Buckeyes drop heartbreaker to Minnesota, 57-56
Ohio State saved its best for the final minute. Unfortunately for the Buckeyes, Minnesota saved its luck for the final seconds. After Raven Ferguson hit her second 3-pointer within :08 seconds to give OSU a 56-55 lead, Minnesota's Rachel Banham raced the other way and hit a runner with 0.4 seconds left to give Minnesota the one-point victory, 57-56.

The Buckeyes, No. 61 in the latest NCAA RPI poll, enter the weekend on the NCAA bubble and are looking for a strong showing to help boost their resume. Ohio State won six of its final eight games, including three in a row over NCAA tournament-caliber opponents in an 7-day span to close out the regular season.

The game will be televised live on BTN with Kevin Kugler and Stephanie White on the call and Lisa Byington on the sidelines. You can also watch the game anywhere at www.BTN2Go.com or with the BTN2Go app on your mobile device or tablet.
