The Indiana Hoosiers got back to their winning ways in a big way on Wednesday night, beating Mount St. Mary’s 93-54. It was an all around dominant performance for a team that is trying to forget about Saturday’s overtime loss to Butler.

The Hoosiers  had five players in double figures and were led by Cody Zeller and Will Sheehey’s team high 16-points. Indiana also outrebounded Mount St. Mary’s 41-18.

Before tip off Indiana announced back up guard Maurice Creek would be out indefinitely with an undisclosed injury to his right foot, he watched from the bench as another player made his return. Derek Elston saw action for the first time this season, he blocked a 3-point attempt and scored 2 points on a jumper late in the game. Elston had missed the past 10 games recovering from knee surgery.

Indiana improves to 10-1 on the season as they inch closer to Big Ten play. The Hoosiers host Florida Atlantic Atlantic on Friday, the second to last game before their conference opener.
