Cowgirls eye Sweet 16

OSU must win on Purdue’s home court

(Continued)

What to watch:

BOILER ROOM: Purdue is dealing with its own regional drought. Once a regular in the Sweet 16, the Boilermakers haven’t won a second-round game since 2009.

CHANGING IT UP: The Cowgirls spent most of Saturday chasing Florida Gulf Coast’s 3-point shooters. Now they’ll have to contend with a more traditional offense. One key will be how quickly and smoothly Oklahoma State adjusts.

RECORD SETTER: Moses isn’t just Purdue’s top scorer at 15.7 points. She’s the catalyst. Her early scoring binge and big block helped Purdue jump to a 20-2 lead against Akron. Tonight, Moses will also try to make history. Her next 3-pointer will break a tie with Katie Gearlds for the most in school history (238).

ROLLERCOASTER RIDE: Oklahoma State has gone 8-7 in last 15 games, alternating wins and losses throughout that span. To advance, that must change.

TIME DIFFERENCE: The originally scheduled 5:30 p.m. tip has been pushed back to 8 p.m. It may not seem like a big deal, but Littell noted Purdue could get a slight advantage since the home team’s players can relax in their own apartments and dorm rooms rather than staying at a hotel.
