Iowa 59, Purdue 42
IOWA CITY, Iowa -- The University of Iowa women's basketball team got the signature victory it was looking for Saturday on Mediacom Court inside Carver-Hawkeye arena, defeating 13th-ranked Purdue, 59-42, and halting the Boilermakers' 11-game winning streak. It was Purdue's first loss in Big Ten Conference play, dropping it to 8-1 and 18-4 overall. The Hawkeyes posted their first victory over a ranked team, and it improved the team's record to 12-10 overall and 4-5 in Big Ten action. "I can't tell you what a happy locker room that was," said UI head coach Lisa Bluder. "They deserved it. I'm so happy for this group because it's been a tough January. You play eight teams that are in the top-25, and we finally got one." RECAP
