-Indiana has looked dominant so far on both ends of the court and has controlled the pace of the game so far

-St. John's has struggled offensively, shooting only 34.5%  and 3-11 from beyond the three point arc.

- The battle of the freshmen, Yankuba Sima vs. Thomas Bryant, has been one sided with the Indiana center having a 15-4 advantage on the scoreboard.

-  Ron Mvouika is St. John's leading scorer with eight points, while Durand Johnson reached seven late in the half.

- Indiana looked unstoppable in all facets. St. John's can't find an open shot and Indiana can't stop finding easy points.

- Bill Walton is commentating. That is all you need to know about that.

-St. John's does not seem to have a favorable matchup on the court. Indiana may be better at all five positions and never let St. Johns within 10 points after the 11:00 minute mark.
