WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. -David Teague scored a career-high 32 points as Purdue beat No. 24 Indiana 81-68 on Thursday night to snap a five-game losing streak in the intrastate rivalry.

Teague made 11 of 18 field goals, including 6-for-8 from 3-point range. He also grabbed seven rebounds.

Carl Landry added 22 points and 11 rebounds and Tarrance Crump added 13 points for Purdue (17-9, 6-6 Big Ten).

D.J. White scored 20 points, Armon Bassett scored 16 and Roderick Wilmont added 15 for Indiana (17-7, 7-4).

Purdue improved to 14-1 at home and boosted its NCAA Tournament hopes with its second win over a ranked team this season. The Boilermakers shot 50 percent from the field and outrebounded the Hoosiers 32-28.

Indiana won the last meeting 85-58 on Jan. 10 in Bloomington. The Hoosiers had won eight of the previous 10 games in the series.

The game was moved from Wednesday to Thursday because of wintry weather that slowed travel throughout Indiana.

Purdue led 34-32 at halftime, but Indiana took a 50-48 lead on a 3-pointer by Bassett with 13:15 to go.

A bad Indiana pass and a scramble led to an uncontested layup by Teague, then Gordon Watt's steal and layup gave the Boilermakers a 55-52 lead. A bucket and a 3-point play by Landry, followed by a 3-pointer by Teague, pushed Purdue's lead to 63-54 with 7:29 left. Purdue led by at least six points the rest of the way.

The tension on the court became evident when White went for a rebound with 8:27 left in the first half. Purdue's Chris Kramer tied him up and it led to a skirmish that got the sellout crowd more involved.

Purdue led by 11 points in the first half, but Indiana chipped away until halftime. Earl Calloway's short jumper in the closing seconds of the half cut Purdue's lead to two points at the break. White scored 16 points in the first half to keep the Hoosiers in the game.
