INDIANAPOLIS – Rob Phinisee hit a three-pointer with 18 seconds left to give Indiana the lead as the Hoosiers upset No. 4 Purdue 68-65, snapping a 9-game losing streak to the Boilermakers.

Jaden Ivey’s game-tying three attempt rimed out at the buzzer and Indiana fans stormed the court to celebrate Mike Woodson’s first signature win as Hoosiers’ head coach.

Phinisee had a career high 20 points, while Xavier Johnson added 18. Hoosiers All-American Trayce Jackson-Davis was limited to 4 points in 11 minutes while battling foul trouble and an injury.

Ivey led all scorers with 21 points and Mason Gillis added 13, including a lay-up to put the Boilers up two before Phinisee’s game-winner.

It’s the Hoosiers’ first win over their in-state rival since a 77-73 win on February 20, 2016.
