INDIANAPOLIS (WLFI) – Indiana held on for a 116-113 victory over Purdue in the second annual Knox Indy Pro-Am Rivalry game before a crowd of about 500 on Saturday night at IUPUI’s gym.
Purdue led 60-54 at halftime and scored the first 10 points of the second half before IU rallied.
David Teague, the oldest player at 31, scored a game-high 47 points for Purdue. Terone Johnson, who just finished his senior year at Purdue, added 24 points.
“I was going for 50 this year. I had 47, but the most disappointing part is not coming up with the win. You know, last year, we got the win. We had some bragging rights for a year, until now. You know them guys came in, they came back, they took it this year. So, we got to wait for next year,” said Teague.
