The 2013 NCAA tournament field has been announced, and the Ohio State Buckeyes earned the No. 2 seed in the West Region, opposite top-seeded Gonzaga. The Buckeyes are not the only team representing the state of Ohio in the tournament, as MAC champion Akron also made the field.
A printable bracket is available right here. The Buckeyes open with No. 15 Iona and face a potential matchup with either No. 7 Notre Dame or No. 10 Iowa State in the third round. Akron, which earned a 12-seed in the South Region, has a tougher road ahead of it to get out of the first weekend. The Zips open with No. 5 Virginia Commonwealth, and should they advance, they face matchups against No. 4 Michigan or No. 13 South Dakota State.
