(Continued)

Kelsey Griffin snagged a career-high six steals for Connecticut, which took advantage of 25 turnovers and made 24 of its 32 free throws.

Indiana starters Briann January, Erlana Larkins and Howard each picked up three fouls in the first half.

Howard, who started, fouled out with 5:27 left in the game after logging a little over 20 minutes.

“Our fouls took a toll on us,” Indiana’s Shavonte Zellous said. “Then we turned the ball over too much. It gave them the extra energy that they needed to get a run.”

Bentley got hot early as she scored eight of the Sun’s first 10 points.

Allison Hightower’s two free throws and Bentley’s 3-pointer gave Connecticut a 32-21 lead with over five minutes left in the first half.

The Sun took a 45-35 advantage into halftime.

Howard helped the Fever cut into Connecticut’s lead. She had a three-point play and a putback wrapped around a Larkins’ layup to cut Indiana’s deficit to 53-47 with 4:28 left in the third quarter.

Bentley answered with a 3-pointer and off-balance jumper to push Connecticut ahead, 58-47.

“I think she hit every shot she put up,” Zellous said.

Purdue to remove some Ross-Ade Stadium bleachers

WEST LAFAYETTE (AP) — Purdue athletics director Morgan Burke says about 6,100 bleacher seats in Ross-Ade Stadium’s south end zone will be removed before the start of the Boilermakers’ season.

Burke said Saturday the decision to remove the upper bleachers was made to avoid necessary maintenance and ensure their safety. He says removing the bleachers will give the area a new look and feel ahead of the stadium’s planned renovation.

Purdue says an announcement will be made later on how the space will be used during the 2014 season.

Fans that purchased tickets in the upper bleachers for the upcoming season will be contacted by the Purdue Athletic Ticket Office starting Monday and offered seats in the lower bleachers or in the main stand’s section 129 at no additional cost for the 2014 season.
