Second half surge helps IU crush Grand Canyon

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) - Indiana put together one of its best second halves of the season on Saturday night, outscoring Grand Canyon 52-35 in the second half in a 94-66 victory for the Hoosiers.
   
After shooting 7-20 from behind the arch in the first half, Indiana (8-2) came out of halftime intent on getting the ball inside. The Hoosiers started the second half on a 12-4 run, spurred by eight points around the rim and seven points from freshman James Blackmon Jr.
   
Blackmon, who leads all freshmen in the country in scoring, did it all, grabbing six boards and dishing out three assists to go with his team-high 18 points.
   
Grand Canyon (4-6) was led by guards Dewayne Russell and Royce Woolridge who scored 16 and 18 points respectively.
