Bloomington, IN (Sports Network) - Victor Oladipo posted 14 points, six rebounds and six assists as top-ranked Indiana crushed Coppin State, 87-51.

Will Sheehey added 14 points, six rebounds and four assists while Christian Watford gave 10 points and seven rebounds for the Hoosiers (8-0), who have won every game this season by double-digits.

Taariq Cephas had 13 points and four rebounds while Michael Murray gave nine points and 12 boards for the Eagles (1-6), who have dropped their past two games.

Indiana had a sluggish start to the game and that allowed Coppin State to take a 9-2 lead 4 1/2 minutes in after Cephas capped the spurt with a bucket.

The Hoosiers, though, responded with a 12-2 run and took their first lead of the game when Watford buried a 3-pointer for a 14-11 advantage.

Indiana stayed on top from that point on and scored the final 11 points of the half with Remy Abell's 3-pointer near the break giving the team a 33-19 lead going into the locker room.

The Eagles had cut their deficit to nine points a couple of times in the second half, but Jordan Hulls' 3-pointer 3 1/2 minutes in put the Hoosiers up by 12 and it stayed in double-digits the rest of the game.

Indiana's lead reached as high as 37 as the team cruised to the finish line.
