• Iowa 59, No. 13 Purdue 42 — At Iowa City, Iowa,  Kamille Wahlin scored all 13 of her points in the second half and Iowa upset No. 13 Purdue 59-42, snapping the Boilermakers’ 11-game winning streak. It’s the first Big Ten loss for Purdue, which made one field goal in the final 11 minutes.

“We finally got one,” Iowa coach Lisa Bluder said.

Iowa (12-10, 4-5 Big Ten) seemed like an unlikely candidate for the upset as the Hawkeyes had lost four of their last five games.

Brittany Rayburn hit a 3-pointer to bring Purdue (18-4, 8-1) within 40-37 with 11 minutes left, but the Hawkeyes answered with a 16-2 run over an 8-minute stretch to pull away.

Wahlin — who hit three 3-pointers in the second half, including two in the first three minutes — made a big pull-up jumper as the shot clock expired towards the end of that run. The basket gave Iowa a 54-38 lead with 3:44 left.

Purdue’s Alex Guyton made a lay-up with 2:22 left, ending a nearly 9-minute field goal drought.

“We came out and played hard, but didn’t play with a purpose,” Purdue coach Sharon Versyp said. “We didn’t shoot well at all with tired legs.”

Center Morgan Johnson led Iowa with 17 points and 11 rebounds.

Purdue’s top three scores — Rayburn, Courtney Moses and KK Houser — shot a combined 8-of-30 from the field. The Boilermakers finished making only 23 percent from the floor, including 2-of-14 from behind the 3-point line.

“We had plenty of opportunities,” Moses said. “We had open shots and just missed them.”

Iowa’s reserves — who were outscored 22-0 in the first matchup with Purdue — scored 16 points. Virginia Johnson and Theairra Taylor each scored six points, helping Iowa gain control at the end of the first half.

“I felt like our bench players gave us great momentum going into the locker room,” Wahlin said.

Iowa missed 11 of its first 12 shots to start the game and had as many fouls as points for nearly the first 10 minutes. But Taylor hit a scoop lay-up with 45 seconds left in the first half for a 23-21 advantage at halftime — Iowa’s first lead of the game.

The Hawkeyes held on the rest of the way in a tough and sloppy game. The teams combined for 29 turnovers and 42 fouls.

The Boilermakers had won 16 of the last 19 meetings with Iowa, including a 57-55 victory on Jan. 15 in Mackey Arena.
