Indiana edges past Nicholls in 79-66 win

Yogi Ferrell scored 16 points and had a season-high eight assists, and Indiana overcame mistakes and sloppy play in a 79-66 win over Nicholls State on Friday night.

Will Sheehey and Jeremy Hollowell added 14 points apiece for the Hoosiers (9-3), who bounced back from a disappointing loss to Notre Dame by putting the Colonels away with two notable runs.

Stanford Robinson scored eight points and fellow freshman Noah Vonleh added six with nine rebounds to help Indiana win its 37th consecutive nonconference game at Assembly Hall.

Dantrell Thomas scored 15 of his 24 points in the first half for the Colonels (3-5), who got as close as 12 points in the second half but were 4-of-16 from 3-point range.

Ferrell was charged with four of the Hoosiers' season-high 20 turnovers, 11 of which came in the first half. Indiana compensated by making 26 free throws in 35 attempts.
