IU falls flat at Purdue, 86-64

Indiana held a lead a few minutes into the game, but that is the only portion of the contest Purdue didn’t control in a 86-64 win at Mackey Arena Sunday.

The Hoosiers shot 21-of-62 from the field, including 7-of-30 from 3-point distance. At the same time, Purdue scored 40 points in the paint and 16 in transition (to zero for the Hoosiers), sealing a win for Purdue in Teri Moren’s first game coaching against her alma mater.

Whitney Bays led the Boilermakers with 27 points and 10 rebounds — one of three players for Purdue in double figures. For the Hoosiers, Larryn Brooks scored a team-high 16 points, while Amanda Cahill nearly clinched her sixth double-double with 9 points and 12 rebounds.

  1. Tough day for our girls on the road as we played terrible defensively! We gave up 86 points which is 17 more than we have given up in any game this year. Purdue shot 47% from the field while we only shoot 34%. We were 5 for 30 from beyond the arc. The other major problem for us was committing 17 turn overs which led to 20 points for the boilers. There were a couple of bright spots for the Hoosiers. Amanda Cahill continued her strong board work this year with 12 and was one basket from a double-double. Jess Walter had another fine game off the bench with 10 points and Brooks and Buss were also in double figures. Buss also had a strong rebounding game with 8 after her 15 against Michigan St.

    We will now have two consecutive home games against Ohio St and Wisconsin. It will be interesting to see how we can come back after this discouraging loss. It would be great for the girls to have large enthusiastic crowds for these next two games. Go Hoosiers!

  2. My question now would be was Michigan St that bad, Purdue that good or did we struggle on the road? After taking the family to the Michigan St game I am shocked they lost this badly today.

  3. JPat, your presence makes anyone become unhinged (Just kidding you good buddy, be normal, gracious and don’t overeact).
