The Big Ten hasn't sent a team to the women's Final Four since 2015. But this year, the league might open that door again.
Five Big Ten schools highlight this week's ESPN women's college basketball Power Rankings, and four key matchups will be played between those teams over the next several days. On Monday, undefeated Ohio State hosts Iowa (7 p.m. ET, ESPN2/ESPN App), and Indiana travels to Michigan. On Thursday, Michigan plays at Maryland, and Ohio State is at Indiana.
By week's end, the Buckeyes might have further solidified their place atop the Big Ten standings, or we could be looking at a bigger logjam.
