Ohio State Earns Share of Big Ten Women’s Basketball Title
Feb. 22, 2018


ROSEMONT, Ill. — Ohio State secured a share of the Big Ten Conference women’s basketball title on Thursday by virtue of Michigan’s 71-65 win at home over Maryland. It’s the Buckeyes’ 16th Big Ten championship and their second in as many seasons — they shared last year’s crown with Maryland.

Ohio State (23-6, 12-3 Big Ten) holds a one-game lead in the Big Ten standings with one game remaining. The Buckeyes can clinch the outright Big Ten title on Sunday with a win at Penn State.

The 25th Big Ten Tournament will be played Feb. 28-March 4 at Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis. Games on the first three days of the tournament will be televised on BTN2Go, with BTN and BTN2Go televising the tournament semifinals on March 3, and ESPN2 broadcasting the tournament championship game on March 4.
