Blackmon leads Indiana past Northwestern 71-56 in Big Ten

CHICAGO (AP) Whether Indiana did enough to secure a spot in the NCAA tournament, coach Tom Crean was not sure. His team made a loud case when it appeared to be fading from the conversation.

James Blackmon Jr. scored 25 points, Yogi Ferrell added 17 and Indiana boosted its NCAA hopes with a 71-56 victory over Northwestern in the second round of the Big Ten tournament on Thursday.

The Hoosiers rolled to an easy win after dropping three in a row and eight of 12. With fans calling for Crean's job in recent weeks, Indiana (20-12) jumped out to a big lead in the early going and withstood a push by Northwestern (15-17) in the second half to advance to the quarterfinals. The Hoosiers will meet No. 8 Maryland on Friday.
