Jody Victor : Buckeyes Upset By Hoyas In Second Round

Jody Victor: It was a bitter loss in Dayton for Ohio State (26-6), making its first tournament appearance since an NCAA investigation into the program while Jim O'Brien was the head coach led to four trips from 1999-2002 being erased from the books.

Perhaps the only good sign for the Buckeyes was that their top outside shooter, Je'Kel Foster, came out of a lengthy shooting funk to hit three consecutive long 3-pointers that cut the Hoyas' lead to 22-19.

At least the quiet ride home didn't take long for Ohio State, which only came an hour down the road from Columbus. They can try again next year.

Go Bucks!
