Purdue smothers No. 8 Michigan State in 71-42 victory

What to expect from Michigan State the rest of this season

During their last five games, the Boilermakers have scored an average of 71.2 points per game (2.4 above their season average) and allowed an average of 71.4 points per game (10.7 above their season average).

Last year's top two teams in the Big Ten, Michigan State and Purdue, are competing for the first time this season.

The Boilermakers also held Spartans star Cassius Winston to 10 points and five assists. The Spartans (13-4) were the only undefeated team in the Big Ten game. Last season, on January 27, 2019, they fell behind by 23 points in the first half, cut it to four late but eventually lost, 73-63. The Spartans cut the lead to 11 points in the second half, but were never able to close the gap. "I thought (Purdue coach) Matt (Painter) did one hell of a job".

Purdue hit Michigan State with an early offensive barrage, jumping ahead 19-4 on a 3-pointer by Boudreaux.

Michigan State: Clearly, the Spartans are better than they demonstrated Sunday.

But back-to-back losses to end the season, first a 56-27 loss to chief rival Ohio State at home, then a 35-16 loss to Alabama in the Citrus Bowl, had MI feeling a familiar way. Slowing Winston down will be the top priority for Purdue's defense.

Purdue: The Boilermakers' usually strong defense might have been at its best against the Spartans. They were beaten physically and were careless with the ball.

Oturu went down with a left shoulder injury early in the second half, but he returned to the game after a few minutes to help the Gophers finish off their fourth straight home victory.

Michigan State suffered its worst loss ever as a top-10 team.

Tyler Harris finished with 17 points for the Tigers (13-3, 2-1 American Athletic Conference), who held USF (8-9, 1-3) scoreless from the field over the final 6:37. The Boilermakers have only lost once at home this season and did not lose a single game at Mackey past year.

Michigan State: "I laugh every day with my staff about how everybody wants to be the head coach", Izzo said.

Purdue: "Collectively, we had to build a wall (around Winston)", guard Nojel Eastern said.

The Spartans next receive Wisconsin in another Big Ten fight at 7 p.m. EST Friday and Purdue travel to Maryland at 2:00 p.m. Saturday.
