#10 Ohio State Foils Illinois Trap 96-84

After two straight wins over teams that are contenders for the Big Ten title, today’s game against Illinois had all the makings of a trap game for Ohio State.

#11 Ohio State Gives #24 Nebraska a Less Than Warm Welcome, 82-68

#11 Ohio State Quiets Hostile Crowd with 64-56 Win at Michigan State

#11 Ohio State Finishes Non-Conference Play With A 79-57 Win Over Washington State

Tonight’s game against Washington State marked the end on the non-conference portion of the Ohio State women’s basketball schedule. After seeing the departure of Brittany Johnson, last season’s best three-point shooter, and Jantel Lavender, leading scorer and rebounder in program history, at the end of last season, there were justifiably a lot of questions surrounding […]
