Iowa earned the No. 3 seed and a coveted double-bye to the quarterfinals in the 2020 Big Ten women’s basketball tournament, but its stay in Indianapolis was a short one.

The Hawkeyes fell behind 22-3 to No. 6-seed Ohio State Friday night and lost 87-66.

Maryland is the No. 1 seed after tying with Northwestern for the regular-season title. The Terrapins advanced to the semifinals, while the No. 2-seed Wildcats were upset by Michigan.

The championship game is Sunday. The winner earns an automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament. 

Maryland (1), Northwestern (3) and Iowa (4) were all top-4 seeds in the NCAA's latest top-16 release Monday.

Here are the complete pairings and schedule, with TV listings. Seeds are in parentheses, followed by AP rankings if applicable. We’ll update scores and pairings throughout the week.

All times central.
