BLOOMINGTON, Ind. — Chloe Moore-McNeil scored 12 of her career-high 22 points in a game-changing third quarter, Mackenize Holmes of Gorham became Indiana’s all-time leading scorer, and 14th-ranked Indiana went on to defeat Purdue 95-62 on Sunday.

Moore-McNeil’s 3-pointer capped an 11-0 run that gave the Hoosiers a 55-34 lead four minutes into the second half. She also had 3-pointers on Indiana’s next two possessions and then converted a three-point play, finishing the quarter 4 for 4 with her team on top 72-46.

Holmes got the limelight in the fourth quarter. Her layup midway through the fourth gave her 2,365 points, one more than Tyra Buss (2014-18). Holmes left the game to a standing ovation at the next dead ball.

The game between in-state rivals drew 13,304 fans, the third-largest women’s crowd ever at Assembly Hall.

Sara Scalia scored 19 points for the Hoosiers (20-3, 11-2 Big Ten Conference). Holmes finished with 17, and Lexus Bargesser had 12 with nine rebounds.

Citron made a 3-pointer to give Notre Dame a 91-90 lead and later hit a fastbreak layup to tie it at 93. The score was tied at 94 through much of the final minute before Citron drew a foul on Ta’Niya Latson with 4 seconds left. Citron made both free throws for a 96-94 lead. Watson was credited with a steal when she knocked the ball away on the FSU inbounds play, and Hannah Hidalgo scooped it up, was fouled and made 2 free throws to finish it.
