Purdue wasn't at full strength with freshman standout Caleb Swanigan on the bench. The Boilermakers weren't at full attention, either, considering how many times Minnesota dribbled by them for layups and dunks. Vince Edwards was in fine shooting form, though, and that was enough...
Purdue's P.J. Thompson played big Thursday night when his taller, better known teammates needed him most. Twice, he drew critical fouls on Ohio State. Twice, he made the two free throws. And twice, he delivered devastating 3-pointers. On a night No. 22 Purdue struggled...
No. 22 Purdue did just what it had to do against injury-ravaged and undersized Rutgers. It pounded the ball inside and came away with a record-setting performance that rewrote parts of Purdue and Rutgers history. Freshman Caleb Swanigan had 12 points and 13 rebounds, and the...
Purdue followed coach Matt Painter's instructions Wednesday night. Vince Edwards was aggressive. Isaac Haas was tough. And with those two playing well, their teammates exposed the open looks they created. Edwards scored 19 points, Haas had 14 and Caleb Swanigan finished with 13...
Purdue's top-ranked defense couldn't find a way to stop a struggling Illinois team and juniors Malcolm Hill and Kendrick Nunn on Sunday. The No. 20 Boilermakers (14-3, 2-2 Big Ten) came into the game giving up a stingy 35 percent shooting. But Illinois (9-8, 1-3 Big Ten) shot 54...
Purdue's Rapheal Davis spent all week contemplating the mistakes he made in last weekend. On Thursday night, he made the corrections. The Boilermakers' defensive stopper scored 16 points, had six assists and five rebounds and A.J. Hammons added 17 points and four blocks to help...

Purdue was struggling from behind the arc and was in danger of losing a second straight game after winning its first 11. Then A.J. Hammons took over, scoring 15 of his 21 points in the second half to rally the 14th-ranked Boilermakers to a 68-55 win over Vanderbilt on Tuesday...
