    of overmatched Liberty.Blackmon made five 3-pointers and had 20 points to help
    No. 6 Indiana rout Liberty 87-48 on Saturday night.Indiana (3-0) scored the
    first nine points and built a 32-point lead in the first half.The game seemed
    like it lasted four days, Liberty coach Ritchie McKay said. I cannot remember
    the start.Hoosiers coach Tom Crean sure did.The most important thing for us was
    to get off to a really good start defensively, he said.Liberty (1-2) tried to
    fight back with 3-pointers, but made it worse by continually missing. The Flames
    were 5 of 27 (18.5 percent) from beyond the arc, including 1 of 17 (5.9 percent)
    in the first half. Indiana finished 9 of 21 (42.9 percent).Thats one thing we
    wanted to definitely focus on, no matter who were playing, play like were us and
    not play to the opponent, said Blackmon, who is averaging 23 points and has 14
    3-pointers.Robert Johnson added 13 points for Indiana and OG Anunoby had 10
    points and 11 rebounds, the first double-double of the sophomore forwards
    career. Anunobys energy was noticeable at both ends on back-to-back possessions
    when he blocked a shot three rows deep into the stands and then threw down a
    two-handed dunk off a rebound.Were not where we want to be, Anunoby said of the
    Hoosiers defense, but we know well get better.Crean had stressed the importance
    of rebounding before his Hoosiers seized a 55-20 advantage on the
    boards.Tonight, it was more about, `Lets get on the glass, Crean said. `Lets get
    on the glass offensively. Lets get on the glass defensively. Lets make sure our
    effort and energy is really good there.Crean thought his teams season-opening
    trip to Hawaii eight days ago had his players jet-lagged earlier in the week.
    The legs were fresher against the Flames as the Hoosiers hounded Liberty into 26
    turnovers.We try to be disruptive in passing lanes and box out and just pressure
    the ball, Anunoby said.Libertys John Dawson, who entered with a team-best
    14.5-point average, scored just two points on 1-of-7 shooting. No Liberty player
    scored in double digits.McKay was overly effusive in his praise of the
    Hoosiers.Indiana is really impressive, the coach said. I sat on an ACC bench the
    last six years and saw a lot of quality teams and Indiana is as good as I have
    seen in years.They have everything; size, depth, strength, skill, unselfishness.
    That is a terrific team.ADVANTAGE BY 3SIndiana has made 35 of 79 3-pointers
    (44.3 percent) with eight different players contributing at least one basket
    from long range. In addition to Blackmons 14, Johnson, Anunoby and Curtis Jones
    each have four. Hoosiers opponents have made just 21 of 71 3-pointers (29.6
    percent).INDIANA CLASSICIndiana improved to 2-0 in its four-team tournament,
    which also includes UMass Lowell and Fort Wayne. The Hoosiers drubbed UMass
    Lowell 100-78 on Wednesday.BIG PICTURELiberty: The Flames have never knocked off
    a Top 25 team in 14 tries and have never defeated a Big Ten foe in four
    meetings, so its not as if they expected to pull off an upset. They can bounce
    back with two winnable home games.Indiana: Its all about staying perfect against
    inferior competition as the Hoosiers inch closer to a Nov. 30 home showdown
    against No. 5 North Carolina.UP NEXTLiberty: Host UMass Lowell on
    Monday.Indiana: At Fort Wayne on Tuesday.---More AP college basketball: and
