Westville, Ind. – Behind a game-high 24 points by sophomore Bayley Goodman (Fowler, Ind./Benton Central), the Purdue Northwest women’s basketball team captured a thrilling 86-75 double overtime victory over Davenport University (Mich.) Thursday evening in a Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (GLIAC) match-up at H.D. Kesling Gymnasium at the James B. Dworkin Complex in Westville, Ind. PNW outscored the visiting Panthers, 11-0, in the second overtime period to capture the big conference home win.
Freshman guard Danielle Nennig (Wrightstown, Wis./Wrightstown) also had a big game for the Pride finishing with 23 points to help fuel the victory. Goodman hit a career-best six three-pointers in Thursday’s game to lead the way and notch a new career-best single-game point total. Freshman Taylor Vauters (Rockville, Ind./Riverton Parke) also scored in double figures for PNW with 10 points.
Goodman got Purdue Northwest off to a great start hitting a trio of three-pointers in the game’s first four minutes to help put the Pride up 9-0 early. However, DU fought back and closed the gap at the end of the first quarter with PNW holding a three-point edge, 18-15. Davenport took its first lead of the game, 21-20, at the 6:00 mark of the second quarter and stayed in front for most of the rest of the frame before taking a 32-29 lead into halftime.
The Pride struggled offensively to start the third quarter and the Panthers built a 40-32 lead with five minutes left in the period, but Goodman scored five straight points to help close the gap and another two points by freshman Lanie Allen (East Noble, Ind./East Noble) brought PNW within a point, 40-39. Purdue Northwest kept the momentum and a lay-up by Nennig put the hosts up, 48-47, heading to the fourth quarter.
Things looked promising for the Pride with 4:19 left to play in regulation and senior Ellie Michalski (Mukwonago, Wis./Mukwonago) hitting a pair of free throws to put the team up, 63-54. However, DU scored nine straight points over the next two minutes to tie the game at 63-63. A pair of free throws by Goodman with 13 seconds remaining in regulation put PNW ahead 67-64, but a three-pointer by Davenport in the closing seconds forced overtime. Both teams had chances to score a go-ahead basket at the end of the first OT period, but missed the attempts and the game stayed tied at 75-75.
Purdue Northwest (4-16 overall/3-12 GLIAC) heads up to Detroit, Mich., for its next conference game on Sunday, February 11, against the Wayne State Warriors. The GLIAC road game is scheduled for a 12 p.m. CT start at the Matthaei Center in Detroit.
