Ohio State has been ranked in the Top 10 the entire season and for a very good reason. The Buckeyes are one of the most talented teams in the nation and have one of the best forwards in Jared Sullinger.
With Aaron Craft manning the offense, Ohio State averages 76.9 points per game (29th) and 15.8 assists per game (21st).
The Buckeyes have lost three games in the Big Ten, falling to Indiana and Illinois on the road and the most recently falling to Michigan State at home. Since being stunned with a loss to Illinois fueled by a 43-point game by Brandon Paul, Ohio State was on a roll.
The team won six games in a row after losing to the Fighting Illini, defeating fellow Big Ten contenders Michigan and Wisconsin in the process.
However, the Buckeyes weren't able to stand their ground in their toughest Big Ten matchup of the year on Saturday against Michigan State.
They portrayed themselves as a vulnerable in that loss, which has called into question their ability to close out the Big Ten title.
Nevertheless, as it stands right now, Ohio State will most likely win the Big Ten and earn a No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament.
