A former version of this story stated that Madison Greene would play, but Ohio State sent an update at 7:07 p.m. that she was in fact unavailable. After McGuff had previously stated sophomore guard Madison Greene would return for Ohio State in its finale against Rutgers, that appeared to have been confirmed after Greene was removed from the team’s unavailable list ahead of the matchup. But then, less than an hour before game time, Ohio State released that Greene was actually unavailable and would not play in the matchup. The Buckeyes have went 1-3 in Greene’s four-game absence thus far after starting the season 12-3 in the first 15 games of the season, all games Greene started in. In Greene’s first game out, Ohio State put up triple-digit points in an 100-85 win over Purdue. But after that, the Buckeyes felt her absence in a big way, dropping games to Michigan, Penn State and Indiana. Greene was on the bench for the Indiana and Rutgers games, but did not play. In her second season with the Buckeyes, Greene is currently third on the team with 13.4 points per game while leading Ohio State with 4.3 assists per contest. She shot 42.7 percent from the field and 35.1 percent from three, as well as a team-high 85.7 percent from the free-throw line.
