Ohio State women pull away to beat Minnesota 77-56

Ohio State women pull away to beat Minnesota 77-56

In their final home game of the season, the No. 19 Ohio State Buckeyes (20-9, 10-8 Big 10) host the No. 23 Illinois Fighting Illini (20-9, 12-6 Big 10) at Value City Arena.

So Liddell was hesitant to speak first, a freshman looking to delegate to upperclassmen and captains in their moment.

Michigan State SeriesMichigan State leads the all-time series with Ohio State 71-57. Less than two minutes later, Andre Wesson's made field goal in the paint leveled the score at 24-24.

Ohio State vs. the Big TenThe Buckeyes own an overall record of 837-738 against current league members.

Ohio State will face third-seeded and 19th-ranked Iowa in the quarterfinals on Friday.

IL only had two stars of this game.

Dosunmu's layup increased the IL lead to 51-47 at the 11-minute mark before Ohio State found yet another big run, this time to finally seize all control of the game. Truth be known, it could be more if not for points from the free-throw line for the Buckeyes.

Columbus Ohio was the place to be, namely the Value City Arena. Beyond not putting up a high volume of points, Frazier has also shot the ball inefficiently in those matchups, and the trend continued, as he went 3-10 from the floor including 1-6 from deep Thursday night.

Of Liddell, Holtmann said he was "phenomenal", adding that he could see such a performance coming out of Liddell for a couple of weeks now.

Ohio State had a huge game form three players, two of them came of the bench.

Ohio State has won seven consecutive games between the two teams; nobody now either coaching or playing for the Gophers was around the last time Minnesota beat the Buckeyes, in overtime, in February of 2016. With the Illini having just one game left on the schedule before win-or-go-home season begins, it will be interesting to see how Brad Underwood handles Cockburn's foul trouble going forward, as his quick trigger substitutions of the freshman have hurt IL numerous times down the stretch this season against tournament-level competition, notably the December 7 loss at Maryland to go along with Thursday night.
