Indiana uses strong second half to top Penn State

Cody Zeller had 18 points on 7-of-8 ranked Indiana to a 73-54 win over Penn State at Assembly Hall.

Jordan Hulls scored all 14 of his points in the second half for the Hoosiers (16-4, 4-4 Big Ten), who snapped a three-game losing streak.

Their last win came at Penn State on January 8, when Indiana made a season- high 16 three-pointers on a season-best 66.7 percent shooting from beyond the arc in an 88-82 victory.

On Sunday, the Hoosiers used a dominant second half to subdue the Nittany Lions (10-11, 2-6), who wore black bands to honor Joe Paterno. The former Penn State football coach passed away hours before the contest.

The Indiana crowd also had a moment of silence in honor of the iconic figure.

Tim Frazier led Penn State with a game-high 21 points.
