OSU rewarded with No. 2 seed, game in Dayton

Posted: Updated:

DAYTON, Ohio (AP) - Ohio State was rewarded for its fifth Big Ten tournament title with a No. 2 seed in the NCAA West Region and a second-round game in Dayton against No. 15 seed Iona.

The Buckeyes (26-7) beat Wisconsin 50-43 for the Big Ten crown on Sunday, then learned they'd be going to Dayton to take on the Gaels (20-13) on Friday at the UD Arena.

Iona beat rival Manhattan in the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference tournament championship a year after getting an at-large bid to the NCAA tournament, where the Gaels are 1-9 all-time.

Ohio State, which reached the Final Four last year, won its third Big Ten tournament title in the last four seasons behind Deshaun Thomas and Aaron Craft as the 10th-ranked Buckeyes pulled away from the Badgers.
