    COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- Caity Matter scored 18 points and ignited a quick start for Ohio State (No. 3 ESPN/USA Today, No. 2 AP) by hitting her first four shots in a 78-46 win over Indiana on Sunday.

    It was the 11th straight win for Ohio State (22-2, 9-1 Big Ten) and came before 10,434, the third-largest women's basketball crowd in seven-year-old Value City Arena.

    The victory, combined with No. 23 Penn State's 50-44 loss to Purdue, gave the Buckeyes sole possession of first place in the Big Ten conference.

    Jessica Davenport was hounded by Indiana double-teams all day but still finished with 16 points and 15 rebounds. Ten players scored for the Buckeyes.

    Ohio State played its second game without starting forward Michelle Munoz, who is out with an injured right ankle. She is listed as day-to-day.

    Annika Boyd had 12 points for Indiana (9-12, 2-9), which has lost six of seven and nine of 11.

    The Buckeyes pounded the Hoosiers 52-30 just 16 days earlier, holding Indiana to a school record-low eight points and 12.9-percent shooting in the first half. The 30 points were the fewest ever for Indiana in a game.

    Indiana exceeded those eight points by the 10:39 mark on Cyndi Valentin's two free throws, but still trailed 22-10 because Matter had already outscored the Hoosiers.

    Matter hit her first four shots from the field -- including three 3-pointers -- to account for half of the Buckeyes first 22 points.

    Ahead 24-16 with 6 minutes left in the opening half, Ohio State stretched its lead with an 11-2 run to close the half. Indiana was then limited to just two field goals -- both by Sarah McKay -- in the first 8½ minutes of the second half and the Buckeyes pulled away to a 55-24 lead.

    Ohio State, leading the nation in field-goal percentage (51.8), relied on substitutes for most of the second half. The Buckeyes finished at 44.2 percent, one of their lowest shooting outings of the season.
