No. 5 Indiana vs. Penn State final score: Hoosiers win second straight on road, 74-51

Patrick Smith

Indiana already has its second conference road win this year after only winning three Big Ten road games last season.

The No. 5 Indiana Hoosiers are now just one Big Ten road win away from equaling last season's total as they easily handled the Penn St. Nittany Lions, 74-51, on Monday night.

Senior forward Christian Watford led the Hoosiers with 16 points and added eight rebounds as Indiana won its second straight conference game on the road. Sophomore forward Cody Zeller had 15 points and senior guard Jordan Hulls added 14 points as Indiana jumped out to a 17-point lead at halftime and never looked back.

As Crimson Quarry pointed out, road wins in the Big Ten haven't come along easily for Indiana under the Tom Crean era. Last year, the Hoosiers only won three of their nine road games during conference play.

Indiana struggled to put Iowa away on New Year's Eve for their first conference victory of the season, but Penn State just didn't have the firepower to keep up. Sophomore forward Ross Travis led the Nittany Lions with 14 points as the team struggled, collectively shooting just 31.7 percent from the field.
