WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. — Robbie Hummel scored 17 points to help Purdue defeat Iowa 75-68 on Tuesday night.
Hummel also had 11 rebounds and affected the game in many ways, despite shooting just 5 for 14 from the field.
Lewis Jackson scored 14 points, Ryne Smith scored 12, Kelsey Barlow had 11 points and seven rebounds and Terone Johnson added 10 points for the Boilermakers (14-5, 4-2 Big Ten), who bounced back from a 67-62 loss to Wisconsin that ended their 26-game home winning streak.
Zach McCabe scored 20 points, Roy Devyn Marble had 18 and Matt Gatens added 12 for the Hawkeyes (11-9, 3-4), who were coming off a 75-59 win over Michigan. The Hawkeyes led by 11 points in the first half, but didn't shoot well after that.
Purdue swept the season series, having won 79-76 in Iowa City on Dec. 28.
The Boilermakers outrebounded the Hawkeyes 41-32 and had 16 offensive rebounds.
Iowa led 36-31 at halftime. The Hawkeyes shot 48 percent in the first half and committed just four turnovers.
Purdue opened the second half on a 5-0 run, tying the game on Barlow's put-back. A jumper by Hummel finally gave the Boilermakers a 41-39 lead. A fadeaway shot by Johnson and two free throws by Hummel gave the Boilermakers a 49-42 lead.
The Boilermakers extended their lead to 10 points before Iowa started chipping away. A put-back by Aaron White and a bucket by Marble cut Purdue's lead to 53-51 and forced the Boilermakers to call a timeout.
Jackson helped Purdue regain control. He made a tiptoe save near the sideline, then drove, was fouled and made two free throws. He followed that with a free-throw line jumper to push the lead back to six points. Buckets by Travis Carroll on consecutive trips down the floor gave Purdue a 61-53 lead.
Purdue, which entered the game shooting 61 percent from the free-throw line, made 8 of 10 in the final 1:10.
