Ohio State will look to build on its tournament resume.

If the NCAA Tournament began today, Ohio State would be a No. 4 seed.

The NCAA Tournament selection committee revealed its top 16 teams on Sunday afternoon, and the Buckeyes were among the field, checking in as a No. 4 seed and No. 14 overall. 

The Buckeyes join two other Big Ten teams in the field: No. 1 seed Purdue and No. 3 seed Michigan State.

Ohio State is ranked No. 14 in the latest AP Poll – which came out before the Buckeyes toppled Purdue – No. 11 in the KenPom ratings, No. 16 in the RPI and No. 15 in the BPI.

The Buckeyes have quality wins against Michigan, Michigan State and Purdue and just one bad loss in the eyes of the committee, coming against Penn State.

The NCAA Tournament begins March 13, giving the Buckeyes plenty of time to bolster their tournament resume.
