Western Kentucky upsets No. 18 Purdue 77-73 in Bahamas

PARADISE ISLAND, Bahamas (AP) Western Kentucky's short-handed roster earned a rare win against a ranked team. And now No. 18 Purdue is trying to figure out what's happened to its high-scoring offense.

Darius Thompson scored 12 points and hit two clinching free throws with 5.1 seconds left to help the Hilltoppers upset the Boilermakers 77-73 in Thursday's consolation round at the Battle 4 Atlantis.

The Hilltoppers (3-2) led nearly the entire night, but needed to make several clutch plays late to hang on - the product of what coach Rick Stansbury called "just toughness" for a team with only eight available scholarship players.
