After a huge Saturday, there’s only one top seed remaining in the West Region… your Ohio State Buckeyes. But- they face the Iowa State Cyclones, who’ve got the size to match up with OSU’s inside game, and are dangerous from beyond the arc; something the Scarlet and Gray has struggled with in B1G play this year.
For more on Fred Hoiberg’s team, check out Ken’s work from yesterday.
Join us and The Buckeye Blog, Buckeye Empire, Men of the Scarlet and Gray, and Buckeye Ninja as we cheer on the Buckeyes in tournament time! The chat will kick off around 12:00 PM Eastern, with tip off on CBS around 12:15.
Note: We’ve had folks gently remind us that this is actually the third round of the tournament. Sorry… we ain’t counting the “play in games” until the tournament expands to 96 teams.
