Indiana had no problem going on the road and beating in-state rival Purdue Wednesday night. Five players in double figures fueled the 37-point victory for the Hoosiers.
The No. 3 Indiana Hoosiers turned a 20-point halftime lead into a 97-60 win Wednesday night on the road in front of a hostile crowd at Purdue University.
Indiana improved to 19-2, 7-1 in the Big Ten with the win and has now won four straight since a loss to Wisconsin on Jan. 15.
Up 47-27 at halftime, the Hoosiers refused to hold back, outscoring Purdue by another 17 points in the second half. Overall, Indiana was maybe helped most by its discipline. The Hoosiers were 19-of-20 from the foul line and turned the ball over just eight times.
For Purdue, it was a different story. A.J. Hammons' 30 points was exactly half of the team's scoring and the Boilermakers turned it over 18 times, limiting their opportunities. They were also outrebounded, 34-23.
Purdue is now 11-10 overall and 4-4 in Big Ten play.
