Recap


PURDUE 83, NEBRASKA 65: Robbie Hummel scored a season-high 29 points to lead five players in double figures and the host Boilermakers got a much-needed Big Ten Conference win.

The trio of Hummel, D.J. Byrd and Ryne Smith combined for all 13 3-pointers as the Boilermakers (18-10, 8-7 Big Ten) shot 54.5 percent from the field and moved into a fifth-place tie with rival Indiana.

Byrd, who served a one-game suspension for his involvement in an incident at a West Lafayette, Ind., nightclub last week and sat out Sunday's loss to No. 6 Michigan State, came off the bench to score 15 points, hitting 5 of 8 from 3-point range, while Smith tallied 12 points on four 3-pointers.

Lewis Jackson added 13 points and five assists and Terone Johnson chipped in 11 points and five rebounds for Purdue, which led 47-30 at halftime and by as many as 23 in the second half.

Bo Spencer scored 19 points for Nebraska (12-14, 4-11 Big Ten), which shot 51.9 percent.
