeet (after bumping his center as he came off the court) and generally looked as miserable as he was at the Marquette loss a week and a half ago.

. . .The Hoosiers have started off in a man-to-man as have the Huskies.
