Boiler Girls win Big 10

The Purdue Women's Team defeated Illinois to win their 2nd Big 10 Title in a row.
Purdue's Lakisha Freeman grabbed her own rebound and put in a ten footer at the buzzer to win 58-56. The victory was only assured after a replay review and set off a wild celebration at midcourt as Purdue (18-14) assured itself of keeping the nation's fifth-longest NCAA tournament streak intact. Purdue will make its 15th straight appearance this year after clinching the conference's automatic bid by defending its 2007 tourney title.
