Minnesota won the Big Ten Championship by virtue of its 3-2 (23-25, 25-20, 25-13, 23-25, 15-11) win against Ohio State on Saturday evening. With the victory, the Gophers (24-2; 18-0) claimed their third Big Ten title and first since the 2015 season.

Regan Pittman posted a game-high 20 kills and a .594 hitting percentage in the five-set match. Samantha Seliger-Swenson finished with a game-high 58 assists helping the Gophers hit .315 as a team, while Stephanie Samedy finished with 17 kills and 21 digs for her 13th double-double of the season.
