BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) - Indiana forward OG Anunoby will be out indefinitely after injuring his ankle late in Wednesday night's victory over No. 3 North Carolina.
    
Anunoby scored 16 points and had five rebounds as the 13th-ranked Hoosiers (5-1) pulled their second upset of the season, 76-67. Indiana also defeated No. 3 Kansas on opening night in Hawaii.
    
But Anunoby was injured when he appeared to land awkwardly following a dunk with 1:36 left in the game. He needed help to get from the court to the locker room, and afterward coach Tom Crean said the injury was still being evaluated - though it appeared to be a high ankle sprain.
    
Anunoby is averaging 12.5 points and 6.0 rebounds, both fourth-highest on the team.
    
Indiana returns to action Friday night against SIU-Edwardsville.
