The Ohio St. Buckeyes are co-champions of the Big Ten with the Michigan Wolverines and the Michigan St. Spartans.
The Big Ten regular season is almost over, but the Ohio St. Buckeyes already know where they stand in the final accounting. After defeating the Michigan St. Spartans, 72-70, on Sunday afternoon, the Buckeyes finish in a three-way tie for first place with the Spartans and the Michigan Wolverines. All three teams went 13-5 during conference play.
However, this outcome does not affect seeding for the Big Ten Tournament. The Spartans are locked in as the No. 1 seed, the Wolverines as the No. 2 and the the Buckeyes as No. 3.
The Wisconsin Badgers and the Indiana Hoosiers round out the top five spots, though the latter team is currently playing the Purdue Boilermakers. Both teams are tied at 10-7 and vying for the No. 5 spot.
