Bucketheads Podcast: Ohio State’s living life in basketball purgatory

At 3-6 in conference play, the Buckeyes’ next few games will either get them on the right side of the NCAA Tournament bubble or send them straight to the basement.

NCAA Basketball: Ohio State at Illinois Ron Johnson-USA TODAY Sports

During episode 63, Connor and Justin break down Ohio State’s precarious position in both the Big Ten and the NCAA Tournament picture. At 3-6, a Big Ten title is clearly out of reach. But with only three games separating the second-place team and the 12th-place team, everything else is a crapshoot. Relatively speaking, any team can slide up or down the standings over the next six weeks and it would not be a surprise.

Similarly, the Buckeyes currently sit on the right side of the NCAA Tournament bubble as a projected 11-seed, likely playing at the University of Dayton in the first four. A few wins could slide them into a better position and avoid that situation. A few more losses could drop them off the bubble completely.

The guys close with an “Around the Horn” style whip-around, with Justin discussing every B1G team for exactly 20 seconds.
