HOFFMAN ESTATES, Ill. (AP) -- Drey Mingo scored 24 points, and Purdue won its second straight Big Ten tournament championship, beating Michigan State 62-47 on Sunday.
The Boilermakers (24-8) led by as much as 23 in the first half and were up 19 at the break before things got tense down the stretch. The Spartans (24-8) pulled within nine, but back-to-back 3-pointers by Courtney Moses and a key turnover helped preserve the win for Purdue, giving the Boilermakers a league-best nine tournament titles.
Mingo set the tone in the first half, scoring 14 points, and finished with eight rebounds and three blocks in the game.
Moses scored 16, and the Boilermakers shot just under 49 percent.
Jasmine Thomas led Michigan State with 15 points and seven rebounds.
