(INDIANAPOLIS) - Senior All-American center Trayce Jackson-Davis scored nine of a game-high 17 points for No. 12 Indiana, which closed the first half on a 22-6 run and cruised to an 86-56 Hoosier Classic victory over Miami (Ohio) on Sunday. The Hoosiers were clinging to a 21-20 lead with 7:43 remaining when Jackson-Davis threw down an alley-oop dunk. Tamar Bates added another one, then Jackson-Davis converted a three-point play. Indiana (4-0) led 43-26 at half, a margin that grew to 34 at one point in the second half. It was a homecoming of sorts for Jackson-Davis, who was a star at Center Grove High School in the Indianapolis suburbs. He had his first double-double of the season by halftime with 13 points and 10 rebounds and finished with 16 rebounds for the 33rd double-double of his career. Jalen Hood-Schifino added 12 points for the Hoosiers, who had 10 players contribute at least five points. Julian Lewis and Mekhi Lairy each had 12 points for the Redhawks (1-3). Miami came out firing and mostly missing from 3-point range, but the Redhawks stayed close early on. The Redhawks were 7 of 22 from beyond the arc in the first half and finished 10 of 34.
