Indiana opens homestand against Tennessee State

Dec 3, 2007 - 4:21 PM Tennessee St (2-3) at No. 15 Indiana (6-1) 7:00 pm EST

BLOOMINGTON, Indiana (Ticker) -- After surviving a tough road test, Indiana likely is happy to return to Assembly Hall.

The 15th-ranked Hoosiers kick off a five-game homestand Monday when they host Tennessee State.

Two games removed from a 15-point loss to Xavier at the Chicago Invitational Challenge, Indiana held on for a 64-51 victory at Southern Illinois on Saturday.

Freshman sensation Eric Gordon scored 22 points to pace the Hoosiers, who are 4-0 at home this season.

Gordon is averaging a whopping 26.6 points this season and is the first player in school history to begin his career with seven consecutive games of 20 or more points.

The Hoosiers will look for another big performance from Gordon against the Tigers, who have not played since a 74-72 loss to Akron in Alaska on November 18.

Tennessee State, which returned six players from last year's team, is led by junior guard Bruce Price, who boasts team-best averages in scoring (16.8 ppg) and assists (6.2 apg).
