Bays making impact at Purdue

WLFI Whitney Bays

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) – The Purdue women’s basketball team is known for putting up huge numbers on the scoreboard.

Their guards tend to be the center of attention, but one of their interior players is catching the eye of the gold and black faithful.

Redshirt junior forward Whitney Bays started for the first time in the Boilers Big Ten opener against Ohio State. It was tough go for the team and Bays, who scored sixteen points but fouled out in the loss to the Buckeyes.

On the bright side Bays sees it as a learning experience.

“Obviously coming off the bench I get to see how the game is being called and it’s easier to adjust, but starting, I feel like if that’s the best thing that my team needs, then I’m excited to do that,” Bays said.

“Me and coach we talked about it again and it’s an accomplishment, I’m just excited to help and get out there and contribute in any way. My teammates have been really supportive so I wouldn’t have been able to get where I am today without them.”

The Boilers next game is on Thursday at Northwestern. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
