WEST LAFAYETTE — Cody Zeller scored 13 of his 19 points in the first half, Christian Watford added 17 points and No. 3 Indiana routed rival Purdue 97-60 on Wednesday night to hand the Boilermakers their worst loss at Mackey Arena.

The Hoosiers (19-2, 7-1 Big Ten) have won four straight overall and five consecutive road games in league play, keeping a share of the conference lead. No. 1 Michigan also won Wednesday night, beating Northwestern 68-46, to set up a Saturday night showdown between the league leaders in Bloomington.

Purdue (11-10, 4-4) was led by freshman center A.J. Hammons, who had a career-high 30 points, but couldn’t avoid a second straight home loss to the Hoosiers. The Boilermakers have lost only twice in their last six games.

Indiana took control early with a 9-0 run, then closed the first half on a 13-2 spurt to take a 47-27 halftime lead.
