Courtney Moses scored 21 points, hitting 5 of 8 from 3-point range, and fourth-seeded Purdue routed Liberty 77-43 Sunday in the opening round of the NCAA tournament.

The Boilermakers (25-8) improved to 19-1 in the first round with their 16th straight victory to open the tournament. They will play No. 5 seed Louisville or 12th-seeded Middle Tennessee in the second round Tuesday night of the Oklahoma City regional.

No. 13 seeded Liberty (27-7) hadn't played a Big Ten team since 2005 when the Lady Flames beat Penn State for their first NCAA tournament win. Liberty had the nation's best rebounding margin with a 17.5 edge per game, but couldn't beat Purdue on the boards in ending a 14-game winning streak.

Sam Ostarello had 10 points and 17 rebounds for Purdue. KK Houser added 15 points.

Devon Brown led Liberty with 21 points.
