JEFF SCHORFHEIDE/Herald photoStatistics don?t always tell the whole story. Saturdaynight, they hardly got past the opening sentence.Wisconsin made 18 more free throws than Purdue, grabbed 21more rebounds and still found itself the loser of a 72-67 battle. The No. 8Badgers never led after the first 49 seconds.?It is a very deceiving stats sheet,? Purdue coach MattPainter said. ?If you look at the stats sheet, we were outrebounded and they(Wisconsin) were unbelievable from the free throw line. To be able to get thiswin after getting outrebounded the way we did is a little bit unbelievable.?Though the Badgers dominated the boards and had aseason-best performance from the line, the Boilermakers rode hot shooting tobeat UW for the second time this season.Freshman Robbie Hummel, whose block in the closing secondssealed Purdue?s win in the teams? first meeting, had a career-high 21 points,and the Boilermakers shot 53 percent from the field and sank eight 3-pointersagainst the Big Ten?s top scoring defense.?We didn?t think we gave best effort tonight,? junior JoeKrabbenhoft said. ?I think we?re more disappointed in that than the loss.?Though Wisconsin trailed by as many as 15 points in thesecond half, the Badgers rallied back, cutting the lead to just four pointswith 1:10 to go.After Purdue?s JaJuan Johnson only converted one of two freethrows, Wisconsin had control of the ball with a chance to make it aone-possession game. But Trevon Hughes turned the ball over, allowing Purdue’sKeaton Grant to throw down a dunk that extended a lead the Boilermakers wouldnot relinquish.Hughes? turnover came while the sophomore tried a risky moveto split Purdue’s defense and was perhaps UW?s most costly one on a night whenthe team lost possession 18 times.?That wasn?t the only one,? Ryan said of Hughes’ miscue.?There?s 18 lessons in here.??When you turn it over 18 times, you usually have to pay.?Marcus Landry had six of the team?s turnovers, a problemthat set the Badgers back in the earlier loss to the Boilermakers as well.?We were careless with the ball today,? Landry said.UW?s last possession came with the team down five and 38.3seconds remaining, but the Badgers let 18 seconds tick off the clock beforeLandry finally settled for a 3-pointer that missed its mark, effectivelysealing Wisconsin?s fourth overall and second Big Ten loss of the season.?When you?re out there and you?re playing from behind andthings are going a mile a minute? at the time he thought that was a gooddecision,? Ryan said of Landry?s look. ?He?s hit a three like that during theseason.?Wisconsin was led in scoring by fellow guards MichaelFlowers and Jason Bohannon, who scored 14 points each. Joe Krabbenhoft alsoadded 12, complimented by nine rebounds. Four Badgers (Flowers, Bohannon,Krabbenhoft and Brian Butch) scored in double-figures, but the team was stillheld to just 32.7 percent from the field and 16.7 percent on 3-18 shooting from3-point range.?To be honest, we had a difficult time guarding them,?Painter said, ?so we just pressured them and got after them to knock out whatthey were trying to do.?Ryan acknowledged that the Badgers were taken out of therhythm by Purdue?s aggressiveness.?Sometimes with the pressure, getting bumped and thephysicality ? sometimes we gave in,? Ryan noted.While UW was having trouble maintaining possession from thestart, Purdue was maximizing its touches with the ball, shooting 6-10 frombehind the arc in the first half and entered halftime with a 42-32 lead.?Purdue comes in here, made shots, and we didn?t recover,?Ryan said.The Boilermakers were able to stretch its lead to 53-38 with13:02 left, but the Badgers battled back largely on the strength of itsrebounding and free throw shooting.?I just thought our guys just really hung tough, got on theglass, got second chance points, hustle opportunities,? Ryan said.In the end, though, Purdue was able to extend the lead every timeWisconsin got close, and the Boilermakers now are in sole possession of the BigTen lead while the Badgers drop to third place.
