    COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Jantel Lavender scored 26 points Sunday, including nine during a 22-0 first-half run, to lead Ohio State (No. 17 ESPN/USA Today, No. 18 AP) past Michigan 70-50.

    It was the conference opener for both teams. The Buckeyes are trying to become the first team to win five straight Big Ten titles since Ohio State (1983-87).

    Ashlee Trebilcock scored 16 points and Samantha Prahalis had 10 points and seven assists for the Buckeyes (10-2), who have won four in a row. They scored 31 points off of Michigan's 22 turnovers.

    Veronica Hicks had 13 points for Michigan (7-5).

    Ohio State trailed 4-0 early but then reeled off 22 straight points as the Wolverines went scoreless for almost 8 1/2 minutes.

    Ohio State has won the last 11 games with Michigan and leads the series 44-6.
