COLUMBUS, Ohio (WSYX/WTTE) -- The Ohio State women's place in the NCAA Tournament was revealed on Monday night.

The Lady Buckeyes (26-6, 16-2 in Big Ten) are the fifth-seed in the Lexington region and will play Western Kentucky in Lexington on Friday.

If they win, they'll face the winner of Kentucky, who's hosting the pod and regional, and Belmont.

The seed is a bit of surprise considering OSU, the Big Ten regular season co-champs, were ranked 10 and 11 in the AP and Coaches polls, respectively.
