Posted:

Lindsay Wisdom-Hylton had 14 points and 10 rebounds to help Purdue beat Iowa 60-49 on Thursday night.

Wisdom-Hylton also had five steals, three blocks and three assists. Jodi Howell, Brittany Rayburn and Natasha Bogdanova each scored nine points for the Boilermakers (10-5, 3-1 Big Ten), who swept the season series with the Hawkeyes.

Megan Skouby, a 6-foot-6 center, had 14 points, eight rebounds and six blocks for Iowa (8-7, 1-3). Kristi Smith added 14 points for the Hawkeyes.

It was Purdue's first game since defeating No. 8 Texas on Monday night. The Boilermakers have won five of six since starting the season with a 5-4 record.

Purdue also improved to 2-0 since it lost starting point guard FahKara Malone for 4-to-6 weeks with a dislocated right ring finger.

Purdue held Iowa to 32 percent shooting and forced 16 turnovers.

Howell made three 3-pointers in the first half to help Purdue take a 30-26 lead at the break. The Boilermakers made 6 of 9 threes in the first 20 minutes.

Purdue started the second half on a 12-3 run that included three buckets by Wisdom-Hylton to take a 42-29 lead.

Skouby and Smith scored for Iowa to cut Purdue's lead to 42-33, but a 3-point play by Rayburn and a mid-range jumper by Wisdom-Hylton and a fast-break layup by Rayburn boosted Purdue's lead to 49-33 with 7:19 to play.
