Purdue Beats Northwestern 87-77

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) — Robbie Hummel scored a season-high 27 points and pulled down a game-high nine rebounds Sunday as Purdue snapped Northwestern’s three-game winning streak with an 87-77 victory.

Hummel was one of five Boilermakers to score in double figures. D.J. Byrd added 20 points and Ryne Smith contributed 14 for Purdue (16-9, 6-6 Big Ten).

Terone Johnson scored 11 points and Kelsey Barlow added 10 for Purdue.

John Shurna scored 30 points for the Wildcats (15-9, 5-7) and Reggie Hearn had 16, including 11 in the second half. Hearn’s final basket, a layup with 10:13 to go, gave Northwestern a 48-47 lead. But Johnson’s 3-pointer put the Boilermakers ahead to stay 60-57 with 6:21 remaining.
