 BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) - Will Sheehey scored a career-high 22 points and Cody Zeller had 19 as No. 1 Indiana rolled over Purdue 83-55 on Saturday, routing the Boilermakers for the second time in 2 1/2 weeks.
Indiana (23-3, 11-2 Big Ten) bucked the recent trend of No. 1 teams losing and will likely keep the top spot for a third straight week. It also will retain at least a share of the league lead.
The Hoosiers have won eight of their last nine games.
Terone Johnson and Anthony Johnson each had 11 points to lead Purdue (12-14, 5-8), which has lost five of six and became the first team in school history to lose twice to Indiana in the same season by 20 or more points.
Indiana led 21-18 less than nine minutes into the game, extended the margin to 33-14 and never let Purdue get closer than 10 again.

Cole Dickerson scored 15 points and Cody Doolin added 14 to help the Dons (11-15, 4-9) rally back after trailing by 15 in the first half. Unlike the last three years when USF stunned Gonzaga at home, the Bulldogs regrouped and showed why they're ranked so high.
