Braden Kuhn is barely hanging on.

At least that’s how it appears. The slender and toned, six-foot-four diver is bouncing up and down on the three-meter board, teetering high above the water with only his toes gripping the edge of the sea-green plank.

For a moment, nothing moves.

Ohio Northern’s natatorium, filled with once-raucous spectators, falls silent. Both teams in attendance watch in anticipation from the deck.

With a thrilling double-overtime win at Marietta on Saturday, the 24th-ranked ONU women’s basketball team clinched their fourth straight OAC regular season championship. Now, they must pivot quickly to the OAC Tournament, which will likely pose as a ‘must-win’ situation for the Polar Bears.

Despite their 21-4 overall record, national ranking and regular season conference title, Ohio Northern will likely need to win the OAC Tournament this week -- or at least make it to the championship game -- to qualify for their third straight NCAA Tournament.
