There was a scoring record broken Sunday afternoon, but it wasn't the one everyone thought. Mackenzie Holmes became Indiana's all-time scoring leader in their 95-62 blowout victory over rival Purdue. She broke the record previously held by Tyra Buss. In addition to breaking the school scoring record, Holmes is undefeated in her career against Purdue.

Caitlin Clark must wait until Thursday to break Kelsey Plum's NCAA scoring record. She'll need eight points against Michigan to break the record.

Here are this week's Big Ten Women's Basketball Power Rankings:

14. Rutgers Scarlet Knights 7-19, 1-12

After a 12-game losing streak, the Scarlet Knights upset Nebraska. After their 28-point loss to the Michigan Wolverines, it looks like Rutgers will begin a new losing streak. They are struggling, and another conference win seems out of reach.

13. Northwestern Wildcats 8-15, 3-9

Speaking of struggling teams, the Wildcats have lost six of its last seven games. Northwestern can't stop anyone, and they can't outscore anyone. The Wildcats play hard and play the game the right way. However, they don't have the players to compete with the teams at the conference's top.

12. Purdue Boilermakers 10-13, 3-9

The Boilermakers were trounced by the Hoosiers on Sunday. Not only that, they are officially the answer to a trivia question. "Who did Mackenzie Holmes break Tyra Buss's scoring record against?" Also, Purdue is 0-10 against Indiana dating back to 2019. Also, they haven't won in Bloomington since 2012. They are a long way from the Caroline Peck era.
