COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) – Martina Ellerbe drilled four straight free throws to start the second half to give Ohio State the lead for good and sparked an 89-78 win over No. 17 Purdue Thursday night in the Big 10 Conference opener for both teams.

The Buckeyes are the lone Big 10 team to own a winning record against Purdue and now leads the series 41-27.

The Buckeyes led by as many as 16 points with four minutes left on back-to-back layups by Raven Ferguson. The Boilermakers got no closer than 10 points down in the closing minutes.
