#10 Ohio State Women Top Illini
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- Samantha Prahalis scored eight straight points down the stretch for No. 10 Ohio State on Sunday, leading the Buckeyes past pesky Illinois 96-84.

Prahalis finished with 28 points, Tayler Hill added 26 and Amber Stokes 16 for the Buckeyes (19-1, 6-1 Big Ten), who have won four in a row since their lone loss.

After Hill hit a late 3-pointer to give the Buckeyes the lead for good, Prahalis -- Ohio State's only senior -- hit two 3s and another outside jumper.

Karisma Penn had 23 points, Adrienne GodBold 18, Amber Moore 13 and Ivory Crawford 12 for the Illini (6-14, 0-7), who added to their list of close losses in conference play.
