INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Tyler Scaife scored 19 points, including the game-winning basket with 4.3 seconds left, and ninth-seeded Rutgers upended No. 8 seed Purdue 62-60 in the second round of the Big Ten Tournament on Thursday.
After The Boilermakers tied it at 60 on two free throws by Dominique Oden with 33.2 seconds left, the Scarlet Knights let the clock wind down. Scaife went left around a high screen and continued around a defender before pulling up for a 10-foot contested jumper.
Without a timeout, Purdue hurried the ball downcourt before Oden had a good look at a 3-pointer that went off the front of the rim.

The Scarlet Knights had a nine-point lead with less than three minutes left but Purdue erased that as Oden scored seven points, including a 3-point play to tied it at the 1:50 mark. Scaife, who moved past Cappie Pondexter into second on Rutgers' all-time list with 2,220 points, made it 60-58 with 1:12 to play.
Oden had 25 points for the Boilermakers (18-13).
