Michigan made nine of its first 11 shots in the second half and led 56-41 after a jumper by Walton. It was 60-52 after Hammons dunked on Stauskas and drew a foul with 8:59 to play, but he missed the free throw and Michigan’s Zak Irvin connected from 3-point range at the other end.

Bryson Scott had 12 points for the Purdue and Ronnie Johnson added 11. Jordan Morgan had 11 points and six rebounds for Michigan - another impressive performance for the senior who has helped the Wolverines withstand the loss of star big man Mitch McGary, who is out indefinitely with a back injury.
