ANN ARBOR, Mich. — Trey Burke had 15 points and eight assists and gave No. 2 Michigan a boost on defense, helping the Wolverines shake free of Purdue in the second half for a 68-53 win Thursday night.

Tim Hardaway Jr. added 13 points for Michigan, which has a chance to move to No. 1 in the country if it can win at Illinois on Sunday. Duke, the current top-ranked team, lost Wednesday.

The Wolverines (18-1, 5-1 Big Ten) trailed by seven in the first half, but Purdue (10-9, 3-3) couldn't keep up its torrid outside shooting. Terone Johnson scored 14 points for the Boilermakers.

Michigan took control with a 14-2 run in the second half.
