Which team is Ohio State's main basketball rival?

Wisconsin came damn close, and Chris made one hell of a case for Indiana with his story earlier- but Michigan is Michigan. The added fact that their team is so good this year really gave them the nod.

This is a disgusting poll question.  TSUN is the number one rival in every sport!  GO BUCKS!

It's always been Indiana. Wisconsin is a more recently heated rivalry and while Michigan is the school's overall rival, they are not #1 in basketball.

I agree - going back to the Bob Knight years at least.  Always a plus to smack down ttun, but Indiana is the top BB rival, with MSU a close second (at least that's my take)

Personally, scUM is our one and only rival, regardless of sport. I don't care if it's basketball, football, water polo, or shuffleboard, losing to them hurts more than losing to any other team and beating them feels better than beating any other team.

Michigan is #1 in everything in terms of rivalry, it would easily be Msu for #2 for me though.  Izzo and Matta have had some great duels over the years.

Ohio State has no other rival.  In anything.  Ever.  Okay, maybe Florida.

Not a traditional rival, but once they beat us in the NCGs for basketball and football within the same year, I considered UF a rival.
