Kenisha Bell leads Gophers over Purdue in women's basketball

Get a summary of the Purdue Boilermakers vs. Michigan State Spartans basketball game.

In addition to hitting the game-winning shot, Bridges was the Spartans leading scorer and made almost every big play for the victors.

The Spartans lost to Duke to start the season, and then in Big Ten play, they dropped games to the Ohio State Buckeyes and at home against the Michigan Wolverines.

Virginia Tech: The Hokies are a very risky team when they are making shots, and that's pretty often.

EAST LANSING, Michigan - After Isaac Haas' last-ditch jumper glance off the back of the rim against Ohio State on Wednesday night, P.J. Thompson slowly lowered his hands to his knees and bowed in disappointment.

Ohio State is tied for first place in the Big Ten Conference, which surprises a lot of people. By the time the game in Mackey ended, both of them had fouled out, too. When you look at it that way, it's a privilege for (his team) and I told them that. Cost them in the NCAA Tournament seeding conversation. It has been incredibly unusual for them to trail at home - witness their 16-game home winning streak dating to last season - and Virginia Tech made it hard after halftime with stout defense of its own. They can both shoots the light out (Purdue is second in the nation in three-point percentage; Michigan State is seventh). The Spartans (23-3, 11-2) have won seven in a row and are coming off a three-point win at Iowa. Bates-Diop scored the winning basket with 2.9 seconds left on a putback to cap a rally from 14 points down with just over 10 minutes remaining. "We didn't beat ourselves". He's watched Michigan State win four straight games by six or fewer points - including three on the road.

Prior to this season, the expectations for the Ohio State basketball program probably were lower than they had been in decades. Let's hope, the Big Ten rivals that trail behind don't make a comeback. 1 Duke back on November 14 at the Champions Classic, and against then-No. Isaiah Moss and Maishe Dailey, which supported Bohannon's 17 points, combined for 24 points on 8 of 15 field goal shooting in that contest. Opponents shoot only 37.9 percent from 2-point range.

For Ohio State, this sound was supposed to be years away. The run included a nice dish from point guard Cassius Winston to Kenny Goins inside, Winston's seventh assist of the night.

Painter said he initially believed Ohio State caused most of those errors. "How you feel like you've made some mistakes, it's not a flawless world".

"I'll give you the best excuse I can give you".

Miles Bridges finally has his signature moment. Purdue has improved since the summer, but has never completely solved its vulnerability on the defensive glass. The Indiana product came of the bench to score a team-high and career-best 18 points. Saturday's matchup may be the most critical one Purdue faces in that aspect. Expectations are still sky-high in East Lansing. If the Buckeyes manage to lose it will be because of a tremendous loss of focus. Purdue found out Wednesday those deficiencies, however infrequent or brief, can be devastating.

Holtmann said learning to trust one another will be a teaching point in film this week - one that he's fairly confident his group will need again if it's going to keep climbing in a positive direction. "If having a little more time together because of the snow, so be it".
