Indiana’s Cody Zeller, right, dunks on Taylor Braun during the first half for two of the center’s game-high 22 points.

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. — Cody Zeller and his teammates were not themselves Monday night.

The 7-foot center had an excuse: He was sick. His teammates looked like they caught the same bug until they found a remedy at halftime.

Zeller, Remy Abell and Jeremy Hollowell turned the game with a second-half run as No. 1 Indiana (2-0) pulled away for an 87-61 victory over North Dakota State in the first round of the Progressive Legends Classic.

"Your fundamentals, your technique, all your experiences, all those things are really, really important, but there's nothing bigger than energy and toughness. It's got to be there constantly," Indiana coach Tom Crean said.

Abell, a sophomore, made all five shots including three 3-pointers to finish with a career-high 14 points. Hollowell, a freshman, scored 14 in 19 minutes, and freshman point guard Yogi Ferrell was strong on defense.

NO. 5 MICHIGAN 91, IUPUI 54: Trey Burke scored 22 and Glenn Robinson III added 21 for the host Wolverines (2-0) in the NIT Season Tip-Off.

NO. 17 MEMPHIS 81, N. FLORIDA 66: Tarik Black had 18 points and seven rebounds for the host Tigers, who overcame a sluggish start in their season opener.

NO. 18 UNLV 92, N. ARIZ. 54: Freshman Anthony Bennett had 22 points and seven rebounds to lead the host Rebels in their season opener.

NO. 20 NOTRE DAME 84, MONMOUTH 57: Garrick Sherman had 22 points and seven rebounds for the host Irish (2-0).

TOURNEY SITES: Madison Square Garden will host the East Region in 2014. The other region sites will be Anaheim, Calif., Indianapolis and Memphis, Tenn. Orlando will host second- and third-round games. The Final Four will be at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas.

AP POLL: Connecticut, which lost Hall of Fame coach Jim Calhoun and five underclassmen after last season, entered at No. 23. FSU fell out from 25th. Indiana remained No. 1.


NO. 13 VANDY 62, LIPSCOMB 45: Jasmine Lister had 24 points and hit 6 of 10 3-pointers for the visiting Commodores (1-1).

NO. 14 W. VA. 60, BOSTON U 57: Ayana Dunning had 16 points, 11 rebounds and four blocks to help the visiting Mountaineers (2-0) hang on.

NO. 23 MIAMI 69, RICHMOND 63: Michelle Woods had a career-high 20 points and Krystal Saunders hit a 3-pointer with 17.9 seconds left to lift the visiting Hurricanes (2-0).

AP POLL: Baylor remained a unanimous No. 1. No. 19 Texas and No. 25 Georgetown replaced Georgia Tech and DePaul.
