BLOOMINGTON, Ind. — Verdell Jones scored 18 points, Christian Watford had 14 and Maurice Creek added 11 to help Indiana rout Savannah State 79-57 on Saturday.

The Hoosiers (7-1) have won all seven home games this season and extended their home winning streak to eight, dating to last season's regular-season finale.

Joshua Montgomery scored 15 points to pace Savannah State (1-9), but it wasn't nearly enough to avoid a ninth consecutive loss. Next up for the Tigers is a trip to Georgia Tech.

Saturday's game was every bit as lopsided as the score indicated.

Indiana took control with a 10-0 run midway through the first half, which gave it a 22-12 lead. The Hoosiers increased the margin to 44-28 at halftime and used an early 8-0 run in the second half to make it 52-30 with 16:04 to go.

The Tigers couldn't get closer than 20 the rest of the way.
