Ohio State is officially back in the NCAA Tournament.
After a two-year hiatus, the Buckeyes heard their name called Sunday evening as one of the 68 teams chosen by the NCAA selection committee to play in the Big Dance.
Ohio State carries a 24-8 record into the NCAA Tournament after preseason projections had the Buckeyes finishing outside the top-10 in the Big Ten. The Scarlet and Gray finished second in the conference regular season before being bounced in the quarterfinals of the league tournament by Penn State, 69-68.
The last time the Buckeyes were in the NCAA Tournament was in 2015 as a No. 10 seed, when D'Angelo Russell led Ohio State to an overtime win over No. 7 seed VCU. The Buckeyes were bounced in the second round two days later by No. 2 seed Arizona, 73-58.
