Will Sheehey scored a career-high 21 points off the bench as Indiana pulled away for a 75-59 home victory over in-state rival Butler Sunday.
The Hoosiers (6-0) suffered through their worst shooting night of the season, hitting just 40 percent from the floor-but they made the shots that counted most, nailing 8-of-13 from 3-point range. Sheehey hit three of four from behind the arc.
Butler (3-3) was within three points, 40-37, before Indiana took command with an 11-2 run to stretch its lead to 12 with 9:29 remaining. The Bulldogs could get no closer than eight after that flurry.
Cody Zeller finished with 16 points and eight rebounds for the Hoosiers, while Jordan Hulls added 14 points.
Chrishawn Hopkins had 19 points to lead the Bulldogs, who shot just 38 percent overall and 28 percent on 3-pointers. Khyle Marshall chipped in with 16 points in defeat.
