Hoosiers barely hold off LIU-Brooklyn, 73-72

Updated:
BLOOMINGTON -

Will Sheehey scored 15 of his 19 points in the second half, making the go-ahead 3-pointer with 1:47 left to lead Indiana past pesky LIU-Brooklyn 73-72 on Tuesday.
 
Indiana (2-0) continued its home mastery against non-conference foes barely avoiding a stunning upset to the three-time defending Northeast Conference champs.
 
The Hoosiers trailed most of the night and survived largely because of Sheehey's late scoring binge. He tied the score at 70 with 2:43 to go, then hit another 3 to make it 73-72.
 
LIU-Brooklyn (1-1) had two chances to win it in the closing seconds, but Jason Brickman missed a layup. And after Indiana missed the front end of a one-and-one, Brickman's buzzer-beating 3-pointer came up short. Troy Joseph led the Blackbirds with 16 points.
