Purdue started the second half on a 12-3 run that included three buckets by Wisdom-Hylton to take a 42-29 lead.

Skouby and Smith scored for Iowa to cut Purdue's lead to 42-33, but a 3-point play by Rayburn and a mid-range jumper by Wisdom-Hylton and a fast-break layup by Rayburn boosted Purdue's lead to 49-33 with 7:19 to play.
