COLUMBUS, Ohio (WTVN)--The sting of Friday's upset loss by Ohio State in the 1st round of the NCAA Tournament was made worse by messages received by Buckeye forward EJ Liddell.

Columbus Police are now investigating, after Liddell posted screenshots of some of the messages he received, with others threatening and racial in nature.

Ohio State entered the 2021 NCAA Tournament as a #2-seed, but were upset Friday by 15th-seeded Oral Roberts, 75-72 in Overtime, at Mackey Arena in West Lafayette, Indiana.
