Michigan Vs. Purdue Game Recap: Wolverines Fall To Boilermakers in Big 10 Clash

The Purdue Boilermakers handed No.11 Michigan its first home loss of the season, knocking off the Wolverines, 75-61, at Crisler Arena Saturday night.

Terone Johnson led Purdue with a career-high 22 points, while Robbie Hummel added 17 points and nine rebounds to give the Boilermakers their fourth win in five games. Purdue (19-10,9-7) sat squarely on the bubble heading into Saturday' contest, but gave their at-large profile a major boost with the win on the road.

Michigan shot poorly from the outside, connecting on just nine of 32 three-point field goals. Zach Novak and Trey Burke led the Wolverines with 12 points apiece, while Tim Hardaway, Jr. added 10 points.

With the loss, Michigan likely squandered its chance at a regular season Big 10 championship. The Wolverines are now 11-5 in conference play, two games behind the leader, Michigan State, in the loss column. The Spartans are 12-3 in Big 10 play.
