Purdue head coach Sharon Versyp said expects a high-scoring game against Nebraska.

"I expect an up-tempo game. They want to run as much as they can," Versyp said. "I think they have more depth than they had last year."

Wisconsin scored the first seven points of the second half to take its biggest lead, 43-35, with 18 minutes to play. But Purdue scored the next eight to tie it, and went ahead to stay at 48-47 midway through the half.

Jacki Gulczynski, a former star at nearby Bartlett High School, led the 11th-seeded Badgers (12-19) with 21 points. Tessa Cichy had 14 points and six rebounds and Tiera Stephen scored 10 points for Wisconsin.

The Badgers, who made all 21 of their free-throw tries in their 58-57 first-round victory over Illinois on Thursday, made 13 of 14 against Purdue.
