Hunter Dickinson played through a knee injury Thursday and scored a game-high 22 points to lead Michigan to an 82-58 upset of No. 3 Purdue in Ann Arbor, Mich.
Dickinson canned 8 of 15 shots, including 4 of 6 3-point attempts, and added a game-high nine rebounds. He also dished out four assists as the Wolverines (13-9, 7-5 Big Ten) bolstered a light resume with a runaway win over the first of six Top 25 teams they'll face before the regular season ends on March 6.
Four other players scored in double figures for Michigan. Eli Brooks went 4 of 4 from 3-point range and added 18 points. Moussa Diabate hit for 15, and Caleb Houstan chipped in 14 points, drilling 4 of 6 3-point tries. DeVante' Jones netted 11 points and doled out 10 assists.
The Wolverines avenged an 82-76 loss to the Boilermakers on Saturday by being the better team in every aspect. They made 51.6 percent from the field, including 12 of 21 from 3-point range, and earned a 35-25 advantage on the boards while beating a Top 25 foe for the first time in four attempts this season.
Jaden Ivey scored 18 points for Purdue (21-4, 10-4). Trevion Williams came off the bench to add 12 points and Zach Edey contributed 10, but Edey played just 17 minutes after finding early foul trouble.
The Boilermakers led for just 36 seconds and never threatened in the second half. Michigan led by double figures for the final 15:50, expanding the margin as high as 29 points in the last three minutes. Purdue's three previous losses occurred by a combined 10 points.
Michigan set an immediate tone when Jones scored six points in the game's first 3:46 to get the hosts off to a 13-6 lead. Purdue rallied over the next eight minutes, tying the game at 24 on a 3-pointer by Ethan Morton with 8:16 left in the half.
The Boilermakers went cold after that, managing only five points for the half's remainder. Dickinson scored 10 points in the final 7:08 as the Wolverines took a 38-29 advantage to the break.
