BLOOMINGTON, Ind. - Mackenzie Holmes scored 17 of her 21 points in the first half, and No. 4 Indiana completed an unbeaten nonconference schedule with a 67-50 win over Butler.

Yarden Garzon added 13 points and Sydney Parrish 10 for the Hoosiers (12-0).

Rachel McLimore scored 13 and Sydney Jaynes 11 for Butler (5-7).

The Bulldogs stayed close early, trailing 12-11 with two minutes left in the first quarter.

Indiana outscored Butler 9-0 in the opening 87 seconds of the second quarter, featuring Holmes' three-point play and successive 3-pointers by Parrish and Garzon. The run eventually became 18-3, expanding the Hoosiers' lead to 35-16.

Butler cut what had been a 19-point deficit to 41-31 midway through the third quarter, thanks to three inside baskets by James. That was as close as the Bulldogs would come.

Indiana is 8-0 at home, featuring wins by 37, 56, 35, 37, 24, 63 and 17 points. The Hoosiers' one close victory was 65-61 over Illinois in a Big Ten opener on Dec. 4.

Indiana is nearing the program record for most successive wins to open a season: 15-0 in 1972, the first year for women's basketball at the school. The Hoosiers were 14-0 in 2013-14.

BIG PICTURE
