Freshman records second straight double-double

Wednesday, November 13, 2013 12:01 am
BLOOMINGTON – Indiana freshman Noah Vonleh continues to play to the basketball hype.The 6-10 center had 17 points and 11 rebounds in Tuesday night's 73-72 win over LIU Brooklyn. That followed the 11 points and 14 rebounds he had in the season-opening win over Chicago State.

That gives him averages of 14.0 points and 12.5 rebounds.

The last Hoosier freshman to record consecutive double doubles was Christian Watford during the 2010-11 season.

IU overcame 27.5 percent first-half shooting behind veteran swingman Will Sheehey, who scored 15 second half points and finished with a game-high 19.

Vonleh gave his thoughts after the game:“It's a great experience. It's a learning experience just knowing how to handle situations like this, how to slow things down and keep getting better."“We were rushing shots, but the ball movement got better in the flow of the game. That's why we came up with the W.”"We kicked it to Will, he had the baseline open and he's drive it. He'd either score, get fouled or get back for an open shot. That was a pretty big part of it.

“He kept doing the little things – rebounding, playing defense, talking on defense, executing the plays correctly.”
