No. 13 Michigan State beats Purdue 94-79

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) — Purdue did everything it could to hang with No. 13 Michigan State. It didn’t matter what the Boilermakers did, the Spartans were just too much.

“We were trying to stay with them and we obviously weren’t,” coach Matt Painter said after Purdue’s 94-79 loss Thursday night. “We played them on the wrong day. I wish we would have played them last Sunday.”

The Boilermakers went into the game still on a high from last weekend’s 82-64 win over Indiana. The Spartans spoiled it with a school-record 17 3-pointers and it was a rough start of three games in six days for Purdue.

Kendall Stephens scored 19 points and Ronnie Johnson added 17 for the Boilermakers (15-11, 5-8 Big Ten), who have lost two of three.
