No. 1 Indiana Rolls Past No. 14 UNC 83-59

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) -- Cody Zeller had 20 points and eight rebounds, leading No. 1 Indiana to a stunning 83-59 rout of No. 14 North Carolina on Tuesday night in the ACC-Big Ten Challenge.

Victor Oladipo and Will Sheehey both added 19 points for the Hoosiers (7-0), who have won 34 consecutive November games at home.

The Tar Heels (5-2) were led by Dexter Strickland with 14 points and Marcus Paige with 11 -- not nearly enough when North Carolina managed three points and one field goal -- a tip-in that Indiana may have gotten a hand on -- in the first 8 1/2 minutes of the second half.

For 16 minutes, the college powerhouses battled to a 31-31 draw.

But Zeller scored six points in a 15-6 run to close the first half and played a key role in the Hoosiers' 13-0 spurt to open the second half that turned the game.
