Former Champs Fall Again, Purdue Continues Cold Streak

When, the Tar Heels lost Tyler Hansbrough, Ty Lawson and Wayne Ellington the Tar Heel's repeat hopes were drowned until the team reloaded. With a tough strength of schedule they had fallen to No. 13 in the nation now playing No. 18 Georgia Tech, who had already beat Duke this season. Georgia Tech had a strong inside game led by Derrick Favors. But, it was Iman Shumpert (right) who provided the spark in the 73-71 win. Shumpert had 30 points. Will Graves had 24 for the 'Heels.

Purdue had moved up to No. 4 in the nation and an undefeated record until Wisconsin beat them and they fell to No. 6 in the nation. Next, still in Big Ten play it was Ohio State who had a late run as guard Evan Turner dominated. Now, against Northwestern, the Boilermakers were bound to get a win, right? Wrong. Guard Michael Thompson scored 20 points and the 'Cats won 72-64, despite E'Twaun Moore's 24 and Robbie Hummel's 20. That's now three straight as the Boilermakers take on Illinois next.
