Women's basketball loses to Purdue, 62-47, in Big Ten Tournament championship

March 10, 2013

Hoffman Estates, Ill. – The MSU women’s basketball team closed the gap to as little as nine points after trailing by almost 20 going into halftime, but Purdue came out on top, winning 62-47 for their second straight Big Ten Tournament championship.

Back-to-back 3-pointers from Purdue’s Courtney Moses after sophomore forward Becca Mills made it a nine point game with a pair of free throws, gave Purdue the momentum they needed to put the game out of reach.

Moses finished with 16 points, but Purdue’s standout forward Drey Mingo stole the show, scoring 24 points and grabbing eight rebounds.

Senior guard Jasmine Thomas did her best to keep the Spartans in the game with 15 points and seven rebounds, leading the team in both categories.

Junior guard Klarissa Bell, who usually is an offensive power, was held scoreless picking up four rebounds and going 0-9 from the floor.

With selection Monday just over a week away, MSU will now turn their attention toward getting ready for the NCAA Tournament.
