Indiana's dominance over its biggest rival played out to a blowout for the second time this season. On Jan. 30, Zeller had 19 points and 11 rebounds in the Hoosiers' 97-60 road win over the Boilermakers.

Purdue (12-14, 5-8) shot 37 percent from the floor Saturday, and its rebounding disadvantage and 16 turnovers didn't provide nearly enough to overcome Indiana's 56-percent shooting performance.

The win bumped Indiana's Big 10 record to 11-2, breaking a tie atop the league standings with the No. 8 Michigan State Spartans, who play the Nebraska Cornhuskers on Saturday at 8 p.m. ET.
