WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) — Robbie Hummel's shooting slump is over, but he missed the shot that mattered most.
Hummel scored 16 points but was off on a 3-pointer that could have given Purdue the lead late.
Tim Hardaway Jr. scored 19 points to help No. 20 Michigan beat the Boilermakers 66-64 on Tuesday night.
Hummel, Purdue's leading scorer, was coming off an 0-for-11 shooting effort in an 83-58 loss to No. 10 Michigan State on Saturday. He had made just 10 of 42 shots in his past three games.
Still, Purdue consistently tried to get him involved against Michigan, and the Boilermakers went to the senior with the game on the line.
"He got some shots in rhythm, was able to knock them down," Purdue coach Matt Painter said. "It was good to see him, for his confidence, make some shots. It would have been great for him (to make the shot) at the end there. That's who we wanted taking the shots. We wanted to get to the rim or we wanted to get a rhythm jump shot from one of our shooters. The last two or three shots, we'd take any day of the week, but they just didn't go down."
