NCAA: Buckeyes try to bounce back vs. Loyola, Md.

March 12, 2012

COLUMBUS (AP) — Ohio State won’t have far to travel to play in the NCAA tournament.

At the same time, though, the Buckeyes face a logistical nightmare.

The Buckeyes (27-7) will play 15th-seeded Loyola of Maryland in the second round in Pittsburgh on Thursday.

Since the game is just a half-day drive from campus for Ohio State’s mass of scarlet-clad fans, that’s good news.
