ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) -- Terone Johnson scored a career-high 22 points and Robbie Hummel added 17 to help Purdue upset No. 11 Michigan 75-61 on Saturday night, handing the Wolverines their first home loss of the season. Michigan (21-8, 11-5 Big Ten) entered 15-0 at the Crisler Center but couldn't finish off the third unbeaten home season in school history. Trey Burke and Zack Novak led the Wolverines with 12 points each, while Tim Hardaway Jr. had 10. The Boilermakers (19-10, 9-7) won for the fourth time in five games, improving their postseason resume. Burke's two free throws tied the game at 40 with 13:02 to play, and the Boilermakers immediately turned the ball over. Jordan Morgan's basket gave Michigan its first lead, but Purdue answered with a 12-3 run to go up 52-45 with 6:30 left. Michigan rallied, but Johnson answered with a three-point play. Hummel then hit back-to-back 3-pointers, and the Boilermakers led 61-51 with 3:31 left. Another three-point play from Johnson ended Michigan's dream of a 16-0 home record and perhaps a top-10 ranking going into the Big Ten tournament. The only drama left involved the seniors. Novak, Michigan's popular captain, hit a 3-pointer as his last act before coming out to a large ovation. Corey Person, a walk-on who spent four years working on the scout team, then hit the first two baskets of his career. Purdue got off to a quick start and led by 11 midway through the first half. Burke finally got involved at that point, and his seven points helped Michigan pull within 32-28 at halftime.
