Morgan's double-double leads No. 14 Spartans past Hummel-less Boilermakers
WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. -- One game into Purdue's season without Robbie Hummel, things already have changed significantly for the worse.The junior forward tore the ACL in his right knee earlier in the week and will miss the rest of the season. Without its No. 2 scorer and rebounder, third-ranked Purdue produced its lowest point total of the season in a 53-44 loss to No. 14 Michigan State on Sunday.The loss snapped the Boilermakers' 10-game winning streak, and came while their other two stars -- E'Twaun Moore and JaJuan Johnson -- combined to go 7 for 27 from the field.
• Raymar Morgan had 16 points and 11 rebounds as Michigan State moved into a three-way tie in the loss column (with Ohio State and Purdue) atop the Big Ten.
• Purdue struggled in its first game without Robbie Hummel, shooting just 30 percent from the floor and scoring just 44 points.
• Purdue's 10-game winning streak was snapped.
• The last time the top three teams in the nation lost in the same week was Feb. 16-22, 2009, when Connecticut, Oklahoma and North Carolina all lost.
