NCAA Bracketology 2013: Ohio State searching for high seed

The Buckeyes could move all the way to a No. 2 seed if they're able to make a strong run through the Big Ten Tournament.

The NCAA Tournament is right around the corner. With conference tournaments set to take over the college basketball world the next couple of days, every team in the nation will look to add a few finishing touches on their resume.

The Buckeyes have locked up a seed, although a deep run against Big Ten foes could really help their seeding. The Bearcats seem likely to make the field of 68, although an early upset loss could make for an uncomfortable Selection Sunday.

According to the latest bracketology update from Chris Dobbertean of SB Nation, Ohio State is the No. 4 seed in the South Region. They would play Bucknell in the opening round. Cincinnati is currently trending in the wrong direction, and is now looking at a 12 seed.

Joe Lunardi of ESPN has Ohio State as the No. 2 seed in the East. That seems a bit high, and Lunardi is clearly rewarding them for playing a very tough schedule throughout the season. The Bearcats are on their way to a No. 10 seed.

Over at CBS Sports, the Buckeyes are picked to receive a four seed once again. Jerry Palm also has Cincinnati as a No. 9 seed, facing Missouri for their first game.
