Freshman Tory McCoy was the only other double-digit scorer for the Buckeyes and everyone scored in the game except for Chelsea Mitchell.

The Eagles were led by Angela Coello Perez with 16 points and 8 rebounds and she was joined in double digits by Erica Williams who also almost landed a double-double with 10 points and 9 rebounds. Suffering their 11th straight loss, the Eagles prepare to open conference play and need to get healthy quickly. Two freshmen are out with injuries as well as a returning senior. Erica Williams is the lone player above the junior class and she is a senior as well.
The Buckeyes get a full week to enjoy the holiday and prepare for the Gophers as they come calling Wednesday in Value City Arena.
