Ohio State locks up number seed of East Region of NCAA Tournament

The best part of the NCAA college basketball is officially underway as March Madness is about to commence with all the best teams in the country going head-to-head in an effort to win a National championship. Even though most underdogs don’t make it past the first or second round, there is always a chance of an inspiration Cinderella story.

One of the few teams in the NCAA Tournament that won’t be considered a possible Cinderella story is the number one team in the country in the Ohio State Buckeyes. With arguably the best team in college basketball and the projected number one overall pick in the 2011 NBA Draft, Ohio State’s chances are looking very good right now as they are without a doubt the best team in the East Region.

Along with only having a handful of teams in the East Region that could give them a run for their money in the 2011 NCAA Tournament like the North Carolina Tar Heels (2), Kentucky Wildcats (4) and the Syracuse Orangemen (3), the Ohio State Buckeyes have arguably the best player in college basketball in Jared Sullinger.

The first team the Ohio State Buckeyes will face in the second round (basically the first round) of the NCAA Tournament is going to be either Alabama State (16) or Texas-San Antonio (16). Obviously, unless there is a huge upset here, the Buckeyes should cruise pass either one of these teams on Fri. March 18 in their home state of Cleveland.

The first real competition the Ohio State Buckeyes will face in this 2011 NCAA Tournament will most likely be the Kentucky Wildcats (4) in the Sweet Sixteen (March 24-25). Until that time, the Buckeyes should have an easy road ahead of them.

We will update you on the latest odds for Round two once the online sportsbooks set the spread.

Second Round: Ohio State Buckeyes (1) vs. Alabama State (16)/Texas-San Antonio (16) Fri. March 18, 2011 4:40 p.m. EST
