WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) — Freshman Caleb Swanigan and senior A.J. Hammons both scored 15 points to lead four Purdue players in double figures and the 11th-ranked Boilermakers remained unbeaten with a 95-64 victory over Youngstown State on Saturday.

Hammons added 11 rebounds. Rapheal Davis and Issac Haas both scored 13 points for Purdue (11-0), which had a 54-point second half.

Matt Donlan had 19 points to lead Youngstown State (4-6).

Purdue improved to 11-0 for the first time since the 2009-10 team won its first 14. The Boilermakers have won every game by at least 12 points, pulling away from Youngstown State during the second half.

A 3-pointer from Dakota Mathias gave the Boilermakers a 76-55 lead, and a free throw from Haas extended it to 77-55 with 7:17 remaining. Two free throws by Swanigan with 4:09 to play pushed the lead to 86-59.
