Presley Hudson scored 28 points and No. 11 seed Central Michigan stunned No. 3 Ohio State 95-78 on Monday night to earn the school’s first ever trip to the Sweet 16. Cassie Breen threw the ball high in the air as the clock wound down and the joyous Central Michigan players jumped, screamed and hugged as they celebrated the biggest win in school history. The Chippewas had won their first tournament game ever in Saturday’s first-round upset of No. 6 LSU. With the upset of Ohio State, they advance to face No. 2 Oregon in Spokane, Washington, on Saturday. Central Michigan (30-4) out-rebounded and out-hustled Ohio State, hit a season-high 14 3-pointers and kept the Buckeyes at bay late in the game. The Chippewas got plenty of help in the upset from the unusually error-prone Buckeyes, who got behind in the first half and then were run over by momentum and couldn’t climb back in. Central Michigan led by as much as 23 points in the second half as Ohio State struggled to put together a run that would shift the tide.
