Ohio State prevents South Dakota State's bid for tourney upset

Penn State wrestling coach Cael Sanderson and Lehigh coach Pat Santoro addressed the media Wednesday in Cleveland's Quicken Loans Arena site of this year's NCAA Wrestling Championships

The fifth-seeded Buckeyes beat No. 12 South Dakota 81-73 on Thursday in a first-round game in Boise to assure their place in the round of 32. And we've got a gem coming tomorrow.

"Fortunately", Holtmann said, "we hit our stride at the right time with this group". Musa Jallow, who has played 21 minutes combined the last five games, started and logged 27 minutes in that one. With AP Photos.Stephanie Mavunga scored 22 points and grabbed 13 rebounds as third-seeded Ohio State routed No. 14 George Washington 87-45 to advance in the women's NCAA Tournament.

The only season George Washington's seniors have missed out on playing in the NCAA Tournament was past year, and that motivated them.

After the run-trading second half, the Buckeyes found a way to make the plays down the stretch, leaving the Jackrabbits 0-5 all-time in the NCAA Tournament. I dont think any words would be said.”. The Jackrabbits had their first NCAA Tournament win within grasp, only to watch it slip through their fingers by fouling Williams on the late 3-point attempts.

Gonzaga is 33rd in the NCAA with 2.6 blocks allowed per game while Ohio State is 38th with 2.6 blocks allowed per game.

Ohio State eventually settled in and finished 15-3 in the Big Ten under its first-year head coach who moved from Butler last year.

If Williams can continue to score like he did on Thursday throughout the rest of the tournament, Ohio State could possibly continue to shock the college basketball world.

The Buckeyes had a size in advantage inside - outside of Daum - and used it to their advantage on the offensive glass. Junior point guard Presley Hudson averages 18.3 and five assists per game. Bates-Diop averages over 19 on the season, and put up 24 in their tournament opening win over South Dakota State. He had success getting inside early before the Buckeyes closed down his driving lanes. Ohio State also needs good efforts from C.J. Jackson and Andrew Dakich in this game, during which possessions will be especially valuable. However, Oregon State leads the nation in 3-point percentage, commits the second-fewest fouls in the county and has held 17 opponents below 35 percent shooting from the field.

Even though Ohio State has only made it as far as the Sweet 16 two of the past three years, coach Kevin McGuff thinks his club has momentum going into the tournament.
