IU Hangs With Zags For 20 Minutes But Not 40

June 18, 2010 Updated Dec 7, 2008 at 1:00 AM EST

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Josh Heytvelt scored 17 points and Jeremy
Pargo added 13, as No. 5 Gonzaga survived pesky Indiana for a 70-54
victory Saturday - the first basketball game played at Lucas Oil
Stadium.
It wasn't supposed to be close between one of the West's
traditional powers and a rebuilding program that had only eight
scholarship players available for the game.
Clearly, though, Gonzaga (6-0) wasn't itself at the Hall of Fame
Showcase. The Zags were shooting just 31 percent midway through the
first half and finished the half 5-of-12 from the free-throw line.
They didn't make a 3-pointer for nearly 28 minutes, and Heytvelt
spent time battling foul trouble.
The result: Indiana (4-4) kept it close but couldn't overcome 25
turnovers or 30.4 percent shooting. Devan Dumes had 15 points for
the Hoosiers, who lost for the third time in 12 days to a ranked
team.
