Iowa falls at #6 Purdue

Posted:

WEST LAFAYETTE, INDIANA (AP) -- JaJuan Johnson had 21 points and 10 rebounds, and No. 6 Purdue beat Iowa 63-40 on Saturday for its seventh straight win.

E'Twaun Moore had 11 points and Chris Kramer anchored the defense with four steals for the Boilermakers (21-3, 9-3 Big Ten).

Johnson was held to six points in the first meeting with the Hawkeyes, a 67-56 Purdue win in Iowa City.

Cully Payne scored 11 points and Jarryd Cole had 10 for the Hawkeyes (9-17, 3-10). Matt Gatens, Iowa's top scorer this season, finished with three points on 1-of-10 shooting.

Iowa was trying to build momentum after beating Northwestern 78-65 in its previous game. Instead, the Hawkeyes shot 30 percent and posted their lowest point total of the season.

It was the fewest points Purdue has allowed in Big Ten play and its largest victory margin in a conference game.
