COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) With Ohio State making a run in the fourth quarter, Purdue buckled down defensively and knocked off the No.2 Buckeyes.

Abbey Ellis made a season-high five 3 pointers and Purdue earned its first top-five road victory in program history, beating Ohio State 73-65 on Sunday.

"We made a promise to ourselves that we were going to be tough throughout the whole game, especially in the fourth quarter, and we were," Ellis said. "We just stuck to what we're good at, what we know, and we knew that defense was going to get us through. And I think that showed in the end."
