The Indiana Hoosiers made their biggest statement ever against the rival Purdue Boilermakers at Mackey Arena on January 30, prevailing 97-60.

The huge win was third-ranked Indiana's most lopsided victory in West Lafayette, IN in the 199-game series between the two schools.

In an article he wrote moments after the game, Bob Kravitz of the Indianapolis Star also confirms two facts:

  • This was Purdue's worst-ever home loss dating back to their days at Lambert Fieldhouse.
  • The 97 points scored by the Hoosiers match the biggest total ever allowed by a Matt Painter-coached squad.

With the victory, IU bolstered its record to 19-2 which includes a 7-1 record in Big Ten Conference play. The Hoosiers have won four in a row since losing to the Wisconsin Badgers 64-59 at home on January 15. They also remain undefeated on the road with a 6-0 mark, notching their fifth straight away victory versus a Big Ten Conference opponent. 

Furthermore, this win sets the stage for an expected epic battle against Trey Burke, Tim Hardaway, Jr. and No.1-ranked Michigan in Bloomington, IN on February 2.

Let's look back at some key takeaways from IU's blowout win against Purdue.
