MSU-Purdue early second half musings: Boilermakers tougher than expected

BRESLIN CENTER — Michigan State played carelessly at times in the first half, but this was a 36-30 game at the break (moments ago) mostly because Purdue is playing an attacking style of basketball and doing so with confidence.

It helps Purdue that D.J. Byrd scored 11 points in the first 10 minutes, hitting 5 of 7 shots. He’s the complementary piece the Boilermakers need consistently to be competitive in the Big Ten.

Sorry to cut it off here. Internet issues at halftime led to a late start. More after the game.

    Graham, I noticed that it was 43-41 when Hammonds picked up his fourth foul than we went on a 25-3 run when Harris stole the ball and put that last dagger in. Payne needs to stop finesse it around the hoop and power it down because the ranked teams will have big bodies # 2 and 3 to throw at us. What are your thoughts ?
