The Ohio State women’s basketball team demolished Purdue in every possible way Thursday night at the Schottenstein Center, clinching the Buckeyes at least a share of the Big Ten title.
OSU beat the Boilermakers 75-45, but they didn’t stop there. They beat Purdue in every statistical category including rebounds, steals, assists, field goal percentage, three point percentage and blocks.
Center Jantel Lavender led the charge with 20 points, 11 rebounds and three blocks while exploiting Purdue’s smaller players in the paint.
Guard Samantha Prahalis added nine points and 11 assists. She furthered her reputation as a great passer with a couple of no-look passes and one airborne pass nearly the length of the court.
In all, 13 players participated in the demolition for OSU, including many third-string players who rarely see playing time.
Freshman guard Amber Stokes, one of the third-stringers, scored eight points and grabbed two rebounds in her limited minutes.
Purdue beat OSU on Jan. 25, but this dominating performance will put that game in the back of all critics’ minds.
