BLOOMINGTON, Ind. — Cody Zeller had 24 points, Christian Watford scored 17 and No. 6 Indiana overwhelmed another undermanned opponent Friday night, routing Florida Atlantic 88-52.

Indiana has shot a combined 60.4 percent from the field in two games this week en route to a 29th consecutive nonconference win at home.

The Owls (5-7) were led by Greg Gantt, who finished with 25 points. He needs four more to break Earnest Crumbley's school scoring record (1,559).

But Indiana never gave coach Mike Jarvis' team a chance in a game that turned ugly fast.

Since losing Saturday to Butler, the Hoosiers (11-1) are 64 of 106 from the field and have held two opponents to a combined shooting rate of 32.8.

Playing twice in three nights has only seemed to help the Hoosiers, who led 55-25 at halftime. They came into the game leading the nation in scoring (89.2 points) and were No. 3 in field goal shooting (52.1).

Notre Dame 89, Niagara 67

SOUTH BEND, Ind. — Jack Cooley had 24 points and 15 rebounds, both season highs, to lead Notre Dame over Niagara.

SANTA BARBARA, Calif. — A'dia Mathies scored 19 points and No. 7 Kentucky extended its winning streak to nine games with a victory over UC Santa Barbara.

The Wildcats (10-1) went 2-0 on their Pacific Coast road trip that began with an 80-62 win over Pepperdine in Malibu on Tuesday.

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. — Courtney Moses scored 18 points, Drey Mingo added 13 and Purdue used a big second-half run to extend its best start in a decade.
