Ohio State's hopes of making the NCAA Tournament were dashed as the Buckeyes' bubble burst Sunday. Thad Matta's team will play in the NIT and open vs. UNC-Ashville on Tuesday, and the Columbus Dispatch, Ashville (N.C.) Citizen-Times, Cleveland Plain Dealer and The Associated Press (via the Akron Beacon Journal) have the story.
Bob Hunter of the Dispatch has a column on how it's hard to blame the NCAA committee for not picking Ohio State.
The women's basketball Buckeyes will find out their postseason fate tonight, and the Dispatch has the story.
Finally, the Dispatch has an OSU sports notebook, with notes on the fencing and baseball teams.
