Purdue was able to maintain its momentum from the comeback win over Michigan State, beating Indiana for the eighth straight time Thursday evening.

Though Indiana put together a couple of runs against the Boilermakers, Purdue always had an answer in the game, and that answer was usually Trevion Williams. After a key 26-point outing against the Spartans, Williams was once again the key Thursday night.

Williams shot 9-for-15 from the floor against the Hoosiers and finished with 22 points and 10 rebounds for the double-double. He also added two assists and could have finished with even more points had he not continued his struggles from the free-throw line. Williams went just 4-for-9 from the line.

For the Hoosiers, they received another excellent performance from Trayce Jackson-Davis. He put up a game-high 25 points on 9-for-16 shooting to go with four rebounds, an assist, and a block. Unfortunately, Indiana shot 16.7% (3-for-18) from three-point range. By contrast, Purdue shot 11-for-17 (64.7%) from deep, proving to be the difference-maker.

The win by the Boilermakers was the eighth straight and 11th in the past 12 meetings between the two in-state rivals. Archie Miller, who took over for the Hoosiers in 2017, is still looking for his first win against Purdue since arriving in Bloomington.

Purdue moves to 9-5 on the season, 4-3 in B1G play, and is set to face Penn State on Sunday. Indiana falls to 8-6 overall, 3-4 in B1G play, and will not have a game until next Thursday against Iowa. Sunday’s game vs Michigan State has been postponed.
