The Ohio State Buckeyes have lost three of their last five games, but they remain a consensus two-seed for the upcoming NCAA Tournament.
Both Joe Lunardi or ESPN.com and Chris Dobbertean of SBNation.com have slotted the Buckeyes as two-seeds in their latest Bracketology updates. The three recent losses by Ohio State have come against their fellow elites in the Big Ten: the Michigan State Spartans, Michigan Wolverines, and Wisconsin Badgers. Nevertheless, Ohio State is a two-seed in the Midwest according to Lunardi and is a two-seed in the East according to Dobbertean.
The Buckeyes are not the only team hailing from Ohio to factor into the Big Dance's picture though.
The Akron Zips are a 14-seed to both Lunardi and Dobbertean. Cincinnati makes it in as a 10-seed for Lunardi, while they are one of the first teams missing the cut for Dobbertean. The Xavier Musketeers are one of the final teams in for both, nabbing a 12-seed in Lunardi's bracket and a 13-seed in Dobbertean's bracket.
Both the Kent State Golden Flashes and Cleveland State Vikings are on the outside looking in at the moment.
