    COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Tayler Hill scored 19 of her 24 points in the second half, eight during a 10-0 run that helped Ohio State (No. 13 ESPN/USA Today, No. 11 AP) pull away from Northwestern for an 82-72 victory Thursday night.

    Hill, the Big Ten's leading scorer at 21.3 points per game, helped the Buckeyes (16-1, 3-1) increase a 55-54 lead with a 3-pointer and layup off a turnover. After Sasha Dobranic's jumper, Hill made it 65-54 with a steal that resulted in a layup and foul shot with 6:56 to play.

    Hill iced the win on a 3-pointer 45 seconds remaining for a 78-69 advantage. Samantha Prahalis added 20 points and Amber Stokes 11 as the Buckeyes rebounded from their first loss Saturday at Michigan.

    Dannielle Diamant had 23 points for Northwestern (11-6, 1-3). Ohio native Kendall Hackney scored 11 of her 15 in the second half.
