Last season, the Buckeyes claimed the Big Ten regular season title after posting a 25-win season for the third straight season. Ohio State lost to Maryland in the quarterfinals of the Big Ten tournament as the top-seed. Despite the defeat, the Buckeyes strong second-half of the year earned them a two-seed in March Madness.

Ohio State’s season ended prematurely after being upset in the second round by No. 7 seed Duke 75-63 at The Schottenstein Center. The Buckeyes will enter the 2024-25 season without some of its top players from last season, including guards Jacy Sheldon and Celeste Taylor who were both drafted into the WNBA.
