The Lancers scored the next five points, but never got any closer as Indiana slowly pulled away and built a 54-30 cushion at the break.

Gordon scored 13 and Bassett added 12 -- each connecting on a trio of threes -- in the opening 20 minutes for the Hoosiers, who shot a blistering 64.5 percent during the first half.
