Minnesota 57, Ohio State 56
Rachel Banham nailed a jumper with 0.02 seconds to play to lift the University of Minnesota (16-11, 5-8 Big Ten) women's basketball team to a 57-56 victory over Ohio State (14-12, 4-9 Big Ten) Thursday night in Big Ten action from Value City Arena in Columbus, Ohio. Back-to-back three-pointers from the Buckeyes' Raven Ferguson in the final 18 seconds of play gave Ohio State a one-point lead with 13 seconds remaining, but Banham led the Gophers down the floor and drilled the game-winner to give Minnesota just its second win in Columbus all-time and secured the squad's first-ever Big Ten series sweep vs. the Buckeyes. Including the game-winner, Banham has 17 points, eight rebounds and two assists, while Micaella Riche pitched in 17 points, five rebounds, two assists and a steal. Kionna Kellogg also pulled down eight rebounds for Minnesota, while Leah Cotton had a 5-6 performance at the free throw line. RECAP
