INDIANAPOLIS (AP)—Tayler Hill hit three 3-pointers and scored 19 points as No. 14 Ohio State held off a late charge to beat Michigan 57-48 in the quarterfinals of the Big Ten women’s tournament Friday.

Kalpana Beach scored 12 points for the second-seeded Buckeyes (25-5), who shot only 38 percent. Big Ten Player of the Year Samantha Prahalis scored 11 points but went 4 of 15 and turned it over seven times. However, her five assists made her the conference’s all-time leader.

Carmen Reynolds scored 14 points and Courtney Boylan 10 for the seventh-seeded Wolverines (20-11).

Michigan used a 10-0 run to cut the deficit to 45-39 with 7:49 left but could not close the gap.

The Buckeyes are looking for their fourth straight tournament title.

They’ll play No. 24 Nebraska in the semifinals Saturday. The sixth-seeded Cornhuskers ousted Iowa 80-68.
