Ohio State women’s basketball up to No. 2 in the AP and Coaches polls

The Ohio State women’s basketball team might just be the hottest in the country right now. After defeating Nebraska on Wednesday night, the Buckeyes have now won 12-straight games and have taken sole possession of first place in the Big Ten.

And, with all of that winning, you’d expect the team to have moved up the polls, and indeed that has happened. The Buckeyes are now No. 2 in both the AP and Coaches polls, just behind No. 1 South Carolina with an overall record of 22-3. It ties the highest ranking ever for the program.

There are just four games remaining in the regular season, with three games vs. non-ranked opponents leading into the season finale against a top five Iowa team on the road on March 3. That one could be for the league title at that point.

Rounding out the top ten behind South Carolina and OSU in the AP poll is Stanford, Iowa, Texas, North Carolina State, Kansas State, Colorado, UCLA, and USC.
