Indiana Ends 6-Year Losing Streak to Rival #4 Purdue (68-65)

Bedlam in Bloomington! The age-old in-state rivalry had been lopsided in recent years with Purdue winning nine straight games against Indiana dating back to 2016. The Hoosiers, with a new coach in Mike Woodson, welcomed the fourth-ranked Boilers for Thursday night’s marquee college hoops matchup. A back-and-forth affair came down to the wire before the Hoosiers got a pair of free throws from Trayce Jackson-Davis, and Purdue’s Jaden Ivey saw a game-tying 3-point attempt rim out at the buzzer. IU’s Rob Phinisee poured in a career-high 20 points off the bench, and the IU fans stormed the court at Assembly Hall. After six years, the Hoosiers own the state of Indiana once again.
