Morgan wins the praise of Painter

BLOOMINGTON – Indiana has won just one of its last three games, but Juwan Morgan has been a standout all three times.

He finished 10 for 18 from the field, marking the second time he has taken 18 shots in the last three games, after never taking that many before in his career.

In addition to his solid play on offense, Morgan drew the unenviable assignment of trying to stop Haas in the post, a matchup in which the Indiana forward gave up about six inches.

He battled for much of the night, trying to keep Haas away from the rim, but the difficulty of defending a much larger player without foulingeventually caught up with him late in the game.

Morgan picked up his fourth foul with 4:44 left and struggled defending Haas down the stretch.
