E’Twaun Moore’s 38 points leads #11 Purdue over #3 Ohio State

E’Twaun Moore hit 13-of-18 shots (including 7-of-10 from long range) to lead the Purdue Boilermakers in a 76-63 win over the Ohio State Buckeyes.

Purdue pulled away at the end, so the game was closer than the final score would indicate. JaJuan Johnson (13 points) was the only other Boilermaker in double digits. Ohio State got 25 points and six boards from freshman phenom Jared Sullinger, but the Buckeyes shot just 38% from the field and turned the ball over 18 times. That’s not going to get it done when playing on the road against Purdue.

Moore is currently considered a second round prospect by Draft Express, while NBADraft.net doesn’t even have him going in the first two rounds. He’s averaging more than 18 points and is shooting better than 40% from 3PT range, so offensively he can score in a variety of ways. He’s a good defender, and although he lacks the physical tools that will wow NBA scouts, he’s a smart player and knows where he’s supposed to be on the court. That’s half the battle defensively.
