2014 NCAA Tournament: Live updates for Ohio State vs. Dayton

In-state rivals Ohio State and Dayton meet in Buffalo, NY to tip off the 2014 NCAA Tournament.

I have a bad feeling about this...

All healthy skepticism aside, an extremely hot-and-cold Ohio State men's basketball team tips off their 2014 NCAA Tournament lives against the in-state Dayton Flyers. The Buckeyes by policy duck most non-OU Ohio teams, but they've got nowhere to run against a team with plenty of familiar faces.

The Flyers are coached by former Ohio State assistant Archie Miller, brother of Arizona coach (and fellow former Thad Matta assistant Sean) and showcase Ohio State transfer, guard Jordan Sibert. Sibert's turned into the long range threat the Buckeyes could desperately have used this season and could make OSU pay double for his departure for the program.

While every possible appendage we can cross is in said state and our billion dollar brackets have been filed, now the only thing left is for the two schools to tip off the darn thing.
