    WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. -- Sam Ostarello scored a career-high 21 points and matched her season-high with 13 rebounds to help Purdue (No. 17 ESPN/USA Today, No. 15 AP) remain on top of the Big Ten with a 77-66 victory over Illinois on Sunday.

    Courtney Moses also had 21 points for the Boilermakers (19-5, 9-2 Big Ten), who were coming off a thrilling triple overtime loss to Nebraska on Thursday. They moved a half-game in front of the Cornhuskers in the conference standings.

    Trailing 26-25 late in the first half, Purdue scored eight of the final 10 points before break to take a five-point halftime advantage.

    The Boilermakers continued the push to start the second half, expanding their lead to 44-30 on Brittany Rayburn's 3-pointer.

    Illinois rallied to within 62-58 with 7 minutes left before Moses scored four quick points to put Purdue comfortable back in front.

    Adrienne Godbold scored 25 points and Alex Burke added 17 for Illinois (8-16, 2-9).
