    Purdue 79, Texas A&M-Corpus Christi 61

    WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) -- Carl Landry overcame frustration and foul trouble to get 21 points and eight rebounds in leading Purdue to a 79-61 victory over Texas A&M--Corpus Christi on Friday night.

    The Boilermakers (10-2) remained undefeated at home this season despite cold shooting and weak rebounding in a rough and tumble game.

    Corpus Christi's 7-foot center, Chris Daniels, led the Islanders (6-4) with 19 points and eight rebounds.

    Landry scored 12 points in the first half, but drew his second foul and sat down with 5:43 left before halftime with Purdue leading 28-14.

    When the Islanders scored six straight, Purdue coach Matt Painter turned to 6-10 freshman Dan Vandervieren to face Daniels. Vandervieren made all three of his shots in the final minutes of the half.

    Landry went to the bench again early in the second half after picking up a technical foul for slamming his hand on the court in protest of a non-call by the officials. Corpus Christi then closed within four points before Landry returned and helped the Boilermakers pull away.

    David Teague added 13 points for Purdue as his teammates Gordon Watt, Keaton Grant and Vandervieren each scored 10.
