IOWA CITY, Iowa (Purdue Sports) — Despite a trio of players in double figures, the Purdue women's basketball team could not hold off a late charge by Iowa in the fourth quarter Monday afternoon, falling 87-81 at Carver-Hawkeye Arena.

Madison Layden dropped a career-high 19 points on 6-of-7 shooting, all triples, matching the freshman record for 3-pointers in a game. The rookie dished out four assists, grabbed three rebounds and notched a pair of steals.

Fatou Diagne posted her first double-double of the year with a career-high 16 points and 10 rebounds. Kayana Traylor popped back into double figures with a 14-point outing, including a pair of 3-pointers.

The Boilermakers (5-6, 2-5) shot 45% on the afternoon and converted 10-of-24 3-point attempts. Purdue converted 16 Iowa (9-3, 5-3) turnovers into 18 points and tallied 16 second chance points off 16 offensive rebounds.

Purdue shot 45% in the first half and built up a six-point lead at 21-15 in the second quarter. The Boilermakers kept pace with five 3-pointers, but an 11-2 Hawkeye run in the second gave the hosts a 44-39 lead at the break.

Diagne dominated the low block for 10 points over the opening 20 minutes. Layden gave the Boilermakers an early spark with a trio of triples in the first half, while Brook Moore chipped in all nine of her points off the bench.

Layden's hot touch continued into the third, knocking down a triple on back-to-back-to-back trips down the floor. Iowa grew its leads to as many as eight in the frame, but a Karissa McLaughlin 3-point buzzer beater pull the Boilermakers within two heading into the fourth at 63-61.

After tying the game at the line, Kayana Traylor nailed a stepback triple to open 3-point lead for the Boilermakers with 8:21 to play. Diagne and McLaughlin combined for Purdue's next three baskets to open a six-point advantage halfway through the fourth.

The Boilermakers fell on the wrong side of 13-0 run that saw the Hawkeyes pull away late.
