Johnson leads No. 13 Purdue past Michigan

JaJuan Johnson scored 21 points to help No. 13 Purdue beat Michigan 69-59 on Saturday. E'Twaun Moore had 19 points and six assists and Robbie Hummel added 13 points and seven rebounds for the Boilermakers (16-3, 4-3 Big Ten), who won their second straight after a three-game losing streak. DeShawn Sims led the Wolverines (10-9, 3-4) with 21 points, and Zack Novak added 16. They carried extra responsibility because Michigan guard Manny Harris, the conference's top scorer, was suspended for what his coach described as an act of unsportsmanlike conduct during practice on Friday. The team did not release details of the conduct. Harris had played in 85 straight games. (Copyright 2010 by The Associated Press. All Rights Reserved.)
