Ohio State’s winning streak is up to 10 in a row.

The fifth-ranked Ohio State women’s basketball team won its 10th straight game to start the 2024 calendar year on Thursday, defeating Minnesota 71-47 to improve to 20-3 on the season and 11-1 in Big Ten play.

MINNESOTA 13 11 7 16 47

Much like in its wins over Wisconsin and Indiana last week, the Buckeyes took control of the game with a dominant third quarter, outscoring Minnesota 26-7 in the first 10 minutes after halftime to pull away from the Golden Gophers after leading by only five points at halftime.

Celeste Taylor (14), Cotie McMahon (13), Jacy Sheldon (12) and Rebeka Mikulasikova (11) all scored in double figures to lead Ohio State to victory.

Ohio State has now won 10 straight Big Ten games for the first time since 2017, when the Buckeyes won their final 11 games of the regular season to earn a share of the Big Ten regular-season title.

The Buckeyes will look to extend their current winning streak to 11 games when they play at Michigan State at 4 p.m. Sunday on Peacock.
