WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) -- Lindsay Wisdom-Hylton had 19 points
and eight rebounds to lead No. 13 Purdue to a 70-44 victory Sunday
over Penn State.

Katie Gearlds finished with 12 points and Erin Lawless and
Danielle Campbell each scored 11 for the Boilermakers (13-2, 2-0
Big Ten), who won their sixth consecutive game after a Dec. 6 loss
at Notre Dame.

Amanda Brown had 20 points and 12 rebounds for Penn State (7-8,
0-2), which fell to 4-11 all-time in West Lafayette and dropped its
fourth straight game in the series.

Purdue led 21-7 after jumpers by Erin Lawless and Lauren Mioton
with 7 minutes left in the first half, but the Lady Lions went on
an 8-0 run.

Despite shooting 33 percent from the field, Penn State went into
halftime trailing 25-21 following Brown's layup with 2.8 seconds
left.

The Boilermakers wasted little time taking control in the second
half, starting with a 14-3 run. Wisdom-Hylton's three-point play
capped the rally to give Purdue a 39-24 lead.

Following consecutive baskets by Brown, bringing Penn State to
within 11, the Boilermakers scored the next eight points to take a
47-28 lead with 13 minutes left.
