MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- KK Houser scored 20 points, Drey Mingo added 12 points and eight rebounds, and No. 18 Purdue rallied in the closing minutes for a 68-58 victory over Wisconsin on Thursday night.
Houser was just 6 of 14 from the floor but was 5 of 9 from 3-point range for the Boilermakers (19-5, 8-3 Big Ten), who rebounded from last week's losses at No. 8 Penn State and at Michigan.
Jacki Gulczynski led the Badgers (11-14, 3-9) with 19 points. Nicole Bauman scored 14, and Cassie Rochel had nine points, 13 rebounds and seven blocked shots.
Purdue erased a 28-20 halftime deficit to go ahead 45-42 with 6:47 left, but Wisconsin tied it on Gulczynski's free throw with 5:07 to play. The Badgers wouldn't score again until Bauman's 3-pointer with 1:39 left; by then, the Boilermakers had scored eight straight points to go ahead for good.
