Have wins over Purdue and Michigan State propelled the Ohio State into the NCAA men's basketball tournament?
It won't hurt, but the Buckeyes are going to need to beat the Spartans again in the Big Ten tournament to have a legitimate chance of making the field of 65.
OSU is playing better, but lost by a total of eight points to Indians, five to Wisconsin, six to Michigan State and five to Tennessee. One or two more wins would have really helped.
In Sunday's 63-54 win over Michigan State, the Buckeyes played with a sense urgency and ended up going on a 15-2 run in the last five minutes for the win. Defense was the biggest key as the Spartans committed 21 turnovers.
Do you think OSU will make the tournament? I know there are some opinions out there. Let me know.
