WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) -- Ronnie Johnson scored 13 points to help Purdue defeat Penn State 60-42 on Sunday.

A.J. Hammons had 12 points and 10 rebounds, D.J. Byrd scored 12 points and Rapheal Davis added 10 in just his second start for the Boilermakers (8-8, 2-2 Big Ten).

Purdue, which was coming off double-digit losses to ranked foes Michigan State and Ohio State, held Penn State (8-8, 0-4) to 26 percent shooting.

Brandon Taylor led Penn State with 11 points, but he was the only Nittany Lion to score in double figures.

Penn State has lost four straight and has failed to score more than 54 points in any of those games. The Nittany Lions shot a season-low field-goal percentage for the third straight game and posted a season-low point total.

Purdue outrebounded the Nittany Lions 42-33, allowing the Boilermakers to get away with 10-for-21 shooting from the free-throw line.
