    导出博客文章INDIANAPOLIS -- Caleb Swanigan wanted to change Purdues image. So after losing
    their first two games against ranked opponents this season, the sophomore
    forward took matters into his own hands.Swanigan scored half of his 26 points in
    the second half to lead No. 15 Purdue past No. 21 Notre Dame 86-81 on
    Saturday.We were tired of losing to good opponents, Swanigan said. The second
    half, I knew it was time to win.Swanigan, who finished with 10 rebounds, had all
    four of his blocks in the second half. Vincent Edwards finished with 20 points
    and 10 rebounds, and the Boilermakers won for the first time in the Crossroads
    Classic since it began six years ago.Id say it speaks for itself, Edwards said.
    We really dont have to say much. We always know were a capable team, and the
    coaches call what they see, so I feel like our performance today just showed
    that and I feel like it speaks for itself.Swanigans three-point play at the end
    of a 13-2 run gave the Boilermakers a 70-67 lead with 9:41 to play.The
    Boilermakers (9-2) opened the second half with a 12-2 run to cut the deficit to
    four and then went on a 10-0 run midway through the half to take a lead.Swanigan
    caused matchup problems for the Fighting Irish (9-2) and the Boilermakers went
    with the 6-foot-9 big man over 7-2 Isaac Haas, who played just 2 minutes in the
    second half.Notre Dame didnt have any answers.If youre going to help on
    Swanigan, youre going to give up a 3, Notre Dame coach Mike Brey said. And we
    finally decided to help because he was crushing us in there.Bonzie Colson had 23
    points and 10 rebounds and Matt Farrell finished with 22 points, 10 assists and
    five rebounds for Notre Dame, which has lost two straight.We didnt do enough in
    the paint, so tough one to swallow for us, Brey said. For us to beat really good
    teams like weve had the last two Saturdays, we need our big four to play really
    well.Purdue struggled to make baskets in the first half while Notre Dame jumped
    ahead and led by as many as 17 points when Martinas Geben made two free throws
    to put the Fighting Irish ahead 48-31 with 1:45 remaining in the first
    half.Notre Dame led 52-38 at halftime.BIG PICTURENotre Dame: After slipping into
    the AP Top 25 two weeks ago, the Fighting Irish have lost two straight. Notre
    Dame lost to top-ranked Villanova a week ago.Purdue: The Boilermakers needed
    this win after their only two losses this season came against ranked opponents
    -- No. 11 Louisville on Nov. 30 and No. 1 Villanova in the second game of the
    season. The victory over Notre Dame was the first against a ranked team.BOILERS
    FROM LONGPurdue entered the game shooting the ball well from 3-point range,
    especially on the road making 55.2 percent. The Boilermakers came in No. 4 in
    the nation shooting 44.1 percent overall on 3-point field goals, but struggled
    against Notre Dame, especially in the first half. Purdue finished 7 of 18 from
    3, but shot just 28.6 percent (2 of 7) in the first half.A RERUNWhen Purdue
    started to chip away at the 14-point deficit to start the second half, it seemed
    eerily familiar. Notre Dame blew a 16-point lead against Indiana in the
    Crossroads Classic a year ago and lost that game 80-73. This time the Fighting
    Irish gave up a lead of 17 points.UP NEXTNotre Dame will look to get back on
    track at home against Colgate on Monday.Purdue will take the momentum into a
    home game against Western Illinois on Monday.---More AP college basketball:

    SYDNEY -- Robert Allenby has returned to Australia, aiming to revive his career
    after troubles on and off the golf course over the last two years.The
    45-year-old Allenby on Wednesday said hed contemplated quitting a thousand times
    and gone through periods where he didnt want to be seen in public.He missed the
    cut in 21 of the 23 tournaments he played last season on the PGA Tour, including
    the Sony Open -- the Hawaiian venue where he had an infamous night out in
    January 2015.Allenby was found with severe bruises several hours after visiting
    a restaurant with friends after missing the cut at the Sony Open in 2015, and
    later claimed to have been abducted and beaten. As serious questions were raised
    over his version of events, Allenby admitted he couldnt remember a long period
    of the night and must have been drugged. A Hawaii man was later sentenced to
    five years in prison for using Allenbys credit cards and identification.That was
    by far the lowest point. Just the attention that it caused, Allenby, who is
    playing at the New South Wales Open in Sydney this week, was quoted as saying by
    the Australian Associated Press on Wednesday. I still stick by my story because
    detectives andd know and even today its the same story.ddddddddddddAllenby
    said some media coverage of the incident made it that I didnt want to be out of
    the golf course, didnt want to be seen.It really became a very stressful thing
    for me and thats when the reality of quitting was really high on the list, he
    said.Support from his wife and family just pulled me back, he said, Otherwise I
    would have gone a year ago.There have been other off-course issues this year,
    including a spat with a caddie and allegations -- which he described as a farce
    -- of disorderly conduct outside a casino in Rock Island, Illinois, in August
    after missing the cut in the John Deere Classic.Now that hes back on home soil,
    though, he is hoping his performances on the course are the focus of attention
    during the Australasian tour.He won Australian golfs triple crown -- the
    national Open, Masters and Australian PGA -- in 2005, and wants to prove the
    critics wrong by topping the tours order of merit to gain an exemption for next
    years British Open and more tournaments on the PGA Tour.
