ANN ARBOR, Mich. – Stacey Thomas scored 26 points and Alayne Ingram added 21 as Michigan dominated 22nd-ranked Ohio State in overtime, winning 85-71 Friday night. The loss was the second straight and third in four games for the Buckeyes (13-6, 6-3 Big Ten), who were paced by 18 points from Marrita Porter and 16 from Larecha Jones. Michigan (13-6, 5-4), which beat Ohio State for just the second time in their last 11 meetings, has won four straight after a five-game losing streak. The Wolverines led by as many as 16 points in the first half, but the Buckeyes rallied and tied it at 66 on Porter’s basket with 29.3 seconds remaining. Both teams had chances to win in regulation, but Ingram’s 3-pointer was off the mark for Michigan and Jones missed a desperation heave at the buzzer.
