After running through the Michigan Wolverines with ease in the semifinals, the Ohio State Buckeyes are just one win away from being crowned Big Ten champs in consecutive seasons.
Ohio State will face Tom Izzo's Michigan State Spartans in Sunday's Big Ten Tournament finale, exactly one week after both teams clashed for the league's regular season title in East Lansing, Michigan. After being held to just 14 points on 5-for-17 shooting a week ago, Buckeyes forward Jared Sullinger has averaged 27 points on 67.7% shooting during the conference tournament.
The two schools split their season series 1-1, and are each setting their sights on possibly garnering a No. 1 seed from the NCAA selection committee later in the evening with a win.
Here are the details:
Where: Bankers Life Fieldhouse, Indianapolis, IN
Game Time: Sunday, 3:30 pm ET
