Ohio State vs. Iona tickets: Getting in to the West Region

Don't get stuck on the outside. - University of Dayton

See what the going rate on tickets for Ohio State's path to Atlanta looks like.

With Big Ten champions Ohio State drawing a 2-seed and playing out of Dayton, OH, and Big Ten runner-up Wisconsin a five, the West region could really be the grueling one that makes or breaks people's brackets. Wisconsin actually finished the season ranked 3rd in defense, Ohio State finished 6th, New Mexico finished 12th, and Pittsburgh finished 17th. With tough test after tough test on Gonzaga's path, it becomes much easier to see why they have the longest odds amongst the 1-seeds to potentially make it all the way to Atlanta (to the Zags' credit, they enter with the 11th best adjusted D in the country though it was in the 70's/80's prior to the start of WCC play).
