Ashley Adams added 14 points and eight rebounds for the ninth-seeded Buckeyes (18-12), who advanced to face top-seeded and eighth-ranked Penn State in the quarterfinals Friday.
Rachel Banham had 20 points, including four 3-pointers, for the Golden Gophers (18-13) but didn't get much help. Banham was 7 of 16 from the floor; her teammates were a combined 11 of 45.
Ohio State trailed by as many as nine in the first half and was down 27-24 early in the second.

The eighth-seeded Gophers could get no closer than nine points down the rest of the way.
The Buckeyes scored 19 points off 16 Minnesota turnovers.
