Purdue cruises past Austin Peay

Nov 24, 2010 - 6:15 AM West Lafayette, IN (Sports Network) - JaJuan Johnson poured in a game-high 21 points with 11 rebounds as 10th-ranked Purdue cruised to an 87-65 victory over Austin Peay in second-round action of the 2010 Chicago Invitational Challenge at Mackey Arena.

E'Twaun Moore added 17 points, six boards and four steals for the Boilermakers (4-0), who advance to the third round on Friday to play Southern Illinois. Ryne Smith posted 11 points and D.J. Byrd connected for 10.

"We had good balance," Purdue head coach Matt Painter said. "We have a lot of depth. It's going to be a different look each time out for our opponent."

Tyshwan Edmondson struck for 16 points, while John Fraley recorded 11 points and a game-high 13 rebounds for the Governors (2-3), who will take on Charleston Southern on Friday.

Anthony Campbell's jumper with 8:49 left in the first half gave Austin Peay its final lead of the contest, 15-14.

Smith drilled a trey on the next trip down the floor to start a 7-2 run, and though the Governors climbed within 21-20 on a Justin Blake three, Terone Johnson sank a pair of free throws which sent Purdue on a 9-2 burst. It ended on a John Hart three-pointer for a 30-22 game.

Johnson polished off a three-point play in the final seconds and Purdue took a 38-30 advantage to the break.

The second half was all Purdue, as Johnson sank a trey less than three minutes in to put the Boilermakers ahead 49-34, then Moore's long-distance bucket gave Purdue a 58-36 lead roughly six minutes in.
