No. 8 Penn St. 71, OSU 56

COLUMBUS, Ohio – The return of Amber Stokes and 28 points from Tayler Hill were not nearly enough to overcome the Buckeyes’ cold shooting and the Nittany Lions’ stingy defense in the second half of a 71-56 loss to No. 8 Penn State on Sunday.

The largest crowd of the season, 6,802, was on hand as Ohio State built a 37-28 halftime lead, only to see it disappear in the second half as the Buckeyes shot only 27.8 percent from the field.

“We had mental breakdowns and turnovers. They scored five points because we didn’t box out. We didn’t pay attention to detail and the game slipped away from us. In the first half, we reversed the ball and played well. We have to find a way to play 40 minutes,” Hill said.

After missing more than four games because of a knee injury, Amber Stokes played 20 minutes, scoring four points and two dishing out assists.

Freshman Ameryst Alston, with 12 points was the only other Buckeye to score in double figures.

Ashley Adams scored five points and pulled down 12 rebounds.
