NCAA Basketball Schedule, TV Times And More: Ohio State Faces Michigan State For All The Marbles

The Ohio State Buckeyes have one final game to earn a share of the Big Ten against the current leaders, Michigan State. Meanwhile, Cleveland State play their first game in the Horizon League tournament and Akron face Kent State.

It all comes down to one game for the Ohio State Buckeyes.

A full season that featured the Buckeyes in first place in the Big Ten conference for a good, long chunk of time comes down to the final game against the Michigan State Spartans, the team who just recently passed them for the lead. The Spartans losing to the Indiana Hoosiers coupled with the Buckeyes' win over Northwestern gives Ohio State the chance to at least tie for a part of the Big Ten conference lead.

Back on February 11, the Spartans beat the Buckeyes 58-48. The game will be Sunday at 4 PM Eastern time.

Cleveland State on Saturday will get their first game in the Horizon League tournament at 6 PM ET. Their opponent will be the winner of the game between Detroit and Youngstown State on Friday evening.

The MAC tournament will begin on March 7, but first the Akron Zips need to finish their regular season against the Kent State Golden Flashes on Friday at 7 PM ET. They have had a stranglehold on the conference for a good, long time so it's not a game that particularly matters much but after dropping two tough ones in a row they need to end on a high note and keep the Buffalo Bulls from chasing them at the last second.
