Ohio State Head Coach Beth Burns
“Obviously, it’s a very, very heart-wrenching loss for us. Credit Michigan State for being the aggressor in the second half. We did some things that were out of character for us for the first time I think. It’s our responsibility to improve on that in the future.

“Since the 22nd of December, our whole roster has changed (injuries) because I can’t take a players out for any length of time. Michigan State became aggressive and played in front of a great crowd. We did not have the poise under pressure to play on the road.”
