Iowa holds off Nebraska for first Big Ten win


AP Some quick analysis from Purdue's 86-70 rout of 25th-ranked Iowa in Mackey Arena Thursday night. AT THE RIM

In that time, we've seen the Hawks fall one spot every single week in the AP Rankings for no apparent reason.

Purdue improved to 9-1 in its last 10 home games against Iowa. "During his toughest times, he was finding a way to make other people better rather than complaining about what he may have been going through, which was the worst time of his life". The Boilermakers shot 24-of-55 from the floor, 7-of-22 on 3-point tries and 18-of-24 from the free throw line.

Purdue paid tribute to Boilermakers superfan Tyler Trent, who died Tuesday at 20 years old after a battle with bone cancer. This was also the third consecutive game in which Iowa has been without the services of typical starter, Luka Garza (sprained ankle). We got into heavy foul trouble with everybody with two, but you can't give them 63 percent in the first half.

Evan Boudreaux started at the center position for the third straight game, all wins...

Purdue: The Boilermakers are surging at the right time.

Mercedes F1 boss pays tribute to Michael Schumacher
He shaped and changed the sport forever. "And he was always looking for new Ways to improve his performance on the track". The Ferrari F1 team, where Schumacher earned five titles in 10 seasons, tweeted: "Our champ turns 50 today".

It didn't matter whether Purdue tried to get a good look inside or let it go from deep - it seemed as if the Boilermakers couldn't miss.

The Boilermaker bench brought it as well, scoring 39, compared to Iowa's 10 bench points. Now, the Boilermakers need to play the same way on the road, where they are 0-3 this season to go with 2-2 at neutral sites.

So often this season, the Boilermakers have fallen in love with the three pointer and it has cost them a win on more than one occasion, but against Iowa they pounded the ball into the paint again and again... and again.

Cook led all scorers with 24 points, making 9-of-16 field goals and 6-of-7 free throws.

Purdue: Edwards surpassed 1,400 career points with a 3 early in the second half. Purdue is on the road for three of its next five games.
