On Thursday, the Big Ten Conference announced the home and away conference opponents for each of the 14 schools in the league for this upcoming season’s women’s basketball schedule. Following a year of pandemic changes, the conference is returning to an 18-conference game schedule in which every team will face five other schools both home and away, four only at home, and four only on the road.

Following the regular season, the B1G Tournament will return to Indianapolis’ Bankers Life Fieldhouse from March 2-6, 2022, and then the NCAA Tournament will lead up to the Women’s Final Four in Minneapolis’ Target Center on April 1 and 3.

The Buckeyes will be facing three-time reigning B1G champ Maryland both home and away (for the fourth year in a row BTW), and though Kevin McGuff’s team finished seventh in the league during the unusual 2020-21 COVID season, they did have an impressive run of knocking off three-straight top-15 opponents, including the Terps in late January. The team will undoubtedly be looking to capitalize on that string of success now that things have returned to something more resembling normal.
