Post  Admin on Wed Dec 29, 2010 1:29 am

After jumping out to an early 19-3 lead over Michigan, the Boilermakers struggled, allowing the Wolverines to charge back for a 26-25 advantage late in the first half.
Purdue, though, scored the final five points of the first half and then outscored Michigan by 19 points in the second period on its way to an easy 80-57 victory to open the Big Ten season.
JaJuan Johnson scored 22 points and E’Twaun Moore added 21 for Purdue (12-1, 1-0 Big Ten). The Boilermakers also got 17 points from Ryne Smith and 10 from Terone Johnson.
Purdue also dominated the glass, pulling down 31 percent of its missed shots and 78 percent of Michigan’s.
Michigan (10-3, 0-1) was led by Stu Douglass with 15 points, but no other Wolverine reached double figures. Michigan shot 38 percent, compared to Purdue’s 49 percent, and turned the ball over 14 times.

The Wolverines went ahead on a dunk by Jon Horford, but JaJuan Johnson hit two free throws and Smith ended the half with a 3-pointer.
The Boilermakers stretched the advantage to 38-28 early in the second half, and Michigan struggled to put together a sustained run on offense.
Purdue used several fast-break dunks to key a 17-2 run that turned the game into a rout in the final eight minutes.
