If the Iowa women need to improve their NCAA Tournament resume then tonight’s game at home against Ohio State is an opportunity. The Buckeyes are 10-2 and lead the league race while the Hawkeyes are 7-5 after squandering a late lead in a loss at Minnesota over the weekend.

Iowa coach Lisa Bluder says the Buckeyes have a lot of great weapons, but can also rebound the ball well. She says they only play them once and are glad to have them on the home floor.

Bluder says one of the biggest things to overcome against the Buckeyes is their confidence, as they believe in themselves and have a great culture and tradition of winning. Iowa is 14-9 overall.
