Here’s a look at what the Ohio State women’s basketball team is facing as it heads into the postseason, beginning with the Big Ten tournament quarterfinal contest with Illinois at 6 p.m. tonight in Indianapolis.
The top-seeded and 10th-ranked Buckeyes will be looking to beat the ninth-seeded Fighting Illini for the third time this season and sixth time in a row, but the teams have some recent history in this round of the tournament.
Two years ago, Illinois upset the Buckeyes 64-58 in the quarterfinals on a Friday night at Conseco Fieldhouse, and last year Jantel Lavender and Co. got their revenge with a 70-53 rout.
This time around, Ohio State is hoping that a week off to refine some skills will help them meet their immense promise.
