NCAA Game Summary - Rider at Purdue



(Sunday, November 17)

Final Score: Purdue 81, Rider 77

West Lafayette, IN (SportsNetwork.com) - Ronnie Johnson scored 16 points, leading four players in double figures, as the Purdue Boilermakers captured an 81-77 win over the Rider Broncs in a non-conference meeting at Mackey Arena.

Terone Johnson chipped in 14 points and handed out five assists for the Boilermakers (3-0), followed by Sterling Carter and Bryson Scott with 13 and 11 points, respectively.

The Broncs (0-2) were paced by Anthony Myles who tallied a game-high 19 points, while Daniel Stewart tacked on 16 points and matched Myles on the glass with six rebounds. Jimmie Taylor contributed 13 points and handed out five assists while Zedric Sadler added 11 points off the bench.

A back-and-forth battle early on in the first half, Purdue eventually opened up a double-digit lead in the frame, but the Broncs battled back to knot the score at the break, 40-40. The Boilermakers shot 51.6 percent from the field through the first 20 minutes of action, but at the same time converted only 5- of-11 at the free-throw line. Rider made all but one of 16 chances at the stripe.

With five minutes remaining in the second half the squads were again locked up, this time at 68-68, before Carter scored four straight points to put Purdue in the lead for good.

In a game that featured seven ties and five lead changes, the hosts made just 3-of-15 shots beyond the arc and 16-of-31 at the free-throw line.
