2019 Tournament PreviewThe eighth-place team out of the Big Ten, Ohio State is dancing for the first time since 2015. The Buckeyes went 4-10 in Quad 1 games and 4-3 in Quad 2 games, but that was enough to sneak into the field. Ohio State wins with defense, ranking 27th in defensive efficiency, according to KemPom. Offensively, there's less to get excited about. The Buckeyes shoot 34.3 percent from long range, averaging 69.6 points per game (240th in nation). Senior guard C.J. Jackson (12.2 ppg, 4.0 rpg, 3.5 apg, 1.3 spg) is the top long-distance shooter at 38.2 percent. A 6-9 sophomore, Kaleb Wesson (14.4 ppg, 6.8 rpg) was suspended for the final three regular-season games but returned with a double-double in Ohio State's conference tournament opener. The Buckeyes avoided the play-in game, but they might find it hard to get out of the first round.
