    COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Jantel Lavender scored 27 points and Samantha Prahalis had 17 to help Ohio State (No. 21 ESPN/USA Today, No. 20 AP) rally from a 10-point deficit in the second half to beat Dayton 76-61 in the final of the Buckeye Classic.

    Kristin Daugherty had 18 points and Justine Raterman 16 for the Flyers, who (4-3) went up 49-39 when Kendel Ross hit a 3-pointer with 12:40 to play.

    But Ohio State (6-1) answered with an 11-1 that included Prahalis making a 3-pointer and a three-point play. Lavender ended the run with two free throws that tied it at 50.

    Patrice Lalor gave the Flyers their last lead at 52-50 with 9:20 remaining but Lavender followed with a free throw and short jumper and Schulte hit a 3-pointer hit to put Ohio State ahead 56-51.

    Dayton couldn't get closer than five the rest of the way.
