Back in 1993, the Ohio State women's basketball team, led by the great Katie Smith, made it all the way to the NCAA championship game. That was the last time the OSU women's program had beaten a team ranked 1st or 2nd in the polls (they beat No. 2 Iowa that year). That 24 year drought ended Monday night, when the Buckeyes took down No. 2 Maryland 98-87. It's the 10th straight win for the Buckeye women who are now a Sunday win at Rutgers away from clinching at least a share of the regular season Big 10 title.
All American Kelsey Mitchell led the way, scoring 31 points on 11-18 shooting. She also had 6 assists, playing virtually the entire game.
"It's a big win. We beat a great team," Coach Kevin McGuff said. "(Maryland's) had an amazing year to this point...so it's certainly a big one."
It was a fun night for the OSU women's program, who at No. 12 in the AP poll are knocking on the door of the top 10. Check out some of the fun, on posts from the OSU Women's basketball Twitter feed.
