Purdue men lead at halftime

No. 19 Purdue didn't have a great first half against Indiana State.

But JaJuan Johnson sure did, and that's been enough so far.

Johnson made 9 of 14 shots and has 25 points for the Boilermakers, who lead 32-30.

Purdue's only other points in the half were scored by D.J. Byrd (four) and Ryne Smith (three).

The Boilermakers shot 11 of 31 in the half -- so that's only 2 of 17 without JaJuan Johnson.

But Indiana State managed to shoot only 37 percent and had 10 turnovers.
