"I thought Purdue played really well," Nebraska coach Connie Yori said. "Really, they kind of had a lot of the facets of their game going. They got the ball inside on us, and they drove it. They got their transition game going. They hit enough perimeter shots."

The Boilermakers put together an 11-2 spurt to open a 55-37 lead with 15:26 left in the game. Moses sparked the run with a jumper and closed it out with a fast-break layup.

Nebraska pulled within 10 on Moore's two free throws with 8:54 remaining, but Purdue responded with a 10-2 burst. April Wilson's 3-pointer extended the lead to 73-55 with 3:37 to go.

Jordan Hooper added 15 points and nine rebounds for the Huskers, who were outrebounded 40-33 and committed 14 turnovers.

"They got the ball inside on us too much," Yori said. "They crashed the glass. And we didn't do a good enough job of boxing out. And they got some easy baskets there. And we got taken out of our offense a little bit. We weren't as efficient as we needed to be."
