Women's Basketball Earns At-Large NCAA Bid and No. 9 Seed

South Dakota State Men Open NCAA Tournament With Ohio State

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

South Dakota State's third straight trip to the NCAA Tournament will have them heading west to play a team from the Big Ten in Round One.

While South Dakota certainly has the potential to pull off the upset, the problem for me with South Dakota State got blown out by some good teams and some average, including a 20-point loss to Missouri State and a 34-point loss to Kansas.

The No. 5 Ohio State Buckeyes will take on the South Dakota Jackrabbits in the NCAA Tournament March Madness West Region on Thursday, start time at 3:00 PM ET, at Taco Bell Arena, Boise, ID.

Redshirt junior forward Keita Bates-Diop, the 2018 Big Ten Player of the Year, averages a team-high 19.4 points and 8.4 rebounds per game for Ohio State while senior Jae'Sean Tate adds 12.5 points and 6.2 rebounds per game. In their 10 previous appearances in the NCAA Tournament, the Wildcats have tallied a 7-10 record. The Jackrabbits were 12-2 in conference play during the regular season and have won 10 of their past 11 games.

Ford said he hadn't spoken to Elliott, and vowed to hold a news conference "in the coming days" but gave no specifics. The Liberals undoubtedly feel better about trying to overcome their extremely low approval numbers against Mr.

On the season, Ohio State basketball averages 75.8 points, 36.6 rebounds and 14.8 assists per game. Stephanie Mavunga averages 16.5 points per contest, while grabbing 10.8 rebounds as well.

Top-ranked Virginia has received the first overall seed in the tournament, which begins with "play-in" games Tuesday in Dayton.

In 2016, the Buckeyes declined an invitation to the less-prestigious NIT Tournament.

Ohio State is winners of its last seven games and are 11-1 in its last 12.
