FINAL: Ohio State 92, Indiana 82.
8:06 (3Q): OSU timeout with 8:06 left. Crowd at Assembly Hall on its feed after outlet from Tyra Buss hits Alexis Gassion, pump fakes, scores. 71-58, OSU.
END OF THIRD: Ohio State 71, Indiana 54. Kelsey Mitchell leads all scorers with 27 points. Amanda Cahill with 20. Indiana shooting much better in that third quarter, 6-of-12 from the field. The problem is only 12 attempts, because of six third quarter turnovers.
4:56 (3Q): Indiana with a nice little run to pull back within 17 points, 59-42. Alexis Gassion with a j, then a layup. Jenn Anderson underneath. Cahill 3. It’s 59-42, OSU.
HALFTIME: Ohio State 48, Indiana 29. Amanda Cahill is 6-of-9 from the field in the first half, with 15 points. The rest of the team: 4-of-25. Ohio State, as a team, is shooting 51.4 percent, and 5-of-9 from 3-point range.
4:39 (2): Cahill up to 12 points for IU. Karlee McBride with a big 3 to spark some momentum, but OSU continues to score at a fast pace. Hoosiers trail 37-24.
END OF FIRST: Ohio State 29, Indiana 14. IU shot 5-of-19 in that first quarter. Amanda Cahill, who hit 3-of-6, has seven points. On the whole, OSU’s length seems to be bothering the Hoosiers. Kelsey Mitchell leads the Buckeyes with 10 points.
4:35 (1): Ohio State out to a fast start. Buckeyes are 6-of-10 from the field. Indiana is 2-of-12. Kelsey Mitchell drains a 3, falling away, fouled. Really hurts. She has a chance for a four-point play. OSU is up 15-4. Timeout.
Indiana will host the No. 13 Buckeyes with a 20-game home win streak on the line. Ohio State’s four losses have come to some of the better teams in the country — South Carolina, UConn, Baylor and Miami (in overtime). Check back here for updates, or follow on Twitter, @Jon_Blau.
