COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- Samantha Prahalis scored 30 points and Tayler Hill added 28 Monday to rally No. 8 Ohio State from a 15-point first-half deficit for an 84-71 victory over Iowa, keeping the Buckeyes perfect this season.

The Buckeyes (15-0, 2-0 Big Ten) are off to their best start during the NCAA era.

They trailed by 15 in the first half but scored 23 of the next 26 points to take the lead and then pulled away. Ohio State hit 10 of 15 3-pointers, including 4 of 6 by Prahalis and 5 of 7 by Hill, the Big Ten's leading scorer.

Morgan Johnson had 25, Kamille Wahlin 17 and Jaime Printy 13 for Iowa (9-6, 1-1), which had a three-game winning streak stopped.
