No. 17 Michigan women roll past Purdue 80-59

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) — Leigha Brown scored 21 points, Emily Kiser had 17 points and seven rebounds and No. 17 Michigan beat Purdue 80-59. Brown reached 20-plus points for the third straight game — and Michigan scored 80-plus in each of those Big Ten contests. Brown has scored at least 20 points in five of her last six games. Leading 39-35 at the break, Michigan started the second half on a 12-2 run, with 3-pointers by Brown and Jordan Hobbs, to go ahead by double figures for good. The Wolverines led 60-44 entering the fourth as Purdue only made three field goals in a nine-point third quarter. Laila Phelia also scored 17 points for Michigan, which plays Michigan State on Saturday. Kiser scored all of her points after the first quarter.
