The Minnesota Gophers women's basketball was given the No. 8 seed and will play No. 9 seed Ohio State on Thursday in the opening round of the Big Ten tournament.

The Gophers closed the regular season portion of their schedule with a 59-53 win over Indiana on Sunday.

Minnesota has already beaten the Buckeyes twice this season.

The Gophers seem to be hitting their stride at the right time. They upset No. 7 Penn State last week.
