BLOOMINGTON, Indiana (Ticker) -- Freshman guard Bracey Wright scored the first eight points for No. 6 Indiana, then kept going.
Wright scored a season-high 31 points to lead the unbeaten Hoosiers to an 73-56 victory over Vanderbilt (5-2).
Wright shot 11-of-20 from the field, including 5-of-9 3-pointers. He also added five assists and five rebounds.
The Hoosiers (7-0) opened a 43-29 lead at halftime and led by as many as 20 points in the second half. The Commodores (5-2) made occasional surges but got no closer than 12 points.
Kyle Hornsby added 12 points - all on 3-pointers - and Jeff Newton chipped in 10 for Indiana.
Tom Coverdale, who came into the game tied with Wright as Indiana's leading scorer at 17.2 points per game, shot only 2-of-10 from the field and scored six points. Coverdale led the Hoosiers with six assists.
George Leach and Jeff Newton provided major support for Indiana in the paint, pulling down 14 and 13 rebounds, respectively.
The Hoosiers' seven-game winning streak is their best since an eight-game run during the 1996-97 season. It is their best start since opening the 1989-90 season with 10 wins.
Matt Freije led Vanderbilt with 18 points. David Przybyszewski added a season-high 14 for the Commodores, whose only two losses this season have come to ranked opponents. Vanderbilt fell to then-No. 12 Connecticut on December 1.
Vanderbilt played its first road game of the season. The Commodores have had success in their road openers in recent yeras, defeating Ohio State, Providence, Notre Dame and Western Kentucky since 1997, but could not continue that successful at Assembly Hall.
Indiana has won six of seven all-time meetings with Vanderbilt. This was the first game between the schools since December 8, 1991.
