No. 17 Ohio State women’s basketball crowned Big Ten co-champion

The Ohio State women’s basketball team had done enough before Sunday’s regular-season finale at Michigan State to secure a bye until the Big Ten tournament quarterfinals.

But the Buckeyes wanted the main prize of a Big Ten championship.

Of course, it was never going to be easy. But with a little help, they got it.

With a narrow win at Michigan State, followed by Iowa blowing out Michigan at home, Ohio State has been crowned a co-champion of the Big Ten regular season along with the Hawkeyes. Since Ohio State won the only matchup against Iowa earlier this season, in Iowa City, the Buckeyes are the No. 1 seed in the Big Ten tournament in Indianapolis, beginning on Wednesday.

Before the ball was tipped in the opening game, Ohio State was dealt a blow to seemingly the most important player on the court. Starting point guard Madison Greene, the team’s floor general and best defender, went out with a season-ending injury.
