Purdue women stun No. 13 Michigan 81-79 in OT


Katelynn Flaherty scored 24 points for Michigan Thursday, but the Wolverines fell to Purdue in overtime.


ANN ARBOR, Mich. — Dominique Oden scored 26 points, including the last four in regulation, and Karissa McLaughlin added 21, including back-to-back 3-pointers in overtime, and Purdue shocked No. 13 Michigan 81-79 on Thursday night.

The Boilermakers (15-8, 6-3 Big Ten) scored the last 16 points in regulation with Oden’s basket with 0.7 seconds to go tying the game at 72. The referees then called a foul on Purdue with 0.3 to go but Kayla Robbins missed both free throws.

Michigan (19-5, 8-3), which had won six straight, which missed its last six shots over six-plus minutes with five turnovers, took the lead three times in OT but each time Purdue answered. McLaughin’s 3 with 1:09 to play made it 80-79.

The Wolverines came up empty on their last two possessions and Oden added a final free throw with 0.2 to go.

Lamina Cooper had 18 points for Purdue, which got six 3s from McLaughlin and four from Oden.

Katelynn Flaherty scored 24 points, Hallie Thome 20 and Hailey Brown 18 for Michigan.
