Dienhart: Ohio State isn't done with their sensational season yet

Like Gonzaga, Ohio State also had a tough task on Thursday and fell just short of the closing number in an 81-73 victory against the 12th-seeded South Dakota State Jackrabbits as an 8.5-point favorite.

LATE-SEASON SURGE: After starting the season 3-7 thanks to a hard non-conference schedule, GW rebounded in the middle portion of the regular season and has surged down the stretch to pull six games above.500 at 19-13 overall.

Figure out how to watch Ohio State play South Dakota State on Thursday in the opening round of the NCAA tournament. He finished off the four-point play for a 74-70 lead and made all three free throws on the second, making it 77-70 with 64 seconds left. But Ohio State wouldn't be denied on this day in Boise, Idaho, as Buckeye star Keita Bates-Diop (24 points) out-dueled South Dakota State star Mike Daum (27 points).

No game time has been set yet for Ohio State's match-up with Gonzaga on Saturday.

As a result, he seems to acquire some “lady luck” which puts the brakes on his ability to spoil the games of others. The success of Ocean’s 11 has led to the development of a new spin-off, Oceans 8 which is due to be released in 2018.

Back in the NCAA Tournament for the first time in three years, the Buckeyes went all-in on the three, casting it up 40 times. During the Buckeyes' Senior Night on February 20, Holtmann expressed his love for Williams and mentioned that the sharpshooter's play has a lot to do with the program's success this season. Williams has averaged 13.4 points, 9.6 rebounds, 1.6 blocks and 1.4 steals per game.

Trailing by 10 with less than 4 minutes remaining, Key banked in a 3 from the top of the key and Daum connected from deep in transition to pull SDSU within 70-66 with 3:23 to go. But the Buckeyes attemptednine more total shots and won by 8 points. If not, he will always be remembered for helping his squad get their first win in the NCAA Tournament since 2015 after an incredible (and surprising) regular season.

David Jenkins Jr. got off to a hot start and ended up with 16 points. 4-17 6-6 16, Reed Tellinghuisen 3-7 2-2 10, Ian Theisen 0-0 0-0 0, Brandon Key 6-10 0-0 16, Lane Severyn 0-1 0-0 0.

GW put together a dominant defensive stretch over four games in the Atlantic 10 Championship, and knocked off two higher seeds, en route to the seventh tournament title in team history. OSU hit 12-of-40 (30 percent).
