Purdue deals Blue second straight loss

The Wolverines hammered away at
Purdue for 39 minutes last night.
But Brian Cardinal, who gets
knocked down but gets back up again
more than the lead singer of
Chumbawamba, sank a free throw and
Purdue 89 couple of
3 Michigan 82 during a
minute to help hold the Wolverines off.
The Boilermakers hung on to win, 89-
82, before 13,242 in Crisler Arena.
The final 30 seconds degenerated
into a flurry of Michigan 3-pointers, all
of which bounced harmlessly off the
rim, and none of which did anything to
cut into Purdue's lead.
"I'm so happy to win on the road,"
Purdue coach Gene Keady said. "We're
still in the race for the league champi-
onship." Purdue is 6-2 in the Big Ten,
and 18-4 overall. Michigan dropped to
Both teams traded baskets for most
of the second half, but the big blow
came with three minutes remaining,
when Purdue guard Alan Eldridge
nailed a 3-pointer from the corner in
front of his bench. The bomb upped the
Boilermakers' lead to 79-75, and
Michigan was forced to play catch-up
the rest of the way with both Robert
Traylor and Maceo Baston playing (sur-
prise!) with four fouls.
After Purdue tallied a layup and a
few free throws, even Louis Bullock's
leaning trey from behind the arc with
just over 40 seconds left only cut the
deficit to six, and after Cardinal's free
throw, Michigan was unable to connect
on a host of 3-point attempts as the
final seconds ticked away.
The Boilermakers were led by guard
Jaraan Cornell, who poured in 28
points on a night of 10-of-15 shooting.
Brad Miller (19 points), Cardinal (18)
and Chad Austin (15) each managed
double digits. For Michigan, Bullock
had 18 and Traylor had 17 while shoot-
ing 8-for-13, but the Wolverines were
forced to go to the perimeter once they
fell behind in the game's final minute.
The most telling statistic of the
evening came at the free throw line,
where Purdue made 21 of 26 attempts,
and Michigan was just 6-for-8.
"You know I can't say anything about
the officiating," Michigan coach Brian
Ellerbe said. "But that's a factor. If
you've got two eyes and anything
between your ears, you can make judg-
ment on that."
Purdue closed a five-point Michigan
lead to a 50-50 contest with about 16
minutes to play. Then Alan Eldridge
stole a Baston pass and raced the length
of the floor, beating Baston to the hoop
and stuffing it in the much-taller.
Purdue took a 52-50 lead after the
Eldridge dunk, but on the next play,
Purdue guard Tony Mayfield commit-
ted an unpardonable sin - he fouled
Louis Bullock on a 3-point attempt.
Bullock, of course, sank all three free
throws, and Michigan retook the lead.
The teams traded baskets and the
lead for the rest of the game, and with
under four minutes to play, Brad
Miller's free throw gave the
Boilermakers a 76-75 lead, setting the
stage for the wild finale. But Purdue
wasn't nearly so composed in the early
going - Michigan led, 41-37, at the

said of his halftime speech. "I severely

some points from its backcourt.
Despite Michigan's 41-37 halftime lead, the Boilermakers managed to outrace the Wolverines in the second half and win the
game, 89-82, at Crisler Arena last night.
