What Seed Did Ohio State Get In The 2014 NCAA Tournament?

Seed: For the upcoming 2014 NCAA Tournament, the Ohio State Buckeyes were given a 6-seed in the South-region. They are coached by Thad Matta and hail from the Big Ten.

Where: They will open play against Dayton in Buffalo on Thursday. 

Why: Ohio State finished the regular season with an 10-8 record in the Big Ten, a disappointing mark after the Buckeyes rolled off 15 straight wins to start the season. Ohio State posted notable victories over Wisconsin, Iowa, and Michigan State.

Ceiling: Ohio State was ranked third in the nation for a while during non-conference play, but quickly fell down the polls after losing four straight early in the Big Ten season. The most well-known Buckeye is point guard Aaron Craft, who is known for his lockdown defense and his improving offensive play. Overall, however, Ohio State struggles to score compared to some of their Big Ten counterparts like Iowa and Wisconsin, and if LaQuinton Ross doesn't come to play, the Buckeyes don't have many options on that side of the ball. I don't think that Ohio State is a great bet to go much farther than the Sweet 16.
