OSU Women earn 3 seed in NCAA Tournament

B10-Penn-St-Ohio-St-Basketball-8 Buckeyes headed to Boise as No. 5 seed
Michele Schwartz | 13 March, 2018, 11:33

This is the 11th time in program history and the first time since 2013 that the Wildcats are headed to the NCAA Tournament.

Ohio State finished as second in the Big Ten this season.

12 seed in the 2018 NCAA Tournament and will play No. 5 seed Ohio State in the West Region's opening round Thursday in Boise, Idaho. As a team, Ohio State is scoring 75.8 points per game on 48.6% shooting from the field, 35.4% from behind the arc and 72.6% from the foul line this season.

It's the same position the Buckeyes occupied after an early exit from the Big Ten tournament and is right about where you'd expect a No. 5 seed should be.

Junior forward Mike Daum is second in the NCAA in defensive rebounding (9 per game), third in double-doubles (21), sixth in points per game (24), and ninth in total rebounding (353).

The South Dakota State Jackrabbits got their invite to the big dance as the regular season and conference tournament champion of the Summit League, finishing the regular season with a 28-6 overall record, including a 13-1 conference record, with tournament wins over Western Illinois and North Dakota State before taking down in-state rival and #2 seed South Dakota in the championship game. Yes, one loss means that a season is over but every game now is at that point. Freshman guard David Jenkins Jr. chips in 16.1 points per contest while senior forward Reed Tellinghuisen adds 12.0 points per game. Andrew Dakich has played in nine postseason games off the bench while Keita Bates-Diop has averaged 7.3 points and 2.6 rebounds in his seven postseason games, three in a starting role.

Being the fifth seed in the west, Ohio State and their fans should be cautious as their game versus 12th seed South Dakota State should be on upset alert.
