Ohio State Picks Up Number Five Seed In NCAA Tournament

Ohio State Picks Up Number Five Seed In NCAA Tournament

We have some NCAA tournament second round action out of the Midwest region as the #12 seed South Dakota State Jackrabbits take on the #5 seed Ohio State Buckeyes in a college basketball matchup from Taco Bell Arena on Thursday.

Awaiting the Wildcats in the first round will be South Dakota State, who has won 26 games this season and captured the Summit League championship.

The Buckeyes seem to be returning to their old ways.

This is the 11th time in program history and the first time since 2013 that the Wildcats are headed to the NCAA Tournament.




The Buckeyes (24-8) are making their 28th NCAA Tournament appearance and finished tied for second in the Big 10 standings.

The NCAA Tournament teams are known with the bracket completely unveiled. Junior guard C.J. Jackson chips in 12.2 points and a team-best 124 total assists while freshman forward Kaleb Wesson tacks on 10.8 points and 5.2 rebounds per game. However the Buckeyes tournament stay didn't last long, losing to the Penn State Nittany Lions in the quarterfinals. Some teams have an easy route to a deep run, this year's Ohio State basketball team was not so lucky.

The Buckeyes are led by junior Kieta Bates-Diop, scoring 19.4 points per contest, and pulling down 8.8 rebounds. Give Ohio State credit, for hanging with and taking down some tough competition like North Carolina, Clemson, Butler, Stanford and Gonzaga. The Jackrabbits, who will be playing in their third-consecutive NCAA Tournament and sixth in the last seven seasons, are paced offensively by junior forward Mike Daum, who averages 23.8 points and 10.4 rebounds per game.
