Minnesota womens basketball could be tied for first place in Big Ten

Lucas Middendorf

Coming into tonight’s home game with Purdue at 8 p.m., the Minnesota womens basketball team sits 1 game back from first place Ohio State and a half game behing second place Michigan State.

Both the Buckeyes and the Spartans tipped off at 7 p.m. tonight.

If things go the Gophers way, they could very well finish the night in a first-place tie.

For that to happen, Minnesota would have to beat the Boilermakers and:

– Ohio State would have to lose on the road to Iowa

– Michigan State would have to lose to Indiana on the road.

Currently, Iowa is beating Ohio State 41-34 with two minutes left in the first half and Michigan State is leading Indiana by one at 34-33 with 10 minutes left in the second half.

We will see what happens by the end of the night, but Minnesota has a chance to be on the top of the Big Ten before the night is over.

Watch for more updates throughout the night.
