| Monday, Jan. 23, 2012

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. — Cody Zeller scored 18 points, and No. 11 Indiana rallied for a 73-54 victory over Penn State on Sunday.

For a half, it appeared Penn State (10-11, 2-6 Big Ten) would ride its defense to a third straight victory in Bloomington. But Indiana (16-4, 4-4) scored the first four points of the second half to take a 31-29 lead and never trailed again to end a three-game losing streak.

Tim Frazier had 21 points, and Nick Colella added 11 for Penn State, which was coming off an upset of No. 22 Illinois but has lost four of five.

Jordan Hulls scored all 14 of his points in the second half for the Hoosiers.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
