2013 Big Ten Women's Tournament: Purdue 74, Wisconsin 62

New, comment

The Purdue women's basketball team is into the semifinal of the 2013 Big Ten Women's Basketball Tournament in Hoffman Estates, Illinois. KK Houser had 15 points and Drey Mingo 13 as they beat Wisconsin 74-62. Sam Ostarello also had 9 points and 11 rebounds in the win.

Purdue trailed by one at halftime after a big run and fell behind 43-35 early in the second half, but dominated the final 17 minutes. April Wilson hit a three to tie it at 43-43 with 14:46 left and Ostarello put Purdue in front for good at 49-47 with 10:10 left.

Purdue now moves on to the semifinals where it will face Nebraska. The Boilers beat the Cornhuskers in Lincoln in overtime early during the Big Ten season, but Nebraska went on to finish as runner-up to Penn State. Purdue beat Nebraska in double overtime in last year's Big Ten Tourney final and lost in triple overtime to them in the regular season, so that is six overtimes in the last three meetings since Nebraska joined the Big Ten.
