There are four more games on tap from Orlando on day two of the Old Spice Classic. The two winner's…
FINAL: Washington State 69 - Purdue 54
After scoring only 17 points in the first half, and trailing by 10, Washington State (3-3) exploded for 52 second-half points en route to a 69-54 win over Purdue (5-2).
DaVonte Lacy led four Cougars in double-digits with 16 points while Jordan Railey and D.J. Shelton combined for 25 points, 23 of which came in the second half.
The Boilermakers, who got 26 points from the Johnson brothers in the backcourt and 13 more from freshman Bryson Scott, simply couldn't execute on either end after the break. Purdue made only 9-of-36 shots in the second half, while allowing Washington State to shoot 65.5% in the final 20 minutes.
THREE-POINT PLAY: WASHINGTON STATE
- DaVonte Lacy on halftime mood: "It was good. We didn't get our heads down. We knew we were getting good shots. We just weren't hitting them. I think we came out in the second half and shared the ball a lot more. But scoring 52 instead of 17 just means we were playing more as a team. Also we were attacking. We had 14 free throw attempts in the second half compared to two in the first, so it was just being attacking and hitting shots."
- Coach Ken Bone on job his post players did defensively: "Very proud of the job our bigs did. I think our bigs did a solid job on both ends. It was a great defensive effort. That's what I'm most proud of."
- Bone on difference late today versus Butler game yesterday: "Made plays, didn't turn it over, made free throws. We just played good, solid basketball."
*Purdue coach Matt Painter was not available for interviews by the time the next game, Oklahoma State vs. Butler, started.
