Sophomores scores team-leading 17 points

BLOOMINGTON – Yogi Ferrell remains Indiana’s offensive spark plug.The sophomore guard led the Hoosiers (10-5) with 17 points in Saturday’s 73-56 loss to No. 5 Michigan State (13-1). He added two assists and three steals.

Ferrell has scored in double figures in all 15 games this season, and 25 times in his career. Nine times this season he’s had at least 15 points, including four straight games. He averages a team-leading 17.6 points.

Here are his thoughts after Saturday’s game:“We still had more than want we wanted for turnovers. The thing about that, we didn’t get enough points off of their turnovers. We just had to take care of the ball.

“We made great runs, but we could never push over that hump.”“Their ability to get out and run, especially offensively and defensively. They do a great job of help-side defense. They especially packed the lane a lot. Those are the things they do well.”“I can’t remember what their turnovers were, but a lot of them were unforced, and that’s just the flow of the game. We’re OK with those kind of turnovers.

“But the ones where we’re just giving them the ball and they’re scoring and things like that, we’re not OK with. So they’re still learning. And we’re just going to learn to teach them every day.”
