Harper beats former team, Buckeyes advance

Linnae Harper has never really opened up about why she transferred from Kentucky to Ohio State. She's focused on the present and the future, which has the Buckeyes in the Sweet 16.

ESPN Stats and Information  

Kentucky's Evelyn Akhator finished with 23 rebounds in a loss to Ohio State. That broke the school NCAA Tournament record by 9, but was 4 shy of the NCAA Tournament record (from all schools), set by Texas A&M's Anriel Howard in 2016.
