The Basketball Buckeyes had it done to them, now they did it to Indiana last night.  OSU wins a 2OT thriller on a last-second three.  The win assures that the Basketball Buckeyes will finish second in the B1G regular-season, and gives them a chance at the conference title if MSU gets upset at WISC tomorrow:

Wisconsin didn't upset Michigan State yesterday, so MSU is the Big Ten regular-season champion.  OSU gets the No. 2 seed in the B1G tournament and will face the winner of the No. 7 Penn State vs. No. 10 Northwestern game on Friday.

The Basketball Buckeyes would be 24-5 if they hadn't played Penn State this season!

I seriously can't believe just how Penn State has had our number this season, of all teams.  Three losses in one year to any team is hard to come by, since they by definition have to be a league rival, but seriously, it's not Purdue or Michigan State here, it's freaking Penn State.

Probably looking at a 5 seed in the tourney.

The Big Ten tournament timing was incredibly stupid this year.  Jim Delaney sucks.

^ A 5 seed it is.

The 24-8 Basketball Buckeyes get a #5 seed in West and will play Thursday against South Dakota State.

The Basketball Buckeyes were eliminated by Gonzaga last night.

What a season of overachievement for this team and first-year head coach Holtmann.  And if they hadn't faced Penn State and Gonzaga, this season's record would have been 25-4!

Depends on who else we faced instead of them.

We might have run into UMBC and gotten murdered by puppies.

Last summer's The Basketball Tournament broadcast by ESPN and featuring some Buckeye Basketball alumni was quite entertaining.  It's returning this summer - with an opening round regional being played at Capital University in Columbus on July 20-22.

-- Team Scarlet and Gray, which made it into the Final Four is returning with William Buford, Aaron Craft, Jon Diebler, Dallas Lauderdale, David Lighty and Evan Ravenel once again on the roster.  Former Buckeye B.J. Mullens will joining them this year.  Last year's leading scorer, Jared Sullinger, hasn't committed to this year's team, but is eligible for the TBT.  Sullinger didn't catch on with an NBA team, but tore it up in the Chinese league - he had a 40pt/31rebound game(!)  Team Scarlet and Gray will once again coached be by Scoonie Penn and Evan Turner.

-- Another team with OSU alums might also join the tournament (if they get enough on-line votes).  This team - Big X - would feature Andrew Dakich, Jae’Sean Tate and Kam Williams from last season's OSU squad, along with former players from Michigan and Illinois.

Mullens and ex-Penn State star Talor Battle are joining them this year.  Last year's Team Scarlet and Gray leading scorer, Jared Sullinger, has also re-committed to this year's team.  And there's also one more big addition: 30-year-old Greg Oden(!)

^Seeing all those names still gives me heartburn over 2011.

And Aaron Craft could never get out of the NBA D-League (or G League now?) but Dellavedova, a sub 40% shooter, is still holding down a roster spot making $9.5m a year.
