Ohio State guard Sheldon returning for 5th season
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Ohio State star guard Jacy Sheldon said she's returning for a fifth year after missing most of this season with a leg injury.
Sheldon, who helped the Buckeyes make the Elite Eight for the first time since 1993, posted her intentions Wednesday on Twitter.
Under the caption, “Unfinished business,” Sheldon wrote: “I love being a Buckeye and I can’t wait to run it back with my teammates. See you next year Buckeye Nation.”
Sheldon only played in 13 games this season. The 5-foot-10 guard played well in the NCAA Tournament, hitting a late layup to beat North Carolina before Ohio State knocked out UConn, ending the Huskies' streak of reaching 14 straight Final Fours.
Ohio State lost Monday night to top-seeded Virginia Tech.
Sheldon averaged 19.7 points, 4.2 assists and 1.9 steals as a junior.
