Ohio State 80, Purdue 71
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- Samantha Prahalis, the only senior on Ohio State's roster, has been through a lot of battles on the court. So it figured that when the No. 10 Buckeyes were badly in need of a bucket on Sunday against No. 16 Purdue, it was their most experienced player who supplied a dagger of a 3-pointer with 41 seconds left to pave the way to an 80-71 victory. Down as many as eight points earlier in the half, Ohio State fought back with a 12-3 run capped by a pair of free throws from Prahalis to take a 51-50 lead with 12:32 left. The teams then traded baskets and the lead to the finish. The Buckeyes (22-3, 9-3 Big Ten) finally took the lead for good on a hustle play. With a loose ball sitting on the floor between two Purdue players in the Boilermakers' backcourt, Prahalis swooped in, scooped it up and went the length of the court to put the Buckeyes up 67-65 with 4:07 remaining.
