Hummel leads No. 4 Purdue past Illinois

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. — Purdue’s Big Three has proved to be difficult to contain.

When that three becomes four, the Boilermakers are nearly unbeatable.

Robbie Hummel, JaJuan Johnson and E’Twaun Moore stepped aside for Keaton Grant late against Illinois on Saturday. The senior guard scored 10 of his season-high 15 points in the final 6:06 to help the fourth-ranked Boilermakers beat the Fighting Illini, 75-65, for their ninth straight win.

It was the second straight game in which Grant has scored a season high, following his 13-point effort at No. 9 Ohio State. He struggled at times this season, even losing his starting job, but he was ready when called upon.
