A.J. Hammons recorded a double-double off the bench with 19 points and 13 boards for the Boilermakers (11-11, 4-4), who were coming off a 37-point home loss to Indiana earlier this week. D.J. Byrd and Anthony Johnson (eight rebounds) rounded out the double-digit scorers with 12 and 11 points, respectively.
