COLUMBUS, Ohio — Ohio State is a program very rich in talent and tradition. However, the talent is not necessarily dispersed evenly over all of the positions. The running backs, offensive linemen, linebackers and defensive backs produced by the Buckeyes are as talented as any university in the country.

The Buckeyes (27-7) advance to face the winner of Friday’s late game between No. 7 seed Notre Dame and No. 10 seed Iowa State in the third round Sunday in Dayton. Evan Ravenel scored 11 points for Ohio State, but it was Thompson who stole the show before a largely a pro-OSU crowd…
COLUMBUS, Ohio — Ohio State took care of business Sunday, beating Illinois 68-55 in front of a sold-out crowd on Senior Day. The Buckeyes needed a victory over the Fighting Illini, a team that demolished them by 19 points in Champiagn earlier this season, to have any hopes of sharing the Big Ten title. Five straight wins to close out the regular season put No. 14 Ohio State in position for its fourth straight conference regular-season championship. The Buckeyes needed Michigan to beat Indiana later Sunday to finish in a tie for first. “I am so proud of this basketball team,” Ohio State coach Thad Matta said. “A lot of people had them dead to rights a month ago and they haven’t lost since. “It has been a heck of a stretch coming from where we started after losing two games in a row, which he hadn’t done in something like four years, to now.” The Buckeyes (23-7, 13-5) were led junior Deshaun Thomas , who scored a team-high 19 points in what could be his final…
