Boilers Hold Off Hoosiers 78-75

Robbie Hummel and JaJuan Johnson each scored 21 points, and No. 8 Purdue held off in-state rival Indiana 78-75 on Thursday night.

The Boilermakers won in Bloomington for the first time since 1999 to snap an eight-game road skid against the Hoosiers.

E'Twaun Moore added 14 points for Purdue (19-3, 7-3 Big Ten), which won its fifth straight heading into a showdown at conference leader Michigan State next Tuesday.

Indiana's Verdell Jones III, who led the Hoosiers with 22 points, missed a long 3-pointer at the buzzer that could have forced overtime.
