Ohio State Women's Basketball Releases its 2017-18 Schedule

The Buckeyes will hope to win the Big Ten crown once again.

We knew the Ohio State women's basketball team would once again have a loaded non-conference schedule, we also knew the makeup of the team's Big Ten slate – two games against Indiana, Michigan and Penn State and one game against everybody else.

Now, we know the whole schedule as the team released its entire 2017-18 slate on Wednesday afternoon.

Everything is as expected, save for one change: the Buckeyes will no longer face perennial powerhouse UConn this season, as previously announced.

Ohio State will now take on Louisville in the Countdown to Columbus event on Nov. 12 at Nationwide Arena instead of the Huskies, due to television demands and travel logistics.
