No. 11 Purdue rips Iowa

Jan 9, 2011 - 11:08 PM West Lafayette, IN (Sports Network) - Ryne Smith hit six three-pointers and finished with a game-high 18 points, as 11th-ranked Purdue earned an easy 75-52 win over Iowa in Big Ten action at Mackey Arena.

JaJuan Johnson netted 16 points and E'Twaun Moore ended with 11 points and seven rebounds for Purdue (15-1, 4-0 Big Ten), which has won 10 straight games since suffering a 65-54 loss to Richmond on November 27. Kelsey Barlow chipped in 11 points in the victory.

Matt Gatens scored a team-best 13 points for Iowa (7-8, 0-3), which has dropped three in a row. Melsahn Basabe had eight points in defeat.

Purdue scored the first 11 points of the contest to gain control. Then, a long jumper from Lewis Jackson and three-pointer by Smith stretched the Boilermakers' lead to 21-8 with 8:29 left in the half.

"We obviously had a good start. Our guys were ready to play," Purdue head coach Matt Painter said. "I thought we did a good job in the first half of not letting them shoot threes."

Six straight points from Barlow gave the hosts a 29-12 cushion with 4:20 remaining, but Iowa closed the first half with consecutive baskets to cut its deficit to 34-20 heading into the locker room.

Eric May drained a three to open the second half and get the Hawkeyes within 11, but they didn't get any closer the rest of the way.

Smith answered with a three-ball on Purdue's next possession and Barlow's three-point play capped an 8-0 run for a 50-29 game with 14:16 left.

Jackson put his squad ahead 63-37 with a jumper with 8:22 remaining and Purdue maintained a comfortable lead the rest of the way.
