CHICAGO - It is a short week for all of the teams in the NCAA Tournament, Ohio State included, as preparations are being made for unfamiliar opponents and in many cases unfamiliar locker rooms and arenas all together.
The Buckeyes will have some familiarity on their side however when it comes to playing in Dayton (Ohio) and while the team doesn't hold the best record at that facility it will be a short drive and promise to have a good amount of supporters in the Scarlet and Gray in the stands as the Buckeyes try to advance out of the region to Los Angeles (Calif.) if the team can beat Iona and then the winner of the Notre Dame and Iowa State game.
But at this point there is no looking ahead, even a little bit, when it comes to the NCAA Tournament. Up next are the Gaels of Iona and their high-powered offense that is led by MoMo Jones. The team is already looking at tape of what the champions of the MAAC are all about.
After Ohio State's win on Sunday however the team was given a little bit of a chance to relax and enjoy a Big Ten Tournament Title and a No. 2 seed in the West Region.

We were in the locker room to talk with the team after the game and get their thoughts about the season, getting to play someone outside of the Big Ten for the first time since 2012 and what they know about Iona. Check it all out here in our new video jukebox format.
