BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) _ Eric Gordon scored 29 points and D.J.
White added 18 to help Indiana rally past Georgia Tech 83-79
Jamarcus Ellis scored 12 of his 15 points in the second half for
the 15th-ranked Hoosiers in their 21st straight regular-season win
at home. It also was the Big Ten's first victory in this year's Big
Georgia Tech (3-3) was led by Lewis Clinch with 18 points.
Anthony Morrow and Gani Lawal each added 17.
Indiana (5-1) started both halves sluggishly, committing five
turnovers in the first four minutes of the game and allowing
Georgia Tech to open the second half on a 9-0 run. That erased the
Hoosiers' 38-34 halftime lead, but they clawed back.
Lance Stemler's 3-pointer with 7:20 to go not only gave Indiana
a 60-58 lead, but also sparked an 11-2 run that made it 68-60.
Georgia Tech got as close as 68-64 and was within five with less
than a minute left, but the Hoosiers' late free-throw shooting
sealed the victory.
