    Associated Press

    COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Jantel Lavender scored 20 points to hit double figures for the 45th consecutive game and No. 17 Ohio State rolled past Michigan State 67-49 on Sunday.

    The Buckeyes (12-2, 3-0 Big Ten) went on a 16-0 run early and were never threatened while winning their sixth in a row.

    Lavender, who leads the Big Ten in scoring and rebounding, shot from the outside rather than mix it up inside with the Spartans' 6-foot-9 Allyssa DeHaan. Lavender also had eight rebounds, two assists, two steals and three blocked shots.

    Star Allen added 14 points and 10 rebounds.

    Lauren Aitch had 14 points for the Spartans (9-6, 2-2), who never got closer than 14 points.
