GameThread: (10) Iowa State vs. (2) Ohio State

The West Region is in shambles, but Ohio State still controls their destiny. They seek to make their fourth straight Sweet 16 by taking on the Iowa State Cyclones at 12:15 p.m. EDT on CBS (Channel 1010 in Columbus on Time Warner).

With Ohio State looking to reach their fourth Sweet 16 in as many years and Iowa State looking to make their fourth all-time, the two teams meet in third-round action at the University of Dayton Arena in the West Region of the 2013 NCAA Tournament.

The Buckeyes improved to 27-7 with a resounding 95-70 victory over 15th-seeded Iona Friday night in the second round. This marked OSU's 9th straight victory since losing in a route against Wisconsin February 17th. The Bucks absolutely shutdown the nation's third leading scorer in MoMo Jones, and Aaron Craft and Shannon Scott delivered the same shutdown defense that helped Ohio State to the 2013 Big Ten Tournament title.

Iowa State, 23-11 on the year, more than handled their business against the 7th seeded Notre Dame Fighting Irish. After trailing ND 18-14 at the under-12 TV timeout, the Cyclones came out inspired and never looked back. Just 10 minutes later, they led the Irish 35-23 at half and would later cruise to a relatively easy 76-58 victory.

Now it's time we see who will face sixth seeded Arizona (winners against 14th seeded Harvard Saturday) in the Sweet 16. Below is your Iowa State-Ohio State GameThread. Be respectful of one another and bring the lulz. We'll all be better for it.
