The Ohio State women's basketball team wasn't selected to play in this year's NCAA Tournament, but the Buckeyes will have an opportunity to continue the season.

Ohio State was named Monday as one of 64 participants in this year's Women's NIT, earning the automatic bid for the Big Ten as the top team in the regular-season standings who was not selected to play in the NCAA Tournament. The Buckeyes went 14-14 in regular-season play, finishing fifth in the Big Ten standings with a 10-8 conference record.

Ohio State is scheduled to host Morehead State in the first round of the tournament on Wednesday. Game times will be announced on Tuesday.
