No. 22 Purdue edges No. 18 Nebraska

LINCOLN, Neb. — Whitney Bays got a crucial offensive rebound and then made the game-winning put-back as No. 22 Purdue edged No. 18 Nebraska 77-75 on Sunday.

Purdue (13-5, 3-3 Big Ten) led most of the second half but had to scramble to hold off Nebraska, which tied the game at 75 on a 10-3 run capped by a pair of Rachel Theriot free throws with 29 seconds to play. The Boilermakers got the ball to April Wilson, who missed her shot on a drive to the hoop, but Bays was there to grab the rebound and sink the game-winning layup with a second to go.

Courtney Moses scored 21 points, Bays contributed 17 and seven rebounds, KK Houser had 16 points and Wilson had 13 for Purdue, which shot 45 percent from the field and was 10 of 19 from 3-point range.

Theriot led Nebraska (13-4, 3-2) with 19 points.
