A full bracket can be downloaded here. I’m not saying you will, but it’s here for you.
Perhaps this is why I strongly encourage anyone in the area that’s free on Saturday to get some tickets, presuming that they’re still available. It won’t interfere with the men’s game, which is on Friday, and the tickets couldn’t possibly be more than $40. If this promotional flyer is correct, and Ticketmaster isn’t deceiving me, the first and second round games will only run you $31.50. If you’re a student, and you’re staying in the Columbus area on break, that number dips down to a measly $20. An event like this, where the women’s basketball team is making the necessary strides to become a national title contender, should appeal to two types of Ohio State fans. First, local Buckeye fans and families who lack the necessary donation credentials or money to get football tickets often feel left out, but an event like this should be an appealing way of feeling closer to the athletics program. Consider it a warmup for the rapidly approaching Spring Game, which is also a big local event for people who often times don’t get football tickets. Second, the kids my age should find this appealing. I know, I think it’s often the people in my very demographic (18-25yr old male) who balk at the idea of caring about women’s basketball. I guess it’s not cool. After all, you gotta save money and calories to get nice and hammered to cheer at a football game. This is also true. However, I can’t think of anything more appropriate for that mentality than to be that guy that gets blind drunk and heads to a women’s basketball game to cheer his lungs out for the Buckeyes. Go on, be that guy. The more people there that are that guy, the better. It’s not enough to show up; you gotta create a scene too.
Tickets go on sale to the general public on Wednesday. If you can’t go, I believe the Sacred Heart Hospital University game will be broadcasted on ESPN.
