    MADISON, Wis. -- Jantel Lavender had 16 points and 15 rebounds to help Ohio State (No. 17 ESPN/USA Today, No. 16 AP) beat Wisconsin 55-42 Thursday night.

    It was the seventh straight win for the Buckeyes (13-2, 4-0 Big Ten), who took sole possession of first place in the Big Ten with Indiana's 70-62 loss at Minnesota.

    Lin Zastrow scored 11 points for the Badgers (12-4, 2-3), who missed their first six shots during a four-minute scoring drought at the start of the second half. Wisconsin also missed its final 10 shots of the game.

    Lavender, the Big Ten scoring leader who came into the game averaging 22.1 points per game, has scored in double figures in all 46 games of her career at Ohio State.

    The Buckeyes shot 33 percent (10-of-30) from the field in the first half, but opened the second half with a 7-0 run to gain control.

    Senior guards Star Allen and Ashlee Trebilcock scored 11 points each for the Buckeyes, who have won the 13 straight meetings against the Badgers.
