Purdue thumped Rutgers 96-68 on Thursday night in West Lafayette.

The result gets the Boilermakers back in the win column after they lost to Ohio State over the weekend to pick up their 3rd defeat of the season.

The No. 3 Boilermakers got another huge game from National Player of the Year frontrunner Zach Edey, who poured in 25 points in the victory. Edey also snagged 7 rebounds, which was tied for the team-high.

Purdue also continues to get solid play out of its back court. Lance Jones and Braden Smith both scored in double figures with 17 and 13 points, respectively. Camden Heide added in 18 points off the bench, marking a new career-high for the freshman forward.

Rutgers wasn’t able to do anything defensively against Purdue — least of all, rebound. The Scarlet Knights managed just 15 defensive rebounds and only grabbed 24 boards overall (11 fewer than Purdue). The Boilermakers also shot 58.9% from the floor and 52.2% from long range.

The win pushes Purdue another step closer toward clinching the Big Ten regular season title and the No. 1 seed in the Big Ten Basketball Tournament. Thanks to this win, Matt Painter’s squad now has a 2.5-game lead over Illinois in the league standings.

Purdue has 4 games remaining on its schedule, with the next one coming against Michigan on Sunday afternoon.
