Purdue (20-10, 10-7 Big Ten) broke away from a 37-32 halftime lead as the Boilermakers' three seniors; Hummel, Lewis Jackson, and Ryne Smith scored 24 of the first 29 points of the second half while sending the Nittany Lions (12-18, 4-13 Big Ten) to their ninth straight conference loss, all by double digits. Jackson scored all 12 of his points after halftime and was 6 of 6 from the field, while Smith connected on three 3-pointers in the second half.

D.J.
