NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J. – No. 15 Purdue (21-7, 11-6 B1G) served Rutgers (5-24, 0-17 B1G) off the floor with 11 service aces to sweep the Scarlet Knights 25-19, 25-11, 25-18 and earn its fourth straight victory at College Ave. Gym. The Boilermakers were locked in on defense, out-digging the Scarlet Knights 40-29 and holding the opposition to a .043 hitting percentage on the night. 

Five Boilermakers registered six digs or more with
