Purdue needed a Terone Johnson buzzer beating three pointer to take a slim one point lead over UNC Wilmington heading into halftime. During the final 20 minutes, the Boilermakers dominated and cruised to a 66-40 win.
“We kind of talked about, early on, just doing what we were supposed to do and I don’t think we came out and actually did that,” said Johnson.
“In the second half we came out and got some defensive stops and got good post defense inside and also the guards played good defense. So, that led to points on offense.”
