All five starters ended the game in double digit scoring. IU was suffocating on defense forcing 18 turnovers and racked up 10 steals and five blocks. The Hoosiers also managed to keep turnovers to a minimum, giving up the ball just eight times.
IU also held a 34-23 rebounding edge. The Hoosiers were lights out from the free throw line as well, nailing 19-of-20 attempts.
Cody Zeller finally led the team again with a double-double. The sophomore finished the game with 19 points and 11 rebounds. He also notched two steals.
Victor Oladipo continued to play on an exceptionally high level. Oladipo had 17 points, six rebounds, and three steals.
Jordan Hulls had 10 points, but struggled shooting the ball (just 3-for-10 from the field). Yogi Ferrell finished with 11 points (including back-to-back, game breaking three-pointers), three assists, one block, and a steal.
Christian Watford went 4-for-5 from the three-point line and gave IU 17 points.
Will Sheehey was a force on offense and drew the ire of the student section after trolling the Purdue fans. He finished with just seven points but the big stat was his seven assists, most of which seemed to go to Oladipo.
IU's ball movement was exceptional and the Hoosiers racked up 21 assists.
