2005: Danielle Campbell
A Purdue signee (Campbell) and a Purdue prospect (Dee Dee Jernigan) tipped off against each other as Chicago Whitney Young visited East Chicago Central in a matchup of the No. 2 team in Illinois against the Class 4A No. 3 team in Indiana. Both teams entered the game undefeated.
Jernigan's shot off an offensive rebound tied the score at 53 and sent the game into overtime. But at the end of the overtime period Jernigan again ran the lane, but Purdue signeee Danielle Campbell altered her shot for Young's 59-57 win. Jernigan's layup rolled off the rim.
