WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) -- Draymond Green had 20 points and 10 rebounds, and Austin Thornton scored a career-high 17 points to lead No. 7 Michigan State past short-handed Purdue 76-62 Sunday.
By winning their second straight in West Lafayette and sweeping the Boilermakers this season, the Spartans (22-5, 11-3 Big Ten) took a one-game lead in the conference title chase.
Purdue (17-10, 7-7) had a three-game winning streak snapped. Robbie Hummel scored 24 points to lead the Boilermakers, who played without starting guard Kelsey Barlow and swingman D.J. Byrd. Both were disciplined after a Friday night incident outside a local bar.
The Boilers missed their scorers.
After taking a 38-35 halftime lead, Purdue started the second half by going 1 of 23 from the field and Michigan State took control with a 27-8 run.
