Johnson's 12 points leads Purdue at halftime

Purdue is shooting only 39 percent, but leads Minnesota 29-26 at halftime.

The Gophers have used a zone defense to stifle the Boilermakers, who are only 3 of 12 on three-pointers. Lewis Jackson has made both of his three-pointers.

JaJuan Johnson's 12 points lead Purdue.

D.J. Byrd got the start in place of Ryne Smith against Minnesota's big lineup. But in a surprise twist, Patrick Bade made a first-half appearance for Purdue. Bade has been largely unused since Big Ten play started, but he provided eight quality minutes against the Gophers, playing surprisingly tough, grabbing three rebounds and getting a block and a steal.
