Chris Kramer doesn't know how many steals he has during his Purdue career.
He doesn't remember the first one. He doesn't really have a "best" one.
But it's likely he won't forget the one that put him in Purdue's record books at No. 1.
Entering Sunday, all Kramer knew was that he needed one steal to become the school's all-time leader.
He got it with about 4:25 left in the first half against Michigan State. Kramer was guarding Draymond Green on the perimeter and read point guard Kalin Lucas. Lucas tried to pass to Green, but Kramer reached around, tipped the pass and took the ball in for a right-handed dunk.
Here's how Kramer described the play:
"As soon as I saw Kalin Lucas throw it, I was like, 'I'm getting this one,' " Kramer said before Monday's practice. "Then I was just kind of batting it and then got a dribble, and I was like, 'You've got to dunk it. You've got to make an exclamation point on this.'
"I was afraid Draymond Green was going to foul me but got lucky he had two fouls at that point, so he didn't want to get No. 3. So I was able to be the (steals) leader dunking the one to go ahead."
Coach Matt Painter praised Kramer after the game for his hard work and intelligence on the defensive end.
"He's got great anticipation. He understands angles. He understands when guys' show weakness in terms of getting in the passing lane," Painter said. "I think his improvement really lies in being solid defensively. He's been put in different situations the past couple games having to guard bigger people, but for the most part, he's had a very, very good career and helped us win a lot of games."
