Ohio State vs. Iowa was most watched regular-season women’s basketball game since 2010

It was one whale of a game, and now we know that many were tuned in to see it all unfold.

The Ohio State women’s basketball team hosted No. 2 Iowa this past weekend and won in exhilarating fashion in overtime to move to just 1/2 game behind first place in the Big Ten and start to make a push for national recognition.

And it wasn’t just Buckeyes and Hawkeyes that seemed to tune into the thrilling matchup. According to NBC Sports PR, OSU vs. Iowa was the most-watched regular season women’s college basketball game since 2010. If you’re doing the quick math, that’s 14 years of games (on any network), which is mighty, mighty impressive. The game drew a whopping 1.93 million viewers on average.

Things peaked at 3.9 million viewers when the game went to overtime and saw the Buckeyes take control thanks to a 17-9 scoring margin to put the game away.

The Lady Bucks will now try to corral this momentum and take it on the road against Illinois on Thursday.
