Katie Gearlds and company got their biggest win of the young season with a 66-61 upset victory over No. 17 Florida State at the St. Pete Showcase.
What a win for those ladies. Coming off of a sour defeat at the hands of No. 22 West Virginia, Purdue showed incredible resiliency to knock off the ranked Seminoles. This was much needed after this team lost two of three and let another upset opportunity against the Mountaineers slip away.
Fans can already the complete switch in culture for this program compared to last season. This same game last year would have ended as a double-digit loss for Purdue, instead, the Boilermakers get a statement win in non-conference.
