WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (Purdue Sports) — Leaving everything on the floor for their final Barn Burner Trophy game, seniors Dominique Oden and Ae'Rianna Harris tallied 40 points in the Purdue women's basketball team's 66-54 loss to in-state rival No. 18 Indiana on Monday night at Mackey Arena.

The loss snapped a three-game winning streak, as the Boilermakers fell to 15-8 on the year and 6-5 in the Big Ten Conference.

Oden went for a game-high 24 points on 10-of-19 shooting. The Atlanta native topped 20 points for the third straight game. Harris chipped in with 16 points and seven rebounds. Purdue shot 35.6% from the field and connected on just a pair of 3-pointers in the loss.

The Boilermakers struggled to find rhythm offensively in the opening 20 minutes with just a 29% clip from the field. Oden led Purdue offensively nine points on 3-of-6 shooting. The Hoosiers took advantage of seven offensive rebounds to score 10 second chance points.

Purdue responded in the third quarter, hitting seven of their first 10 shots. The Boilermakers kept it clean on the offensive end without committing a turnover. Oden gave the hosts a spark with 10 points, as the Boilermakers closed the gap down to six with a 13-4 run entering the fourth quarter.

Oden and Harris tried to rally the Boilermakers from behind in the last 10 minutes, scoring all 12 points for Purdue. The Hoosiers had an answer for every Boilermaker salvo and went 8-of-9 at the free throw line to keep the game just out of reach for the hosts.

NOTES
• The Boilermakers lead the all-time series against Indiana 55-34.
