West Lafayette, IN (SportsNetwork. E.J. Gaines Jersey .com) - Rapheal Davis scored a team-high 19 points as Purdue shut down No. 22 Indiana 83-67 in a battle of Hoosier State rivals on Wednesday. A sold out Mackey Arena watched their Boilermakers roll to a second straight win over a ranked opponent after knocking off No. 25 Iowa on Saturday. Purdue (13-8, 5-3 Big Ten) held Indiana to a season-low point total thanks to the inside presence of A.J. Hammons, who finished with eight blocks to go along with 11 points. Bryson Scott and Basil Smotherman contributed 11 and eight points, respectively, off the bench for the victors. Yogi Ferrell carried Indiana with 21 points while leading scorer James Blackmon Jr. was limited to 13 on 4-of-13 shooting. The Hoosiers have dropped two in a row on the heels of a four-game winning streak. They dug themselves a big hole Wednesday by shooting just 32.1 percent in the first half. They were particularly off the mark from 3-point range, where they made just 1-for-9 after combining for 27 3-pointers the previous two games. Purdue took advantage of IUs cold start and reeled off 10 straight points in the early stages to take a 17-6 lead. It was a 15-point spread, 30-15, before the Hoosiers finally began making some shots. They were within eight late in the half, but Scotts bucket beat the buzzer to give the Boilermakers a 38-27 cushion at halftime. The second half started out much like the first. The first eight points were scored by Purdue, with Dakota Mathias basket prompting an IU timeout with the visitors trailing by 19 less than three minutes in. Again the lead was trimmed to a manageable 10 before another 8-0 Purdue run essentially put the game away. Smothermans layup off a steal made it a 62-44 game, and the margin was at least 14 over the final eight minutes. Game Notes Purdue leads the all-time series 114-88 ...

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- The Phoenix Coyotes have won three in a row for the first time in 4 1/2 months, and theyve done it just in time for the stretch run to the playoffs. Radim Vrbata and Antoine Vermette scored first-period goals and the Phoenix Coyotes held on for a 2-1 win over the Florida Panthers on Thursday night. Coyotes goalie Mike Smith had a shutout until Chris Gomez scored with 4:08 to play. Smith had 22 saves. The game was no thing of beauty. "They all cant all be masterpieces," Phoenix coach Dave Tippett said. "We got up two goals and we won. Well leave it at that." The victory, coupled with Dallas loss to Philadelphia, put the Coyotes four points ahead of the Stars for the eighth and final playoff spot in the West. Phoenix has won five of six and seven of nine. "Maybe desperation," Vrbata said when asked what was driving the recent success. "We know where we are in the standings and that we need every point we can get. We lost too many games before, games we should have won. " Smiths play has been central to the recent wins and he was strong again Thursday. "Before they got that goal, he was outstanding," Tippett said, "and then he got some after that." There werent many shots, Tippett said, but several were difficult saves. Robert Luongo had 20 saves for the Panthers. The Coyotes scored their first goal on a power play after Floridas Jimmy Hayes was sent to the penalty box for holding. Oliver Ekman-Larssons shot from directly in front of the net glanced off Martin Hanzals skate and was knocked into the net by Vrbata for his 20th goal of the season. Phoenix killed two penalties the rest of the period, then made it 2-0 when Vermette hit the puck innto a virtually empty net off a deflected shot by Mike Stone. Logan Thomas Jersey. Stones shot bounced off Luongos midsection and right to Vermette. Luongo complained that the goal should have been disallowed because Mikkel Boedker had knocked the goalie to the ice, creating an opening for the goal, but the score stood and it was 2-0 after two. "I think they missed it," Florida coach Peter Horachek said. ".. It should have been an interference call. A lot of those things are going to happen and youre going to have to deal with them, everybody else does, but when you look back at it, it makes it 1-1." Luongo said hed have to look at the tape, but added "its tough to do my job when I end up in the corner." Tippett said Boedker was shoved in to the goalie. "Theyre guy pushed," Tippett said. "I thought it was the right call. Boedker wouldnt have been in there if he hadnt got pushed." "If he hadnt been shoved, he wouldnt have been in there," Tippett said. It was Vermettes team-leading 22nd goal. Hanzal and Ekman-Larsson got assists on Vrbatas goal, Stone and Boedker on the second. Gomezs goal, his first in 36 games, came on a wrist shot that fluttered past Smith. The three-game winning streak is Phoenixs longest since it won five in a row from Oct. 26 to Nov. 5.
