Recap


Purdue 65, Nebraska 56: Terone Johnson scored 18 points as the visiting Boilermakers took a big lead and held off a second-half rally by the Cornhuskers.

A.J. Hammons recorded 14 points, eight rebounds and six blocks for Purdue (9-8, 3-2 Big Ten), which has won five of its last seven. D.J. Byrd added 12 points – all on 3-pointers – and Ronnie Johnson had 10 for the Boilermakers, who earned their first road victory in conference play.

Shavon Shields led the way for Nebraska (9-9, 0-5) with a career-high 18 points and eight rebounds. Leading scorer Dylan Talley did not score in the first half and finished with just six points on 3-of-11 shooting from the field for the Cornhuskers.

Purdue received baskets from five different players to score 13 of the first 15 points in the second half to take a 20-point lead. Nebraska responded by cutting its deficit to 51-46 with 6:02 remaining, but Byrd drained 3-pointers on the next two possessions to give the Boilermakers all the cushion they needed.
