WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP)—Sam Ostarello had 16 points and 10 rebounds to help No. 20 Purdue defeat Oakland 66-47 on Tuesday afternoon.

It was Ostarello’s first double-double of the season and the second of her career.

Courtney Moses scored 16 points and made four 3-pointers for the Boilermakers (9-3), who won their second straight since their upset loss at Central Michigan. Purdue won even though its leading scorer, Brittany Rayburn, scored just seven points on 2-for-8 shooting. She had averaged 15.1 points.

Sharise Calhoun scored 12 points and Zakiya Minifee and Bethany Watterworth each added 11 for Oakland (5-5), which had won two straight, including a victory over ACC opponent Clemson.

Oakland hadn’t played since a wild win over Illinois-Chicago on Dec. 11 when Calhoun made a game-winning shot from beyond half court in the 48-45 victory.
