LOUISVILLE, Ky. - Brad Miller scored 27 points and Gene Keady became Purdue's all-time winningest coach as the fifth-ranked Boilermakers rolled to an 87-69 victory at number 25 Louisville.

Chad Austin added 20 points for Purdue (6-2), which bounced back from losses to North Carolina and a lethargic effort against Kentucky at the Great Eight Classic in Chicago on Wednesday.

Keady, in his 18th season at Purdue, recorded his 372nd victory at the school, passing Wade Lambert, who compiled a 371-152 mark in 28 seasons at West Lafayette from 1916-45.

Nate Johnson scored 16 points and freshman Marques Maybin added 13 for Louisville (2-3), which has lost three straight games and continues to struggle as its new backcourt gets acclimated.

The Cardinals, who lost to North Carolina in the Great Eight Classic, fell to 505-95 all-time at Freedom Hall.
