Ohio State's women's basketball team pulled off a big win over its rivals at the Schottenstein Center on Thursday.

The unranked Buckeyes upset 24th-ranked Michigan, 78-69, for their first win in their last three games against their rivals and their third win over a ranked opponent this season (along with Louisville and Minnesota) to improve to 9-6 on the year.

The game was tied entering the fourth quarter, 55-55, but the Buckeyes outscored the Wolverines 23-14 in the final 10 minutes to close out the game victorious.

Madison Greene led the Buckeyes with 23 points in Thursday night's win. Kierstan Bell added 15 points and led the Buckeyes with six rebounds and three assists, while Braxtin Miller had 13 points.

Ohio State lost its only game against Michigan during the 2018-19 season and its second game against Michigan in 2017-18 after earning a 78-71 road win in overtime for its last win over the Wolverines on Jan. 7, 2018.

The Buckeyes are now 2-2 in conference play this season and will return to the court at 2 p.m. Sunday for their next game at the Schottenstein Center against Penn State.
