Ohio State Releases Video Of Locker Room Celebration

Ohio State celebrates in the locker room.

The NCAA Tournament has begun. Just 20 minutes into the start of the 2018 tourney, Oklahoma had an upset brewing, but couldn't hold on against Rhode Island.

Several other teams had upset scares as well, including No. 1 seed Kansas who trialed No. 16 seed Penn midway through the first half. Another team that fended off an upset was the Ohio State Buckeyes.

No. 12 seed South Dakota State gave Ohio State everything it could handle, but the Buckeyes eventually pulled away - thanks to Kam Williams' prowess at the free throw line.

After the game, Ohio State celebrated the 81-73 win in its locker room.

Next up for the Buckeyes is No. 4 Gonzaga. The Bulldogs finished the regular season with 30 wins, and many believe the team was under seeded entering its first round matchup.

The Zags also had to fend off an upset bid - defeating UNC-Greensboro 68-64 to set up a No. 4 vs. No. 5 game against Ohio State. That game is slated for March 17.
