MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- Lewis Jackson had 16 of his 20 points in the second half, D.J. Byrd sank all five of his 3-point attempts in the first half and Robbie Hummel returned to the scene of his first devastating injury to enjoy an inspired victory by Purdue, 79-66 over Minnesota on Sunday night. Byrd finished with a career-high 18 points for the Boilermakers (13-4, 3-1 Big Ten), who bounced back from an ugly loss at Penn State that prompted coach Matt Painter to describe his team as "fat and sassy." Hummel had 13 points and seven rebounds, nearly two years after he cut across the Williams Arena lane to catch a pass and crumpled to the floor when his right knee buckled, forcing reconstructive surgery and perhaps keeping Purdue from the Final Four. Rodney Williams led the Gophers (12-5, 0-4) with 19 points and 14 rebounds.
