Iowa got within 11, but Purdue quickly pushed the lead back up to 18 with a 7-0 run, including Jahhad Proctor's second 3.

15:49 2nd: Purdue 45, Iowa 33

Ryan Kriener started the second half for Iowa and has given the Hawkeyes a bit of a spark with a 3-pointer and 1-for-2 trip to the line.

Still plenty of work to do, obviously, but a 1-for-5 start to the half and four turnovers for Purdue helps.

Halftime: Purdue 42, Iowa 25

So far, this one looks a lot like the first time these two teams met. You could sum it up with one sequence, when Purdue's Evan Boudreaux hit a 3-pointer, then Jahaad Proctor got a steal in the backcourt and layup to put the Boilermakers up 42-21 with 1:52 left in the half.

Purdue shot 48.6 percent and had an 11-2 advantage in second-chance points.

Iowa shot 39 percent, including 3 for 16 from 3-point range. Luka Garza has 10 points and six rebounds.

3:41 1st: Purdue 33, Iowa 21

A 7-0 run gave the Boilermakers their largest lead (15) before a Connor McCaffery 3-pointer. Purdue has eight offensive rebounds and 11 second-chance points.

Iowa Coach Fran McCaffery was whistled for a technical foul arguing a call during that run.

7:49 1st: Purdue 24, Iowa 16

Iowa is 1 for its last 7 and hasn't scored in 2:01. The Hawkeyes are 2 of 10 from 3-point range and CJ Fredrick has the only two makes.

11:48 1st: Purdue 16, Iowa 9

CJ Fredrick broke a 4-minute, 23-second scoring drought with a 3-pointer to cut the lead to 11-7, but Purdue went back up nine a few minutes later on a Jahaad Proctor 3.

The Boilermakers have four offensive rebounds, Iowa none.
