Thad Matta's men's basketball Buckeyes moved one step closer to moving off the NCAA Tournament bubble with a Senior Day victory over Michigan State Sunday afternoon, and the Columbus Dispatch, Lima News, Lorain Morning Journal and The Associated Press (via the Dayton Daily News) have game recaps. The Dispatch also takes a look at who's in and who's out right now, according to staff writer Bill Rabinowitz.
Bob Hunter of the Dispatch has a column saying OSU will probably need to beat the Spartans again in the first round of the Big Ten tournament this week to earn a berth in the NCAAs.
Doug Lesmeries of the Plain Dealer has column that also says OSU likely needs another win.
Sam Blackburn of the Zanesville Times Recorder has a column on how time is not on the Buckeyes' side.
A wrestling champion and the end of the men's hockey season are a couple of subjects in an OSU sports roundup by the Dispatch.
Finally, future basketball Buckeye William Buford fouled out in his regional championship game Sunday, but Toledo Libbey held on and is Columbus-bound. The Toledo Blade has a recap of Libbey's OHSAA Division II state quarterfinal victory, as well as a column on the future Buckeye.
