Preview: Gophers women at Ohio State

  • Updated: February 20, 2013 - 9:12 PM

Gophers at a glance: Minnesota (15-11, 4-8 in the Big Ten) is looking to break a two-game losing streak, and Columbus could be a good place to do so. The Gophers defeated the Buckeyes 83-74 at Williams Arena earlier this season, with Rachel Banham scoring a team-high 24 points and Micaella Riche adding 20. Minnesota grabbed 22 offensive rebounds in that game, leading to an overall 44-29 edge. When the Gophers have struggled, defense has typically been the culprit. Northwestern shot 52.1 percent from the field in a 70-63 victory at Williams Arena on Sunday.

Ohio State at a glance: The Buckeyes (14-11, 4-8) have a nearly identical record to the Gophers but enter this game with more momentum after going 3-1 in its past four conference games. Former Minneapolis South standout Tayler Hill leads the Buckeyes in scoring at 21.1 points per game and is right behind Banham (21.3 ppg) for the conference lead.
