   STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) -- Christian Watford scored 16 points, Jordan Hulls added 14 and No. 5 Indiana used a big first-half run to race past Penn State 74-51 on Monday night.
 
   The Hoosiers' breakneck offense could rarely be stopped in the first half before the pace slowed down in a sloppy second half. But it barely mattered after Indiana (14-1, 2-0 Big Ten) built a 19-point lead in the first half behind Watford's inside-out game and Hulls' quick-release jumpers.
 
   No wonder Indiana had the top scoring offense in the nation (87.9 points) entering Monday night's blowout.
 
   Jermaine Marshall had 11 points for the Nittany Lions (8-6, 0-2), which had a five-game home winning streak snapped. Ross Travis added 14 points and five rebounds.
