Women's team takes down Purdue on road

February 28, 2013

As the regular season winds down, the MSU women’s basketball team stuck to what got it to 20 wins this season for the 10th-consecutive year: balanced scoring and defense.

The Spartans went on the road and avenged an earlier loss to Purdue by sinking the No. 25 Boilermakers 68-61 on Thursday night. It was MSU’s first win over a ranked team this season after dropping its previous four attempts.

Purdue was held scoreless for the final three-plus minutes of each half by the best scoring defense in the Big Ten.

Junior forward Annalise Pickrel had a game-high 18 points to lead a trio that included guards Jasmine Thomas, a senior, and junior Klarissa Bell that accounted for more than 76 percent of MSU’s points.
