The Ohio State women's basketball season ended unceremoniously on Sunday with a first-round loss to the Florida Gators. The Buckeyes were the No. 8 seed but had the fortuitous placement of being sent to Bowling Green for the first and second round games. They were not able to capitalize on the friendly environment and lost to the Gators, 70-65, in their opening round game.
Tayler Hill scored 23 points to lead OSU, including two buckets down the stretch that cut the Florida lead to just two. But OSU could never pull even with Florida, who moved on behind the performance of Jennifer George, who answered Hill at the other end. George had 16 points and six rebounds for Florida. The Gators will almost certainly play the No. 1 overall seed in the next round - an undefeated Baylor Bears squad led by Brittney Griner.
