Purdue gives 8th-ranked Michigan State historic 71-42 beating

Trevion Williams scored 16 points and Purdue relied on a staunch defense Sunday to upset No. 8 Michigan State 71-42.

The Boilermakers (10-7, 4-3 Big Ten) snapped a two-game skid by picking up their second win this season over a top-10 foe.

It's also Purdue's second victory over a Top 10 foe this season and its 15th consecutive home win over a Big Ten opponent.

Cassius Winston finished with 10 points to lead the Spartans (13-4, 5-1) but also had nine turnovers as Michigan State's eight-game winning streak ended. The state of MI comes to West Lafayette after winning 8 games in a row and is much more like the favorite who won the Big Ten they started the year with. 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.

This time, though there was a modest comeback, the game never got away from Purdue (10-7, 3-3). Winston shot 4-for-13 from the paint and went 0-for-5 from the three-point line. Time will tell whether coach Matt Painter has a fix - or whether it was merely an aberration.

Purdue hit Michigan State with an early offensive barrage, jumping ahead 19-4 on a 3-pointer by Boudreaux. They were completely out of sync against Purdue's defense.

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. They were beaten physically and were careless with the ball.

Speaking of Purdue's defense, it has been the strongest aspect of the team this season so far.

The Boilermakers improved to 10-8 all-time against ranked Michigan State teams at Mackey Arena. If Winston has a break, second and third goal scorers Xavier Tillman and Aaron Henry will have to compete for MSU to stay in the game. As a team the Spartans committed 18, their most this entire season and allowed Purdue to capitalize with 21 points off of turnovers. The Boilermakers have only lost once at home this season and did not lose a single game at Mackey previous year.

Michigan State: "I laugh every day with my staff about how everybody wants to be the head coach", Izzo said. Sasha Stefanovic and Eric Hunter Jr. each chipped in 10 points in the win and Rocket Watts scored 10 points for the Spartans.

"It was tough", Winston said.

The Spartans will try to rebound at home Friday against Wisconsin.
