Jasmine McGhee scored 26 points, including the game-winning basket with 1 second remaining, as Indiana knocked off No. 22 Purdue 62-61 Wednesday night.

McGhee hit two free throws with 1:14 remaining, snapping a run of seven straight points by Purdue and giving the Hoosiers (11-15, 2-11 Big Ten) a 60-59 lead. A basket by KK Houser put the Boilermakers back on top 61-60 with 13 seconds left before Indiana called timeout and got the ball to McGhee, whose jumper sealed the victory and snapped a 10-game losing streak for the Hoosiers.

Aulani Sinclair added 16 points and Sasha Chaplin had 10 for Indiana.

Purdue (19-7, 8-5) has dropped two straight after falling to Iowa 72-52 on Sunday, and lost to Indiana for the first time since 2009 — a span of eight games.

Taylor Manuel had 16 points for the Boilermakers, Houser had 12 and Drey Mingo added 11 points and 10 rebounds.

No. 7 Penn St. 95, Illinois 62: Maggie Lucas scored 22 points, backcourt mate Alex Bentley added 20, and Penn State (22-3, 12-1)  overwhelmed Illinois in transition in a win, moving a step closer to a second straight Big Ten regular-season title.

Adrienne GodBold had 17 points for foul-plagued Illinois (15-10, 8-5).


No. 11 Georgetown 90, DePaul 66: D'Vauntes Smith-Rivera scored a career-high 33 points — the most by any Georgetown player this season — and the Hoyas (20-4, 10-3) moved back into a tie for first place in the Big East with a win over DePaul.

Brandon Young scored 16 points to lead the Blue Demons (11-15, 2-11).

No. 18 Ohio St. 71, Minnesota 45: Deshaun Thomas overcame a slow start to score 19 points and Ohio State (19-7, 9-5) used a 16-0 second-half run to beat Minnesota (18-9, 6-8 Big Ten).

No. 19 Wisconsin 69, Northwestern 41: Jared Berggren and Ben Brust each scored 12 points, and Wisconsin shut down Northwestern for its fifth win in six games.

The balanced Badgers (19-8, 10-4 Big Ten) had five players with at least eight points and held the Wildcats to 29-percent shooting during a very businesslike performance.  Reggie Hearn scored 13 for Northwestern (13-14, 4-10).

IPFW 77, Oakland 71: Frank Gaines scored 17 points and Luis Jacobo had 15 as IPFW (13-16, 6-9 Summit) beat Oakland, snapping the Golden Grizzlies' seven-game winning streak.

Milwaukee 64, Illinois-Chicago 53: Paris Gulley scored 17 points to lead Milwaukee (7-22, 3-12 Horizon League) to a victory against Illinois-Chicago. Gary Talton had 13 points, eight rebounds and six assists for the Flames (15-12, 6-8)

Evansville 79, Illinois State 62: Colt Ryan continued his climb up the scoring charts, pouring in 31 points as Evansville (15-13, 8-8 Missouri Valley) defeated Illinois State (16-12, 7-9).

Ryan now has 2,092 career points and is just 144 points shy of Evansville's all-time leader, Larry Humes (2,236 from 1963-66), with three regular-season games plus the Missouri Valley Conference tournament remaining.
