COLUMBUS, Ohio – The Ohio State women’s basketball team is ranked No. 3 in the latest Associated Press poll. Last week, the Buckeyes beat Michigan, then-No. 21 Iowa and then-No. 4 Rutgers to improve to 17-2 overall and 4-1 in the Big Ten. The Buckeyes are on a six-game win streak, are 7-1 vs. Top 25 teams and have won the last six outings vs. ranked opponents.

A No. 3 ranking in the AP poll ties the best ranking for any Buckeye squad. The 1992-93 Ohio State team was ranked No. 3 twice in March of 1993 before OSU went to the Final Four that season.

The Buckeyes travel to face Indiana at 7 p.m. EST Thursday in Bloomington, Ind.
