    COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Tayler Hill scored 24 points, Samantha Prahalis 20 and Amber Stokes 11 as Ohio State (No. 25 ESPN/USA Today, No. 24 AP) withstood a late Temple rally for a 70-66 win Friday.

    The Owls trailed by 11 with three minutes left but pulled to within 66-63 on a 3-pointer by Brittany Lewis with 32.3 seconds to go.

    Hill then made two foul shots to increase the lead to five for Ohio State (2-0). Temple's Shey Peddy made a 3, but Prahalis made a pair of free throws with 9.8 seconds left to close the scoring.

    Kristen McCarthy led Temple (2-1) with 14 points.

    Temple reeled off six quick points to open the second half to pull to within two, but the Buckeyes responded and had their biggest margin, 53-37, with 10:08 left.
