#21/22 Hoosiers start fast in upsetting #1/1 Purdue 79-74

Trayce Jackson-Davis

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. – Indiana 79, Purdue 74.

A defining Hoosier victory over top-ranked Purdue was within reach Saturday evening, a few final crunch-time plays were needed after a 16-point lead was down to one, and freshman Jalen Hood-Schifino, even with superstar Trayce Jackson-Davis around and a 1-for-14 shooting effort in his recent past, wanted the ball.
Coach Mike Woodson gave it to him.
The result, Hood-Schifino scored the final four points and the No. 21/22 Hoosiers ended Purdue’s nine-game winning streak and likely two-week run atop the polls.

Forget Hood-Schifino’s rough shooting night four days earlier at Maryland. He certainly did.
He scored 12 of his 16 points in the second half, and was 8-for-15 from the field along with four assists, two steals and one turnover.

IU (16-7 overall, 7-5 in the Big Ten) won for the sixth time in seven games. Purdue leads the conference with an 11-2 record, 21-2 overall.

Feeding meant forcing 16 Purdue turnovers and a game-deciding 20-8 advantage in points off turnovers.

IU attacked with ruthless defense and exploitive offense en route to first-half leads as large as 16. Against a team that hadn’t allowed 70 points in 24 games, it had 50 by halftime.

In the marquee individual matchup, the 6-9 Jackson-Davis totaled 25 points, seven rebounds and five blocks. Purdue’s 7-4 Zach Edey had 33 points, 18 rebounds and three blocks.
