Recap: Purdue vs. William & Mary

West Lafayette, IN (Sports Network) - Terone Johnson scored 16 points and A.J. Hammons added 14, as the Purdue Boilermakers fended off the William & Mary Tribe, 73-66, in non-conference play at Mackey Arena.

Ronnie Johnson chipped in with 11 points and seven assists for the Boilermakers (6-6), where were playing their first game action since Dec. 18.

The teams continued to battle back and forth until just under the eight-minute mark of the second half, when Jacob Lawson broke a 58-58 tie with a layup to give Purdue the lead for good. The Boilermakers closed out the contest by out- scoring the Tribe, 13-8.
