West Lafayette, IN (Sports Network) - Michigan's erratic play outside Ann Arbor has been well documented, yet staring a 12-point deficit in the face, the Wolverines responded.
Trey Burke led the way with 26 points, seven assists, five rebounds and three steals, as the seventh-ranked Wolverines outlasted Purdue, 80-75, at Mackey Arena.
Burke did plenty of scoring, but also set up Nik Stauskas for some clutch late baskets. Stauskas finished with 17 points and Tim Hardaway Jr. added 16 with five rebounds for the Wolverines (25-5, 12-5 Big Ten), who have won two straight and snapped a four-game road losing streak. Michigan hadn't won on the road since a 74-60 victory at Illinois on January 27.
Terone Johnson scored a game-high 32 points with seven rebounds and Rapheal Davis chipped in with 15 points and nine boards for the Boilermakers (14-16, 7-10), who have lost two of three.
