Ohio State 83, Maine 70

COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Stephanie Mavunga scored 26 points, Sierra Calhoun added 16 and No. 8 Ohio State beat Maine 83-70 on Sunday.

Mavunga made 11 of 12 field goals and grabbed 16 rebounds for the Buckeyes (8-2). Her sixth double-double of the year came early in the second quarter when she notched her 10th point after playing only nine minutes.

Julie Brosseau had a career-high 29 points for the Black Bears (4-4), shooting 10 for 18 from the field and knocking down seven 3s. Tanesha Sutton registered a double-double with 18 points and 11 rebounds.

The Buckeyes had difficulty shooting the ball for much of the game and never solidified a tempo at which they're accustomed to playing. With 5:02 remaining in the third quarter, Asia Doss gave her team a spark with back-to-back steals and layups to punctuate a quick 7-0 run and lift the Ohio State lead to 16.

Ohio State star guard Kelsey Mitchell struggled from the field, converting on 3 of 15 shots. She finished with 11 points and five assists.
