    AUBURN, Ala. -- Alex Guyton scored a career-high 19 points and No. 22 Purdue hit its free throws late in the game to hold on for a 62-54 win over Auburn on Sunday.

    After trailing by as many as 12 points in the second half, Auburn (6-3) cut the deficit to four with 4:41 to go but couldn't get any closer. The Boilermakers hit eight of their nine free throws in the final 4 minutes to seal it.

    Senior guard Brittany Rayburn, Purdue's leading scorer, came off the bench for the first time since her sophomore season and scored 15 points for the Boilermakers (8-3). Rayburn was diagnosed with pneumonia after a 75-62 loss to Central Michigan on Dec. 11 and was limited in practice all week.

    Hasina Muhammad led the Tigers with 17 points, Blanche Alverson scored 15, and Parrisha Simmons had nine points and a career-high 16 rebounds.

    Sam Ostarello had 10 points and seven rebounds for Purdue.
