Ohio State has a date with Iowa State Friday night at 9:50 in the NCAA Tournament. The Buckeye coaches spent Monday learning everything they could about the Cyclones, while the players had the day off. They'll practice Tuesday in Columbus, then head to Tulsa Wednesday. The Buckeyes have an open practice and media session on Thursday and then meet the Big 12 tournament champs Friday night.
Chris Holtmann hopes to keep his personal NCAA tournament streak alive. He's 4 for 4 in first round games. This one will be a challenge though, as the 11th-seeded Buckeyes are a 6-point underdog to the 6th-seeded Cyclones.
On Bucksline Monday night, 610 WTVN basketball analyst and former Buckeye captain Tony White joined me as we talked about the match-up, the Buckeyes performance at the Big Ten Tournament, the future and more. You can check out the replay here. Thanks to Lori Schmidt for helping get it posted!!
