Sun., 7:26 pm: March Madness: Ohio State meets Dayton in NCAA South Region

March 16, 2014
The Associated Press , Tribune Chronicle | TribToday.com

Sixth-seeded Ohio State meets 11th-seeded Dayton in the second round of the NCAA tournament's South Region.

The teams will meet Thursday in Buffalo, N.Y.

The Buckeyes (25-9) have been one of the most up-and-down teams in the field, rising to No. 3 nationally after a 15-0 start only to lose five of six and fall out of the Top 25.

Ohio State lost to Michigan in the Big Ten tournament semifinals.

The Flyers (23-10) lost in the Atlantic 10 tournament quarterfinals to keep them on the NCAA bubble. Dayton last made the tournament in 2009.

Meanwhile, as expected, Florida earned the top overall seed and is No. 1 in the South. Undefeated Wichita State is on top in the brutal Midwest, Arizona took top billing in the West, and Virginia heads the East.

The tournament begins Tuesday with a pair of First Four games, and things get going in earnest Thursday when 32 of the 64 teams in the main draw take to the floor.
