Five Key Plays: Purdue 87, Michigan 70

WEST LAFAYETTE — Another post-heavy ranked team, another double-digit loss for the Michigan basketball team.

Aside from sophomore guard Muhammad-Ali Abdur-Rahkman’s 25 points, the Wolverines’ trip to No. 20 Purdue left little to be desired. Even without leading scorer Caris LeVert, Michigan hung around for most of the game, but eventually faltered, 87-70.
