WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP)
Terone Johnson, Purdue's top scorer during exhibition play, sat out with an ankle injury.
Bucknell led 68-65 in the closing seconds, but D.J. Byrd, Purdue's best 3-point shooter, missed an open 3-pointer that could have tied the game. Bucknell made 20 of 25 free throws while Purdue made just 7 of 15. The Bison also out-rebounded the Boilermakers 36-33.
