Survive and advance.

The Buckeyes notched an NCAA Tournament win against Iowa State on Friday night, and now have a date with No. 3 seed Houston in the next round.

Ohio State's second-round matchup with the Cougars will tip at 8:40 p.m. on Sunday night in Tulsa. The game will be broadcast nationally on TNT.

Houston advanced to the round of 32 on Friday evening with a lopsided 84-55 win over No. 14 seed Georgia State just ahead of Ohio State's opening round matchup with the Cyclones.

The Cougars were the regular season AAC champions and enter Sunday's matchup 32-3 on the season with losses coming against just Temple, UCF and Cincinnati – all NCAA Tournament teams.
