IOWA CITY, Iowa – Kathleen Doyle had 31 points, nine rebounds and 10 assists, Makenzie Meyer scored seven of her 17 points in the final three minutes and Iowa beat No. 12 Indiana 91-85 in double overtime Sunday.

Iowa (13-3, 4-1 Big Ten) extended its home win streak to 30 games and moved into a three-way tie with Indiana and Rutgers atop the conference standings.

Monika Czinano had 23 points and Amanda Ollinger added six points and a career-high 10 assists for the Hawkeyes.

Meyer hit a 3-pointer and then made a layup to give Iowa a five-point lead – its biggest of the game to that point – with 1:56 left in the second OT. Aleksa Gulbe and Grace Berger made back-to-back layups to trim Indiana's deficit to 85-84 just 41 seconds later but Doyle answered with a layup and the Hoosiers got no closer.

The Hoosiers have lost 20 consecutive road games against Iowa, dating to a 63-59 win at Carver-Hawkeye Arena on Feb. 20, 1994.

Jaelynn Penn had a season-high 24 points, Gulbe added 18 points and nine rebounds and Berger finished with 16 points, seven rebounds and six assists for Indiana (14-3, 4-1).

The Hoosiers led by as many as 14 points in the first half and Gulbe hit a 3-pointer to give them a 69-63 lead with 3:23 left in regulation. Iowa scored 11 of the next 16 points to force overtime. Doyle was fouled as she made a layup to make it 74-all but missed the and-1 free-throw attempt with four seconds left in the fourth quarter.

NORTHWESTERN 61, PURDUE 56: In Evanston, the Boilermakers (11-6, 2-3 Big Ten) pulled within two points of the Wildcats (14-2, 4-1) with eight seconds to go as Homestead graduate Karissa McLaughlin hit a 3-pointer and Ae'Rianna Harris scored on a second-chance layup. But Northwestern hit three free throws in the final seconds to close out the win. Jenelle Grant led the Boilers with 16 points, and Dominique Oden scored 14.

No. 9 NORTH CAROLINA STATE 90, NOTRE DAME 56: In South Bend, Elissa Cunane recorded her ninth double-double of the season as hot-shooting North Carolina State beat Notre Dame.

The 6-foot-5 Cunane, averaging a double-double coming into the game, had 22 points on 8-of-10 shooting and 10 rebounds in 25 minutes for coach Wes Moore's Wolfpack (15-1, 4-1 Atlantic Coast Conference).

Katlyn Gilbert scored a career-high 25 points for the Fighting Irish (6-11, 1-4), who suffered their fifth straight home loss and seventh of the season at Purcell Pavilion, both low marks for Hall of Fame coach Muffet McGraw in her 33 seasons.

SOUTH DAKOTA STATE 100, PFW 69: At Gates Sports Center, the Mastodons (4-13, 0-4 Summit League) went on a 10-0 run to start the fourth quarter, but it was too late for a team that trailed 40-27 at halftime and were outscored 33-21 in the third quarter. Guard Riley Ott led the Mastodons with 20 points, and guard Anna Lappenkuper scored 19. 

TRINE 56, ALMA 38: In Alma, Michigan, the Thunder (10-4, 4-1 MIAA) held the Scots (6-7, 2-4 MIAA) to just 15 points in the second half. Guard Tara Bieniewicz led Trine with 14 points and forward Shay Herbert scored 12. 


MINNESOTA 75, No. 19 MICHIGAN 42: In Minneapolis, Daniel Oturu scored a career-high 30 points and Minnesota went on a late 11-0 run to beat Michigan.

Zavier Simpson had 19 points and nine assists for Michigan (11-5, 2-3). Franz Wagner scored 17 points.

The Gophers pulled away late after a back-and-forth second half.

Eli Brooks hit a 3-pointer with 3:20 to play to put Michigan ahead 65-64. But Oturu answered on the other end with a basket in the low post to give Minnesota the lead for good with 3 minutes left.
