Boilermakers top Spartans at home

Post  Admin on Sun Jan 23, 2011 4:36 am

E’Twaun Moore and JaJuan Johnson scored the most points for Purdue. Michigan State coach Tom Izzo said Lewis Jackson did the most damage.

Moore scored 26 points and Johnson had 20, but Jackson added a career-high 19 points for the Boilermakers and got the best of Spartans point guard Kalin Lucas to help No. 14 Purdue beat No. 17 Michigan State 86-76.

Lucas, the 2009 Big Ten player of the year, finished with nine points on 3-for-16 shooting before fouling out in the final minute.

Purdue (17-3, 6-1 Big Ten) remained a game behind No. 1 Ohio State in the conference standings heading into their showdown in Columbus on Tuesday night.

Draymond Green had 21 points, 11 rebounds and six assists and Delvon Roe added 16 points for the Spartans (12-7, 4-3).

The previous meeting between the teams came late last season in Purdue’s first game after Robbie Hummel tore the ACL in his right knee. Michigan State won 53-44 as Johnson and Moore combined to shoot 7 for 27 from the field. This time, Purdue’s top scorers combined to shoot 16 for 31.

Moore had been working his way out of a slump, and Izzo said Durrell Summers’ poor defense helped.
