MINNEAPOLIS — Iowa women’s basketball will play in its third consecutive conference championship game on Sunday, taking on Ohio State.

The Hawkeyes and Buckeyes met one time in the regular season. On Jan. 23, the Hawkeyes took down the previously undefeated Buckeyes, 83-72.

Iowa will see a different Ohio State team on Sunday, however, as Buckeye guard Jacy Sheldon returned. Sheldon’s played in eight games this season, starting six, and averages 12.8 points per game.

“They’re much more dangerous with Jacy Sheldon, she’s a fabulous player,” Iowa head coach Lisa Bluder said. “Obviously, the press is something we have to prepare for. We did a good job at their place.”

Fourth-seeded Ohio State upset top-seeded Indiana, 79-75, on Saturday in the semifinal round to advance to the championship game. Second-seeded Iowa survived a test from third-seeded Maryland, 89-84, in the nightcap on Saturday.
