Sensabaugh, a freshman forward from Orlando, has helped No. 13-seeded Ohio State pull off 2 upsets in the B1G Tournament. Sensabaugh had 9 points in OSU’s opening-round 65-57 win over Wisconsin on Wednesday. Thursday, Sensabaugh scored 16 in OSU’s 73-69 upset of Iowa, the conference tournament’s defending champion.

The Buckeyes’ only hope of making the NCAA Tournament is to claim the B1G’s automatic bid by winning the conference tournament, which would take beating Michigan State and 2 more teams this weekend.

OSU vs. No. 4-seeded Michigan State is set to tip off in roughly 25 minutes. The game will air on the Big Ten Network.
