The team bounced back and kept a steady lead throughout the second set before closing it out at 25-18. The score stayed tight throughout the third match and the Hoosiers finished it at 25-20.

Indiana took the lead early in the fourth set and the Buckeyes could not catch up, leading to a 25-8 decision.

Junior middle blocker Madison Smeathers led both teams in number of kills with 11.

Ohio State has a long history with the Hoosiers, having won 52 of its 79 meetings with them, including 11 out of the past 12 matches before tonight.
