WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) — Courtney Moses had a season-high 29 points, the injured KK Houser provided an emotional lift and the No. 19 Purdue women spoiled No. 16 Nebraska's Big Ten title hopes with an 82-66 victory Sunday.

Despite tearing her ACL at Michigan State on Feb. 2, Houser started the game and played the first 2:34. She also entered the game shortly before the conclusion to be honored as a senior with a standing ovation.

Moses, meanwhile, celebrated her senior day by helping the Boilermakers (21-7, 11-5) to a great start, scoring eight points during Purdue's 10-0 run to start the game.

By halftime, Purdue led 43-23 and Moses had 18 points with 5-of-6 shooting from the field and 7-of-7 from the free-throw line.

Rachel Theriot had 24 points to lead Nebraska (22-6, 12-4) which entered the game with an opportunity to share the Big Ten title with No. 8 Penn State.
