The Spartans extended their win streak to eight games, and the victory allowed MSU to move into a tie with Purdue for second in the Big Ten conference.
“I was really trying to go to the basket,” Bridges said post-game. “But [Purdue guard Dakota Mathias] gave me a little room so I shot it.”

Isaac Haas had eight of Purdue’s final ten points, but missed the team’s final shot with 25 seconds left. The 7′ 2″ center finished with a game-high 25 points and had five rebounds.
