(AP) Sixth-seeded Ohio State meets 11th-seeded Dayton in the second round of the NCAA tournament's South Region.
The teams will meet Thursday in Buffalo, N.Y. The Buckeyes (25-9) have been one of the most up-and-down teams in the field, rising to No. 3 nationally after a 15-0 start only to lose five of six and fall out of the Top 25.
Ohio State lost to Michigan in the Big Ten tournament semifinals.
The Flyers (23-10) lost in the Atlantic 10 tournament quarterfinals to keep them on the NCAA bubble. Dayton last made the tournament in 2009.
The schools are located about an hour apart, with their last meeting coming in the NIT in 2008.
Dayton is coached by Archie Miller, the brother of Arizona coach Sean Miller.
