EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) -- E'Twaun Moore scored a season-high 25 points and JaJuan Johnson added 19, lifting No. 6 Purdue to a 76-64 victory over No. 10 Michigan State on Tuesday night.


The Boilermakers (20-3, 8-3) have won six straight, while the Spartans (19-6, 9-3) have lost three in a row to lose their commanding lead in the Big Ten.

Kalin Lucas played after missing a game with a sprained right ankle. He gave Michigan State a three-point lead with 13:16 left in the first half, then Purdue scored twice as much as the Spartans the rest of the first half to take a 47-33 lead.

Michigan State trailed by 18 points early in the second half, but pulled within three with 4½ minutes left.

The Boilermakers held off the rally to snap a nine-game skid at the Breslin Center and reach the 20-win mark for the fourth straight season.

Michigan State's Chris Allen, who scored 21 points, made a 3-pointer to make it 65-62.

Purdue closed the game with an 11-2 run, making the score lopsided as it was for much of the night.

The loss dropped Michigan State into a first-place tie with Illinois, which won at Wisconsin on Tuesday.

Purdue's win puts it in a second-place tie with No. 13 Ohio State.

The Spartans' 12-point loss at home was their biggest since Illinois beat them 81-68 four years ago, and snapped their 18-game winning streak there since losing to Penn State more than a year ago.
