Purdue entered today’s game in Bloomington averaging 64.8 points per game. Once this afternoon’s tilt was over, Indiana had beaten Purdue by a combined 65 points in their two meetings this year.
That stat pretty much sums up the dominance of IU over Purdue this season.
The game was over really before it started. Indiana came out on fire, with Christian Watford and Jordan Hulls knocking down six of their first seven threes combined. With Cody Zeller being aggressive, and Purdue unable to get much going on either end, the rout was on.
And Will Sheehey. Oh Will Sheehey. What a game. The junior scored 22 points and went 9-9 from the field, and IU record for most field goal attempts without a miss. It’s pretty clear that Sheehey saves his best for the Boilers.
The other big story was Victor Oladipo rolling his ankle. He returned to the court later though, and the expectation is that he’ll be okay for Tuesday.
We break down all of this, plus discuss why Purdue just doesn’t look like Purd...
