COLUMBUS, Ohio – Ohio State will be looking to keep a couple of streaks going when it heads to Bloomington, Ind., on Thursday to meet No. 16/15 ranked Indiana. The Buckeyes have won back-to-back games over Top 15 teams and have also won 14 consecutive games against Indiana. This game was originally scheduled for Feb. 4 but was adjusted to accommodate other makeup games. Tip-off is set for 8 p.m. and the game will be televised on BTN.
- The Buckeyes and Hoosiers will be meeting for the 80th time when the two teams tangle Thursday night.
- Ohio State leads the all-time series 58-21 and has won 25 of the last 27 meetings, including each of the last 14.
- The 14 game win streak is currently the longest for Ohio State over any Big Ten opponent.
- It took a remarkable comeback last season to keep the streak alive as the Buckeyes made their last 11 shots from the floor, as well as going 6-of-6 from the line, to erase a 10-point deficit in the final eight minutes.
- That fourth quarter comeback was the catalyst for Ohio State’s late season push last year that saw them run all the way to the Big Ten Tournament championship game.
- Ohio State is also looking to continue another streak of knocking-off ranked teams. The Buckeyes enter the game at 9-1 overall and are coming off back-to-back wins over No. 11 Michigan and No. 7 Maryland.
- Indiana may be playing just as well. The Hoosiers have won seven of their eight Big Ten games with the lone loss being an 84-80 setback at Maryland. In the seven wins, the Hoosiers have outscored their opponents by more than 24 points per game.
- Buckeye guards Madison Greene and Jacy Sheldon are both coming off 20-point efforts in the win over Maryland. Sheldon has six 20-point games this season and leads the team at 18.0 ppg. Greene is second at 15.0 ppg and has averaged better than 17 points in the six Big Ten games after averaging just over 10 in the non-conference game.
- Junior Dorka Juhasz went over 600 career rebounds with a career-high tying 16 vs. Maryland. It was the eighth time in her career she finished with 16 rebounds. Juhasz is also just 169 points away from 1,000 in her career.
- Braxtin Miller does it all for the Buckeyes. In addition to being the leader on and off the floor, she led the team with a season-high eight rebounds in the Michigan win and then hit huge back-to-back threes in the fourth quarter vs. Maryland to give the Buckeyes the lead for good. She finished with a season-high 18 points vs. the Terrapins.
