December 2, 2004

ATHENS, Ohio (AP) _ Ohio State matched the record for the most lopsided victory in the women’s program when the 11th-ranked Buckeyes defeated Ohio 107-37 Wednesday night.

Reserve Tamarah Riley scored 18 points in 18 minutes, and Caity Matter added 14 points for the Buckeyes (6-1). Ohio State also won by 70 points when it defeated Akron 105-35 on Feb. 22, 1977.

The Buckeyes made 40 of 59 shots (67.8 percent) while holding the Bobcats (2-2) to 21.2 percent shooting (14-for-66).

The rest of the stats were just as lopsided. Ohio State outrebounded Ohio 45-27, had 19 more assists (22-3), nine fewer turnovers (21-12) and six more steals (11-5).

The Buckeyes also made 10 of 15 shots from 3-point range and went 17-for-19 at the foul line. The Bobcats hit only 6 of 28 shots behind the arc and attempted just four foul shots, making three.

Ohio State scored 16 points before Ohio got its first basket when Lauren Revesv made a jumper almost six minutes into the first half. The Buckeyes scored the next 10 points to take a 26-2 lead.

Jessica Davenport, Michelle Munoz, Beth Howe and Stephanie Blanton added 12 points apiece and Candace Dark had 11 for the Buckeyes.
