Purdue takes advantage of Indiana's shooting to end skid

By  | 

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) - Purdue got 19 points from Trevion Williams and 17 from Eric Hunter Jr. and held off a late charge from in-state rival Indiana for a 57-49 victory.

By snapping a four-game losing streak, the Boilermakers kept their teetering NCAA Tournament hopes intact.

Devonte Green led the Hoosiers with 11 points. Their two-game winning streak ended with a seventh straight loss to Purdue.

The Boilermakers took advantage of Indiana's shooting woes to take a 16-point lead early in the second half. But Indiana cut the deficit to five with less than a minute to play.

The Boilermakers made their last six free throws to seal it.
