JaJuan Johnson scored 17 points to lead No. 19 Purdue over No. 6 Michigan State, 72-54, last night and move the host Boilermakers within one game of the Spartans in the Big Ten standings. E'Twaun Moore scored 13 points and Robbie Hummel added 11 for Purdue in his first start since missing three games with a hairline fracture in his lower back. The Boilermakers (20-6, 9-4), who have five games left, won their third straight. The Boilermakers lost to Duke and Oklahoma early in the season, and entered this game without a win over any member of the current Top 25. "Tonight, we showed we can play with the best in the country," Purdue guard Chris Kramer said.

Twelfth-seeded Southwest Missouri State's beating fourth-seeded Tennessee wasn't a total surprise, but the 30-point margin certainly was. In yesterday's second-round game of the NCAA East Regional at the Charlotte Coliseum, Danny Moore, a 6-foot-11 senior, scored 25 points, and the Bears shot 52 percent and committed only six turnovers to win, 81-51, and become the first team in school history to win two NCAA tournament games. Southwest Missouri (22-10) held Tennessee (21-9)

Carson Cunningham is finally fitting in with his Purdue teammates. Carson scored 18 points, including 12 in succession in the second half, to help No. 9 Purdue hold off visiting Valparaiso, 78-70, last night in the opening round of the Boilermaker Invitational. Carson, a junior, transferred to Purdue from Oregon State, where he was runner-up for the Pacific 10 Conference freshman of the year award. "I got a nice little rhythm going. It felt good to finally help my teammates," Carson said.

Mateen Cleaves and Antonio Smith just didn't go along with Purdue's plan. Cleaves led Michigan State with 25 points, while Smith grabbed 15 rebounds as the visiting Spartans upset the fifth-ranked Boilermakers, 74-57, last night in the Big Ten opener for both teams. "Our plan was to keep the ball out of Cleaves's hands and keep Smith off the boards, and we didn't do either of those things," Purdue coach Gene Keady said. Cleaves was 9-for-18 from the field and 6-for-9 from the free throw line while adding eight assists for the Spartans (8-3)

The country's most prolific college quarterback needed only 12 more yards yesterday to become forever known as the Happy Valley Heartbreaker. Twelve more measly yards on top of the 379 he already had accumulated with his golden arm, and Purdue's Drew Brees could have sent Penn State home with its dreams in tatters. And Brees had four downs to do it in the tense final seconds. So how much angst was shooting through the Nittany Lions? "That was just way too close," Penn State linebacker LaVar Arrington said, shaking his head.

Too many players. Too many big players. Too many good big players. With both teams possessing good size and physical styles of play, last night's Midwest Regional semifinal between second-seeded Purdue and third-seeded Stanford figured to be one of the NCAA Tournament's more rugged games. It lived up to expectations. But if a team is going get into a street fight, it always helps to have more big bodies than the other guys. Already fielding an imposing frontcourt in forwards Peter Sauer and Mark Madsen and center Tim Young, Stanford got a career bench contribution from freshman forward Jarron Collins to muscle Purdue out of the tournament, 67-59, at the Kiel Center.

If you were looking for buzzer-beating, tension-inducing, memory-creating NCAA basketball, the Midwest Regional was not the one to attend yesterday. It was almost like looking at four Notre Dame games. Well, not that bad. The four first-round games were decided by a total of 64 points. Only the Kansas State-La Salle game was in any doubt in the second half. Purdue was workmanlike in its 94-79 win over Fairleigh Dickinson. Memphis State, Purdue's next opponent tomorrow, had one awesome stretch and beat Baylor, 75-60.

Never mind that it was his 400th win with the Boilermakers, Purdue coach Gene Keady cared only that his team won. "I didn't even remember 400 wins was coming up. I just wanted us to play smart, play hard and play together," Keady said after the 14th-ranked Boilermakers won, 62-49, yesterday over visiting Eastern Illinois. Keady is now 438-188 in his career and 400-169 at Purdue. Greg McQuay led Purdue (6-1) with 19 points and nine rebounds. Brian Cardinal added 10 points for the Boilermakers.

