WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. — JaJuan Johnson and E’Twaune Moore remain very good players.

Purdue’s seniors were the difference on Tuesday in Mackey Arena, combining for 40 points in a 67-53 Purdue win against Indiana.

“It’ll be interesting to play these guys someday, when these two aren’t in there dominating the way they do,” Indiana coach Tom Crean said.

Overall, Crean said the Hoosiers matched the No. 14 Boilermakers in terms of physicality and did a good job of limiting Johnson (while he had 15 points, he was 4-of-10 from the field).

Will Sheehey continued to play with a lot of energy that leads to production (a team-high 14 points), while Victor Oladipo had 11 deflections.

Jordan Hulls played through the holds and grabs that happen on the road in the Big Ten, and Verdell Jones played more minutes (28) than he was expecting.

Still, the Hoosiers struggled to make enough shots to take a real run at the rival Boilermakers. Indiana was 0-of-7 from 3-point range in the first half and 2-of-13 for the game, never getting the baskets it needed when it had to have them.
