Recap: Indiana vs. North Dakota St

Bloomington, IN (Sports Network) - Cody Zeller recorded 22 points and nine rebounds to lead top-ranked Indiana past North Dakota State, 87-61, at Assembly Hall.

Remy Abell added 14 points while shooting 3-for-3 from three-point range for Indiana (2-0), which improved to 8-0 all-time against Summit League opponents.

"That was definitely something big for me. I know I can get to the rim, but my teammates and coaches have really helped me work on my jump shot," Abell said about his shooting performance.

Jeremy Hollowell also had 14 points and Jordan Hulls contributed 11 in the win.

Marshall Bjorklund had 16 points and Mike Felt netted 11 for the Bison (1-1), who were coming off a 93-47 season-opening victory over Valley City State.

The Bison answered with a 5-0 spurt to close the gap to one, but they would get no closer than that as the Hoosiers responded with a 16-6 run that included a pair of 3-pointers by Hulls to increase their lead to 22-11 just past the midpoint of the first half.
