Michigan shut out Purdue over the final 1:55 of regulation, and Lewis Jackson missed a game-winning three point attempt in the final seconds to end the game in Michigan's favor.
Sophomore guard Tim Hardaway led Michigan with 19 points while Jordan Morgan (12 points on 5-7 shooting) and Stu Douglass (12 points on 5-8 shooting) contributed with extremely efficient offensive performances.
With the win, the Wolverines improve to 16-5 overall and 6-2 in the Big Ten, while the Boilermakers fall to 14-7 overall and 4-4 in league play.
Purdue was led by Jackson (17 points and 8 assists) and Robbie Hummel (16 points, 5 rebounds, 6 assists).
The Wolverines get a few days off now to gear up for a huge three-game stretch, which starts on Sunday when they visit the 17-3 Ohio St. Buckeyes. After that, they host the 16-4 Indiana Hoosiers and then go back on the road for a matchup against the 16-4 Michigan St. Spartans.
