WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. -- Purdue coach Matt Painter said after Tuesday's loss to Duke that his squad was "not a good defensive team."He eased up a bit after Saturday's performance against Arkansas-Pine Bluff. The Boilermakers forced 35 turnovers and held the Golden Lions to 23 percent shooting as Purdue (No. 10 ESPN/USA Today, No. 9 AP) rolled to a 90-42 win on Saturday night.
• Purdue scored the first 11 points of the game and cruised to their 13th straight home victory against an unranked opponent.
• The 48-point margin of victory is tied for the seventh-largest in school history and is the largest since a 106-50 win over Tampa in 1983.
• Arkansas-Pine Bluff has lost eight straight games dating back to last season.
