WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. – Purdue figured out how to slow the pace – and still score a little, too, Wednesday night.
Terone Johnson finished with a career-high 25 points, and D.J. Byrd scored nine of his 15 during a key 19-3 second-half run, sending the Boilermakers past No. 11 Illinois, 68-61.
Byrd sealed the game with a three-point play with 20.1 seconds to go.
