Jim Foster Declines WNIT Bid

Following a disappointing season that saw the Lady Buckeye basketball team post its first sub-.500 Big Ten record in a decade, head coach Jim Foster and school administrators decided enough was enough and declined a bid to the WNIT.

Head coach Jim Foster confirmed to BuckeyeSports.com that he and members of the OSU administration had concluded it is in the best interest of the program not to continue the season by accepting a WNIT bid.

“We just have a couple kids that have put off some things that they need to have done medically and to ask them to do it a couple more weeks, just to me the players are more important than that,” he said.

Because both arenas on campus will be occupied, the Buckeyes would have faced a road game if they chose to play in the postseason, but Foster said that had not entered his thought process.

Well, then.
