Buckeyes women keep winning, cruise past Penn State

The Ohio State women’s hoops team is still on fire.

The No. 2 Buckeyes had no trouble taking care of Penn State on Thursday night. They led by 16 after the first quarter and never trailed in an 82-69 beatdown of the Nittany Lions on the road.

Four Buckeyes were in double figures scoring. Jacy Sheldon led the way with 20 points, two rebounds and six assists. Celeste Taylor and Cotie McMahon each had 16. Taylor had seven assists and seven steals.

Ohio State moved to 23-3 overall and 14-1 in Big Ten action; the Buckeyes have won 13 games in a row and haven’t lost in 2024.

They’ll be back in action Sunday for a matchup against Maryland inside the Schottenstein Center. Tip off will be at 2 p.m.

ICYMI: Buckeyes add pass-rush specialist to staff

Ohio State is adding to its talented coaching staff. A coach with college and NFL experience is joining the program.

Brandon Jordan posted on social media Thursday that he is joining the Ohio State coaching staff as a defensive assistant. Jordan served as a pass-rush specialist for the Seattle Seahawks last season and served in the same role during the 2022 season at Michigan State.

The 35-year-old Houston, Texas, native played at Illinois and went undrafted after the 2011 season. He spent time in the CFL, winning a Grey Cup in 2014, before entering a career in coaching.

The move to add a pass-rush specialist comes after the Buckeyes already filled their 10th assistant coaching role last week, promoting legendary linebacker James Laurinaitis to the linebackers coaching role. Ohio State toyed with the idea of adding a second defensive line coach alongside Larry Johnson this offseason before it ultimately promoted Laurinaitis.
