Comparing basketball teams across different eras is not an easy task. The game today is drastically different than it was back when, say, George Mikan was its most dominant force.
That being said, the task becomes that much more difficult when selecting the greatest teams from a program as decorated as Ohio State’s. Yes, the Buckeyes are better known for the successes of their football counterparts, but the basketball program is nothing to sneeze at.
In fact, there have been 11 Final Four appearances in Ohio State history—good enough for sixth of all time.
Those teams that did not at least make the Final Four were not considered for this list. After all, if enough Buckeye rosters reached college basketball’s grandest stage, it becomes hard to crack a top-five list if yours didn’t.
With that in mind, here are the top-five seasons in Ohio State basketball history.
