Drey Mingo scored 24 points and Purdue won its second straight Big Ten tournament championship, beating Michigan State 62-47 on Sunday at Sears Centre in Hoffman Estates.

The Boilermakers (24-8) led by as much as 23 in the first half and were up 19 at the break before things got tense down the stretch. The Spartans (24-8) pulled within nine, but back-to-back 3-pointers by Courtney Moses and a key turnover helped preserve the win for Purdue, giving the Boilermakers a league-best nine tournament titles.
