Sponsored Post- Every year, teams hold their collective breath as the NCAA selection committee convenes to assign seeds and sites to the 64 best teams in the country. For many teams, the simple luck of the draw could mean the difference between cross-country trips on a few days rest, or home court advantage just miles from campus.
This year, quite a few draws hold significant promise for a handful of teams. Georgetown, Ohio State, Michigan, Michigan State, Kansas, and Kansas State have each benefited significantly from the seeds bestowed upon them by the committee, and look to ride something of a home court advantage to the Sweet 16.
Over in the West Region, the two seeded Ohio State Buckeyes will be playing just up the road at UD Arena in Dayton. Like Georgetown in the South, it wouldn’t be wise to bet against this two seed riding home court to the Sweet 16.

The following is a sponsored post by our friends at TiqIQ… Saturday may be your best chance this season to see a game in the ‘Shoe!
Despite a recent string of success for Purdue against the Buckeyes, ticket prices have declined 17% over the last couple weeks and currently sit at an average asking price of $134 – some 34% below the $206 average cost of Ohio State tickets. On the low end, you can get into Ohio Stadium for $58 with over 200 seats available for below the game average.
Surprisingly, as Fox News reports, tickets still available for purchase as of mid-week, a rare occurrence for a Big Ten conference game in Columbus.
The Boilermakers, after all, have struggled through their first six games, averaging 463.5 yards of offense per game in wins over non-conference competition (Eastern Kentucky, Eastern Michigan and Marshall), but losing (albeit close) to Notre Dame on Sept. 8 and being outscored 82 to 27 in conference losses to Michigan and Wisconsin over the past two weeks.
Quarterback Robert Marve and Caleb TerBush have been effective at times this year, but combined, have thrown eight interceptions compared to 12 touchdowns. Featured tailback Akeem Shavers, meanwhile, has failed to rush for more than 74 yards in a contest all season, while also seeing just 19 carries in his last two starts. Read More
