COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Taylor Mikesell made six 3-pointers and scored 26 points to help No. 21 Ohio State beat Rutgers 61-57 for coach Kevin McGuff’s 100th Big Ten victory. Mikesell made two free throws with 24.2 seconds left for a 59-56 lead. Rutgers missed a long 3-pointer but Tyia Singleton grabbed the offensive rebound and was fouled at 3.3. She made the first free throw and intentionally missed the second but it didn’t hit the rim, and Jacy Sheldon sealed it with two free throws at 1.9. Sheldon had nine points, eight rebounds and five assists for Ohio State. Sayawni Lassiter, averaging 3 points per game, set career highs with five 3-pointers and 15 points for Rutgers, which lost its 10th straight game.
