Not that it matter much because of this whole tournament thing going on, but the latest AP Poll is out and Ohio State remains at No. 17 heading into the NCAA tournament. Some teams have an easy route to a deep run, this year's Ohio State basketball team was not so lucky.

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


On the season, Ohio State basketball averages 75.8 points, 36.6 rebounds and 14.8 assists per game.

Brutus Buckeye, the mascot for the Ohio State Buckeyes, performs in the first half against the Wisconsin Badgers during the Big Ten Championship game at Lucas Oil Stadium on December 2, 2017 in Indianapolis, Indiana. Freshman guard David Jenkins Jr. chips in 16.1 points per contest while senior forward Reed Tellinghuisen adds 12.0 points per game.


The Jacks are #1 in the NCAA in defensive rebounds per game (30), #8 offense (85 points per game), in the top 15 in three-pointers made per game (11), free throws made (566), and three-point percentage (40%). and in the top 25 in three-pointers attempted (896) and fewest turnovers (340). Tate averages 9.5 points and 6.0 rebounds in NCAA Tournament play while Bates-Diop adds 3.0 points per contest.

Head coach Kevin McGuff is making his fourth-straight NCAA Tournament appearance with the Buckeyes and his 10th appearance overall as a head coach. They were upset by Penn State in their opening game of the Big Ten Tournament. Give Ohio State credit, for hanging with and taking down some tough competition like North Carolina, Clemson, Butler, Stanford and Gonzaga.
