Ohio State Womens Basketball vs Minnesota


The Ohio State Basketball team, the Buckeyes, have improved their season performance to 18-5. They beat Minnesota's Golden Gophers 88-76 on Thursday evening.

The opposing guard, Carlie Wagner from the Golden Gophers scored 34 points during that game, which is starting to reflect a trend this season. The Buckeyes gave up 38 points to Katelynn Flaherty, a Michigan guard and Tori Jankoska, Michigan State guard in other games.

What worked for the Buckeyes was having Kelsey Mitchell who scored 25 points shooting 7 of 16 from the field. Mitchell actually scored four of the team's five three-pointers during that game.

Shayla Cooper is the Buckeyes only senior player and she also played well with a season best 18 points at 8 of 10 from the field. Stephanie Mavunga also performed well with a game best of 16 rebounds.

After Sunday's hot performance against Illinois with a season best 15 three-pointers, Ohio was slow coming from the three-point line missing the first five three-pointers. However, Ohio State showed their potential even though the first quarter was a tussle between the two teams. The Buckeyes started leading in the second quarter and by halftime, were ahead 39-31.

Mitchell took lead for Ohio State and pushed the offense in the second half. The Buckeyes were five for five from the three-point line in the second half and this matched the Gophers' offensive play. In the second half, Ohio State was able to keep its lead and beat Minnesota 88-76.

This win takes Ohio State to 18-5 and in the Big Ten, 8-1. The next game for the Buckeyes is Sunday afternoon in the Value City Arena where they host Nebraska.
