No. 25 Rutgers holds on to beat Purdue 70-63

PISCATAWAY, NJ (AP) Steve Pikiell will get a reprieve from the emails about his team's poor foul shooting from disgruntled fans.

Caleb McConnell was a perfect 12-for-12 from the free throw line en route to 16 points, as No. 25 Rutgers nearly blew a 17-point lead before holding off Purdue, 70-63 on Tuesday night.

"I love the way we finished the game from the foul line, so I won't be getting emails tomorrow about free throw shooting so that's a good thing for me and I look forward to that," said Pikiell, whose team is shooting 64% from the foul line this season. "But these guys made big plays down the stretch you have to do that in this league. Every game is like that and you see it every time you turn on the Big Ten Network."
