While Bates-Diop's 19.9 points per game continue to lead the Big Ten, OSU has really gotten a stellar effort from a bunch of other guys as of late.
22 points, on 7-11 shooting along with a ideal 7-7 night from the line helped Page lead her squad to victory. Her seven makes from the charity stripe move her into the top-25 on the single-season charts, with 114 conversions from the line this season. Carter also pulled down two rebounds, bringing her career total to 200, while her four assists tied a team-best. The Buckeyes went 3-0 without him, but they'll take the boost and his added 3-point shooting punch. For a team that shoots 42 percent from deep, MSU's ability to knock down the triple will be crucial for a team looking to win in an Allstate Arena which has seen the Wildcats go 11-3 at this year. The Nittany Lions also played strong defensively, forcing 10 turnovers - including eight from steals and six blocked shots. Pallas Kunaiji-Akpanah led the Lady Wildcas with 21 points while teammate Abbie Wolf added 11 poitns and Abi Scheid, 10 points.
Mostly though, Ohio State is leading the Big Ten and I think it will play with urgency needed to start what could be a ring-clinching run the right way - even if it's still a close game.
