UCONN gets bounced out by the Buckeyes 73-61

Seattle, WA- Huskies' ball handling was a main concern in a loss to the Buckeyes.

In a world where both the Huskies and the Buckeyes were one of the teams to supposed to make the Elite Eight, one team would come true, while the other team would have to go back to the chalk board and start over next season.

The Huskies jumped out to 10-2 run in the first three minutes of the game, but the pace of the game was very fast paced, and turnovers came into play. UCONN had four turnovers in the first quarter, which lead to six fastbreak points for Ohio State. At the end of the first, the Huskies was hanging onto a two-point lead, 17-15. Things went south for the Huskies in the second quarter, because Ohio State was giving them a headache with their full court press. They went to being on fire to being colder than a winter in Minnesota. UCONN was getting punched left and right in the face with Ohio State's physicality. Each time UCONN looked like they were getting back in the game, Ohio State would go on a mini run to snatch back their souls. UCONN was down 36-26 at the break.

The third and fourth quarter was a grind it out game. The Huskies was doing their best to contain Cotie McMahon, but she was a match that could not be stopped. McMahon was having her cake and eating it. From scoring from the outside to mid-range shots, those big buckets were the key factors in the game. The Huskies attempted to make a late comeback but could not stop the Buckeyes from scoring.
