No. 18 Purdue holds off Bowling Green

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) — KK Hauser pulled down a defensive rebound and followed it up with two clutch free throws with 21 seconds left in the game to allow No. 18 Purdue to escape with a 57-48 win over Bowling Green Sunday.

Alexis Rogers' layup with under a minute to play cut the Purdue lead to three points, 51-48, but the Boilermakers responded when Hauser fed Courtney Moses for a layup. The Falcons' Jasmine Matthews missed a 3-pointer and Hauser corralled the carom seconds later, then pushed the lead to 55-48. Bridget Perry was fouled after rebounding a second missed 3-pointer by Matthews and she converted both free throws for the final margin.

April Wilson scored 18 points to lead Purdue (9-2). Hauser finished with 13 points and nine rebounds and Liza Clemons and Courtney Moses each added 10 points.

Rogers finished with 16 points and Jillian Halfhill added 15 for Bowling Green (9-2).
