Ohio State No. 17 In AP Poll Heading To NCAA Tournament

Ohio State Larry Johnson-Buckeyes football Rushmen-defensive line-depth chart

The Buckeyes are a No. 5 seed in the NCAA tournament.

When the at-large bids were announced during the Selection Show, it was no surprise to see Ohio State's name called.

To do what it takes to have that impressive run, Ohio State was able to step back, regroup, and prepare accordingly for the NCAA Tournament.

Junior forward Mike Daum is second in the NCAA in defensive rebounding (9 per game), third in double-doubles (21), sixth in points per game (24), and ninth in total rebounding (353).

Five players are averaging at least 8.2 points per game for Ohio State, they are Keita Bates-Diop (19.4), Jae'Sean Tate (12.5), C.J. Jackson (12.2).

The Buckeyes open tournament play on Saturday, March 17 at 1:30pm at St. John Arena.

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. Freshman guard David Jenkins Jr. chips in 16.1 points per contest while senior forward Reed Tellinghuisen adds 12.0 points per game. Defensively, Ohio State yields 66.7 points per game against the opposing teams. Stephanie Mavunga averages 16.5 points per contest, while grabbing 10.8 rebounds as well. Who will they be playing and where.

Chris Holtmann, the 2018 Big Ten Coach of the Year, guided Butler to the NCAA Tournament in each of his three seasons as head coach of the Bulldogs. The last two were wins over Buffalo and West Virginia in the first two rounds of the 2016 tournament.

If Ohio State were to advance past South Dakota State, they will face the victor between Gonzaga, the 4-seed, and 13th-seeded UNC-Greensboro.
