BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) -Eric Gordon scored 25 points and D.J. White added 22, including nine during a 14-4 second-half run that carried No. 9 Indiana to an 81-65 win over Penn State on Sunday.
The Hoosiers (16-1, 5-0 Big Ten) won their 27th straight home game and stretched their winning streak this season to 12 games, their longest in 15 years.
Penn State (10-7, 2-3), which lost leading scorer and rebounder Geary Claxton with a season-ending knee injury against Wisconsin on Tuesday, came out strong, stayed with the Hoosiers most of the game and led 52-51 before a 3-pointer by Gordon started Indiana's big run.
Armon Bassett added 17 points and Jamarcus Ellis finished with 12 for the Hoosiers. Battle, a freshman, had a career-high 20 points and Jamelle Cornley added 19 for Penn State. Freshman Jeff Brooks, who started in place of Claxton, had six points.
