Key Numbers for IU/Tennessee Tech

87-59: Tied for the most points the Hoosiers have scored in a single game this season. The last time they scored 87 was against Eastern Michigan and Arkansas State, over 4 weeks ago. 59 is the second lowest point total Indiana has given up in a single game this season.

28: The largest margin of victory for the Hoosiers this season and the largest since December 22nd of last year when Indiana took it to Austin Peay, 97-62.

20: A season-high point total for Josh Newkirk, as he easily played his best game of the season. He shot 6-9 from the field and 3-4 from beyond the arc. It seems like Josh was much more confident this game.

18-4: The statistic for points off turnovers for both sides. Compared to 29-7 the other night against Fort Wayne, I think it’s safe to say that Indiana made sure they turned this part of the game around.

14: The highest total points any Tennessee Tech player scored, the lowest by an opponent for Indiana all season.

13: The amount of Indiana players who were able to log minutes, the most on a single game this season.

11: The amount of players who scored for Indiana against TTU, the most on a single game this season. 7 of those players were able to score 8 or more. IU was able to share the ball a lot more compared to recent games.

7: The total points Tennessee Tech leading scorer, “Serbian Sugar,” was held to. Before last night, Aleksa Jugovic was averaging 14.3 points per game. Indiana held him to half his normal average, thanks to consistent pressure defense by Robert Johnson.

.82: The points per possession Indiana held the Golden Eagles to, their lowest on the season.

2007: The last time Tennessee Tech beat a Power Five conference opponent. They played valiantly, but despite their best start in 17 years, the Golden Eagles were no match for an angry Indiana Hoosier team.
