Indiana women's basketball loses to Ohio State in Big Ten Tournament after major comeback

The Indiana women's basketball team is in the semifinals of the Big Ten Tournament.

Getting to this point wasn't easy, though. Yesterday, No. 1 seed IU trailed in the first half before it distanced itself in a 94-85 quarterfinal win over No. 9 Michigan State. Today, the Hoosiers (27-2) face off with No. 4 Ohio State (24-6), which beat No. 5 Michigan 81-79 in another quarterfinal game on Friday.

IU played OSU twice during the season. The first was a 78-65 Indiana win on Jan. 26 in Bloomington. On Feb. 13 in Columbus, Ohio, the Hoosiers beat the Buckeyes 83-59.
