ESTERO, Fla. (AP) - Ashley Morrissette scored 17 points and Bridget Perry added 14 more, including the winning free throws with 21 seconds left, to lift Purdue to a 62-60 comeback win over No. 22 Louisville in the Gulf Coast Showcase on Saturday night.
    
Morrissette's bucket with 1:07 remaining gave Purdue (5-0) its first lead since the first quarter, 57-56. Louisville edged back twice before Perry drained both free throws to take a 61-60 advantage. April Wilson cemented the win by going 1 of 2 from the line with 10 seconds left, then got a steal at the other end.
    
Andreona Keys grabbed 10 rebounds for Purdue, which hit 54 percent of its 43 shots from the floor.
    
Louisville (1-3) led most of the game but couldn't break away as Purdue kept the margin in the single digits. Myisha Hines-Allen had 16 points for the Cardinals and Briahanna Jackson added 13.
