Purdue's physical defense and locked-in three-point shooting dug the Spartans to the ground in only their second road game in the Big Ten this season. They produced their lowest point total of the season and were held nearly 40 points below their season scoring average of 81.3.

The Boilermakers (10-7, 4-3), meanwhile, extended their home winning streak against conference foes to 15 and now have two victories over top-10 teams this season - both by 29-point margins.

"I just thought they never really quite got into a rhythm", Painter said. The state of MI comes to West Lafayette after winning 8 games in a row and is much more like the favorite who won the Big Ten they started the year with.

While Tom Izzo's team has racked up 13 wins to just three losses, they haven't been almost as strong against the spread. Trevion Williams, who finished with 16 points, helped fuel another big run, 13-2, that made it 34-14 with 3:23 left in the first half.

And even though the Spartans scored eight of the final 11 points in the half to cut the deficit to 37-20, they couldn't build on that momentum then. They were completely out of sync against Purdue's defense.

In terms of Purdue's defense, it was the strongest aspect of the team so far this season.

The unranked Boilermakers (10-7) beat the No. 8 Spartans 71-42 Sunday at Mackey Arena in West Lafayette, Ind.

Michigan State: Committed seven turnovers before forcing the first by the Boilermakers.

It wasn't until sophomore Aaron Henry found himself hungry to mark his first points of the game that he sunk the first three for the Spartans, before being called for this third foul shortly after, contributing to another factor that led to the Spartan defeat: foul trouble. In the front court, Xavier Tillman is putting up 14.3 points and bringing down 10.2 rebounds per contest.

Michigan State ranks first in assists per game (19.8) while Purdue ranks 124th in assists allowed per game (12.5).

Evan Boudreaux scored 11 points and grabbed five rebounds for the Boilermakers.

Oturu was also named co-Big Ten player of the week on December 30 after he posted the first 20-point, 20-rebound performance for the Gophers since Tom Kondla in 1966. They won 19 straight between January 1968 and February 1970. The Boilermakers have lost only once at home this season and haven't lost a single game at Mackey past year.

Purdue faces another daunting challenge Saturday, at No. 12 Maryland.
