Jalen Hood-Schifino started Saturday's game against Ohio State a perfect 4-for-4 shooting with 11 points in the first six-plus minutes of action.

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. – Jalen Hood-Schifino has 11 points in the first six minutes and four seconds of Indiana's Saturday night matchup against Ohio State.

The 6-foot-6 freshman point guard is a perfect 4-for-4 overall and 3-for-3 from 3-point land, including this pull-up jumper. 

Hood-Schifino was in a bit of a shooting slump the last two games, but that's clearly past him now. He scored just two points against Michigan State on Sunday and finished with six points on 2-for-11 shooting against Minnesota on Wednesday, but he's surpassed those totals early on in this game.
