Austin Parkinson dished out a career high 12 assists as Purdue defeated Penn State 62-47. Ivan Kartelo added a double-double with 13 points and 10 rebounds. Teague led Purdue in scoring with 14. Buscher and McKnight each scored 12 points. After playing a less then spectacular 30 minutes, Purdue took over the game in the last 10 or so minutes of the game after PSU tied the game. Purdue's 3 starting guards all played over 30 minutes as did Kartelo. Buscher, who seems to be at his best coming off the bench, played 27 minutes. Purdue returns to action on Saturday @ Michigan.
