BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) - Indiana continued its roll right through the small-school portion of its schedule Friday night - and its finally ready to start play in the rugged Big Ten.
Jordan Hulls scored a season-high 20 points, Cody Zeller added 16 and the fifth-ranked Hoosiers cruised past Jacksonville 93-59 in their final non-conference game.

Jacksonville (5-8) was led by Dylan Fritsch with 15 points and Jarvis Haywood with nine, but lost for the fourth time this season to a power-conference school. The Dolphins have now dropped four of their last six overall.
Hulls got things started with a 3-pointer midway through the first half to make it 24-17, and when the 9-2 run ended, with Yogi Ferrell's steal and 15-foot pull-up jumper, the Hoosiers led 30-19.
Hulls followed with three straight 3s in the final 90 seconds, finishing the half with 17 points and five 3s as the Hoosiers took a 48-33 lead at the break.
An 11-3 run early in the second half made it 63-41 and Jacksonville never got closer than 21 the rest of the way.
