While the football team prepared for its College Football Playoff Semifinal matchup with Clemson, the women's hoops team took care of business on the hardwood, downing Indiana 92-82 on the road.

Stephanie Mavunga led the way for Buckeyes with a career performance on the boards. The forward had a monster game, pulling down a career-high 17 rebounds and adding 14 points for yet another double-double.

Ohio State also got a huge game from its star, particularly on the offensive end. Kelsey Mitchell led all scorers with 31 points. The junior finished 10-for-21 from the field, 2-for-6 from three and a perfect 9-for-9 from the free-throw line.

The Buckeyes controlled the game from the tip, never trailing and hopping out to a double-digit lead midway through the first quarter. The led gradually grew through the first and second quarters until Ohio State owned a 48-29 lead at the half.

Indiana battled back, outscoring OSU in both the third and the second, but it was not enough. The Buckeyes held onto their comfortable lead, coasting to an 92-82 win.

With the win, Ohio State improves to 12-4 on the season and 2-0 in the Big Ten. The team travels to face Northwestern on Tuesday in its second-straight Big Ten road game.
