This is a good test for Ohio State as it prepares to head into the bulk of B1G play nearing the end of December. The Mountaineers are likely to be a fringe top 25 team heading into next season, having made the NCAA Tournament this past season in an uber-tough Big 12.
Th Buckeyes are looking to turn their luck around, on the other hand. OSU missed the postseason last year after many agreed they’d crack the field, thanks in part to several key injuries.
An official announcement is expected soon.
