Johnson Powers Boilers To First Win Inside Value City Arena

Last updated on Thursday, February 18, 2010

(COLOMBUS, OHIO) - JaJuan Johnson, last week’s Big Ten player of the week, continued his great play Wednesday night as the number-4 Purdue Boilermakers knocked off the host Ohio State Buckeyes 60-57.

Johnson scored a team best 24 points and grabbed seven rebounds and dished out three assists.

The Boilers also received good play from E'Twaun Moore and Keaton Grant as both players combined for 28 points.

Number-12 Ohio State's Even Turner paced all scorers with 29 points, but that wasn't enough to stop Purdue from snapping a nine game losing streak inside Value-City Arena.

Purdue's win also snaps a nine game Big Ten winning streak by the Buckeyes.
