Donnie Hale had 12 points and five rebounds and D.J. Byrd had 10 points and seven rebounds for the Boilermakers (11-9, 4-3 Big Ten), who have won four of their last five.

Mike Gesell had 18 points to lead the Hawkeyes. Roy Devyn Marble, Aaron White and Melsahn Basabe each scored 12 points for Iowa (13-7, 2-5). Basabe also had eight rebounds.

The Hawkeyes missed two free throws and two field goals, and Byrd extended the lead with two free throws with 30 seconds left to make it 63-59.

The two teams meet again on Feb. 27 in Iowa City.

Terone Johnson scored with 33 seconds left in regulation to tie it at 54 and force overtime.

The Hawkeyes took their first lead of the game when White was fouled on a dunk. He completed the three-point play with 2:57 left to put the Hawkeyes up 51-50. The Boilermakers missed a shot, and White scored again to make it 53-50.

Hale scored on a put-back to get Purdue within one, and Marble’s free throw with 47 seconds left put Iowa up 54-52.

The Boilermakers led most of the game and jumped to a 30-21 lead early in the second half. Byrd hit a 3-pointer and two free throws, and A.J. Hammons, Terone Johnson and Ronnie Johnson each scored for Purdue.

The Boilermakers’ biggest lead, 11 points, came with 8 minutes to play after Ronnie Johnson made a pair of free throws.

It didn’t last long. The Hawkeyes went on an 8-0 run to get back within 45-42. Melsahn Basabe dunked, and Gesell scored twice in the run.

Iowa had just four field goals in the first half, shooting 15 percent. But the Hawkeyes trailed only by three at the break because Purdue wasn’t much better, making just 29 percent from the floor.

The Boilermakers jumped to a 10-2 lead, including two baskets by Hammons. Iowa’s only points in the early going came on two free throws by Anthony Clemmons.

Terone Johnson scored with 2:13 left in the first half for a 19-11 Boilermakers lead. Marble was fouled on a layup and made the free throw, and later made two more free throws to trim Purdue’s halftime lead to 19-16.