This year's NCAA Women's Final Four is a different experience for Purdue coach Lin Dunn. "I realized when we qualified for the Final Four, one of the sacrifices I had to make was giving up being all-lobby," Dunn said, tongue in cheek, while preparing her Boilermakers for the trip from Indiana. A veteran of the lobby scene at the annual Women's Basketball Coaches Association convention, Dunn will be at courtside all week instead of holding court for her colleagues. Incredibly, when Purdue (29-4)

IF THERE were a mess of hard-shell crabs on the table and Jack Dempsey was present, you would have been advised to step aside. "My brother could eat a bushel of hard-shell crabs all by himself," said his sister, Patricia George. "He would have cooked them himself. He loved to cook. " Jack's reported consumption of this sea delicacy might have been slightly exaggerated, but it testifies to Jack's love of life, and his appreciation of its bounty. John "Jack" Dempsey Jr., onetime boilermaker for the old Philadelphia Naval Shipyard, a security officer at Philadelphia International Airport and a Marine Corps veteran, died Oct. 19 of complications of dementia.

NEW YORK - If you want an early evaluation of a Villanova team with youth and a number of question marks, say the Wildcats are feisty and resilient. In the semifinals Thursday night of the 2K Sports Classic benefiting the Wounded Warrior Project, the Wildcats blew a 10-point lead to Purdue, then trailed by eight with a shade over two minutes left in regulation before making all that up and nearly winning on a tip-in that came an eye blink after the buzzer. But in overtime, Villanova played with steely determination and got a pair of three-point baskets from James Bell to defeat the Boilermakers, 89-81, and earn a berth in Friday night's championship game against Alabama.

NEW YORK – There were times Thursday night against Purdue when Villanova looked like a veteran team in mid-season form, and other times when the Wildcats looked like exactly what they are – a young team just starting out a season and trying to answer some questions. But just when it looked as if the Wildcats' inexperience and mistakes would cost them in the semifinals of the 2K Classic benefiting Wounded Warrior Project, they remembered something else, that they are a feisty and resilient team that plays all the way to the final buzzer.

Devin Gardner ran for a 1-yard touchdown in overtime Saturday and Michigan's defense responded with a stop to give the Wolverines a wild, 38-31, win over Northwestern in Ann Arbor, Mich. The Wolverines (7-3, 5-1 Big Ten) barely prevented the Wildcats (3-3, 7-3) from winning consecutive games in Ann Arbor for the first time since the 1934 and 1936 seasons. Wisconsin 62, Indiana 14 - Montee Ball and James White ran for a combined 359 yards and five touchdowns to put the Badgers' Big Ten title hopes back on track with a pounding of the host Hoosiers.

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. - It's worth mentioning that Penn State was upset over its loss to Ohio State last weekend. But if you mention it, you would have head coach Bill O'Brien holding up both hands as a stop sign. Several times during his a teleconference on Wednesday, O'Brien declined to talk about the previous game, insisting his team had moved past its 35-23 loss to the Buckeyes and was looking squarely at Purdue, its opponent Saturday at Ross-Ade Stadium. The Nittany Lions followed their coach's lead and kept the attention on the Boilermakers.

Tommy Rees came off the bench to lead Notre Dame on a winning, last-minute drive Saturday as the No. 22 Irish got a 27-yard field goal from Kyle Brindza with seven seconds left and beat Purdue, 20-17, in South Bend, Ind. Rees, who was suspended for the opener last week because he had been involved in a skirmish with police at a party in May, relieved starter Everett Golson late in the fourth quarter. Purdue (1-1) had tied the game at 17 when Caleb TerBush threw a 15-yard TD pass to Antavian Edison with 2 minutes, 12 seconds left, the score set up by Josh Johnson's recovery of a Golson fumble.

Purdue quarterback Caleb TerBush took the final snap, sprinted to the sideline, and handed the football to coach Danny Hope. Perhaps empowered by getting a contract extension recently, Hope made the gutsy decision to go for two onside kicks in the first half, and both gambles paid off for the Boilermakers in a 37-32 win over Western Michigan (7-6) on Tuesday night in the Little Caesars Pizza Bowl in Detroit. Raheem Mostert returned a kickoff 99 yards for a touchdown, third-string running back Reggie Pegram scored the first two TDs of his career, and Carson Wiggs made two field goals to give the Boilermakers a 27-15 lead at halftime.

Purdue extended head football coach Danny Hope 's contract for two additional years, through Dec. 31, 2016, the school announced Friday. Details are being finalized. Purdue athletic director Morgan Burke said in a statement that Hope has done a good job of developing players on and off the field. Purdue went 5-7 under Hope in 2009, then 4-8 in an injury-filled 2010. The Boilermakers struggled early this season, with early losses to Rice and Notre Dame. Purdue rallied and returned to postseason play for the first time in four years.
