Cream takes NOTLR scrimmage

A Cream team led by 7-foot center Guy-Marc Michel built a second lead of 25 points and held on for a 65-51 victory tonight over Crimson in the Night of the Living Red team scrimmage. Michel finished with a double-double by scoring 14 points and grabbing 10 rebounds. Daniel Moore led the winners with 18 points and Christian Watford of the Crimson squad led all scorers with 24 points.

The tone was set on the first play when Cream stole the ball and Victor Oladipo slammed one home to the delight of the crowd. The winners added a pair of other early steals by Moore that also led to easy layups at the other end. Later in the half Michel had a pair of slams to spur his team. one came off a pretty drive and alley-oop pass from freshman Will Sheehey. at half Cream led Crimson, 36-22.

The crowd at Assembly Hall was estimated tonight at 7,847. throughout the night there we several chants for recruits sitting behind the IU bench. most all of those chants were for five-star senior Cody Zeller and five-star junior Hanner Perea. Zeller was on his third and final official visit and sat next to Perea and Indiana’s lone senior commit, Austin Etherington of Hamilton Heights.

Missing the scrimmage tonight were guards Verdell Jones III and Jeremiah Rivers. Jones is recovering from a sprained ankle of six days ago and Rivers had a concussion recently and was held out for cautionary purposes. Junior big man Tom Prichard had a large wrap on the wrist of his left shooting but played throughout.
