Mike Daum led the Jackrabbits by averaging a double-double per game with 23.8 points and 10.4 rebounds per game while Brandon Key led South Dakota State in assists with 3.3 assists per game this season.

For the fourth year in a row, the Ohio State women are in the Big Dance.

The NCAA tournament selection committee seeded the Buckeyes as a No. 5 and sent them to Boise, Idaho, where they will play Summit League champion South Dakota State.

Ronaldo the hero for Real
Real Madrid won the match 2-1. "He's from another galaxy", Real coach Zinedine Zidane said of Ronaldo. Ronaldo's goals were his 17th and 18th in the league this season.

Villanova will play first round game against South Dakota State in South Bend, Ind. The Buckeyes are a No. 5 seed in the NCAA tournament.

The Sunday selection show followed a surprising season for the Buckeyes (24-8), who rose to the ranking of 13th nationally during the first season for new head coach Chris Holtmann. The Colonials finished the regular season with the fifth-best record in their conference and have gone 10-2 in their last 12 games after starting the season at 9-11. Redshirt junior guard Macy Miller leads a high-powered South Dakota State offense which is averaging 78.3 points per game. Defensively, Ohio State yields 66.7 points per game against the opposing teams. Junior forward Keita Bates-Diop led the Big Ten on the defensive glass and ranked 20th in the nation in that category.

The Buckeyes will begin their tournament run with a match-up vs. the Jackrabbits of South Dakota State on Thursday at 4 p.m. (16.1), Reed Tellinghuisen (12.0) and Tevin King (9.3). Freshman Kaleb Wesson is the only other Buckeye with postseason experience after going for five points and three rebounds in Ohio State's Big Ten Tournament loss to Penn State.
