ANN ARBOR, Mich | Poole scores 21, No. 7 Michigan beats No. 19 Purdue 86-57
ANN ARBOR, Mich. — Purdue coach Matt Painter called timeouts twice in the opening 10 minutes, desperately trying to slow Michigan down.
It didn’t work.
Jordan Poole scored 21 points as part of a balanced offense and the seventh-ranked Wolverines were stingy on defense in a 76-57 win over the 19th-ranked Boilermakers on Saturday, routing a third ranked team this season.
Painter said Michigan has an “unbelievable” combination of having a variety of scorers all of whom also play well at the other end of the court.
