McGhee hits off balance jumper to win the game. Wat Shot part two. FINAL: INDIANA 62, PURDUE 61
IU now hanging on to 60-59 lead with 1:14 to go.
Final media timeout: INDIANA 54, PURDUE 52. 3:47 to play in this one.
5:36: Incredibly back-and-forth game. Hoosiers holding on to a 54-40 lead. This is easily Indiana’s best game to date.
McGhee now has 20 points and Hoosiers have a 52-47 lead w/ 9:27 remaining
15:38 2H: Indiana up 38-35. Looks like Andrea Mize will spell Nicole Bell following the media timeout. Bell, along with Sinclair and McGhee, have played the entire game so far.
HALFTIME: INDIANA 34, PURDUE 31. Last time IU led at the half was Jan. 6 vs. Northwestern. That game was also Hoosiers’ last win.
IU has led by 7 twice tonight, including just a moment ago. Hoosiers lead 27-22 entering final media timeout of the first half.
Purdue up 20-19 w/ 7:49 to go. Good game so far. Hoosiers shooting 47%, McGhee has 8 points on 4-for-6 shooting.
Very nice start for the Hoosiers, who lead Purdue 8-3 at the first media timeout. They’ve kept Purdue out of transition and have made the most of 2nd-, 3rd- and even 4th-chance opportunities.

PREGAME: The Indiana women’s basketball team aims to end a 10-game losing streak tonight against the rival Purdue Boilermakers. The No. 22 Boilers, coached by former IU one-hit wonder Sharon Versyp, are 11-1 at Assembly Hall since 1999 and 21-10 in Bloomington all-time.

Indiana will try to snap an eight-game skid against its in-state rival in part by doing exactly what it did last time — shutting down leading scorers Courtney Moses and Drey Mingo. In a 59-42 loss at Mackey Arena on Jan. 31, the Hoosiers held the Boilers’ duo to a combined three points on 1-for-18 shooting from the field.

Tip-off is slated for 7 p.m. In the meantime, here are a couple nuggets courtesy of the IU media relations department:

• Indiana and Purdue have played each other 75 times overall in women’s basketball, as Wednesday’s match up will mark the 76th meeting between the two programs.

• Senior Linda Rubene set a new career mark in her last game with 14 points at Michigan State on Feb. 13, shooting 4-of-6 from the floor, 1-of-1 from beyond the arc and 5-of-5 from the charity stripe to go along with four rebounds.

• Senior Aulani Sinclair has been on the floor for nearly 95 percent of the total minutes Indiana has played this season and leads the Big Ten by logging 37.9 minutes per game this year.

• Sinclair is 20th on IU’s all-time career scoring list (1,074 points), ranks fifth all-time in career 3-point field goals made (171) and is sixth for most 3-point field goals made (60) in a single season.

• Senior Jasmine McGhee has scored in double figures in three of the last four games and is second on the team in scoring with 11.7 points per game and paces the team in rebounding (5.9 rpg).

This was a HUGE WIN for the Seniors and for Coach Miller, which will make a lifetime memory for them.
What a great night for all who attended the game.
