For college basketball fans, it's the most wonderful time of the year as the NCAA field of 68 was announced Sunday. It was no surprise that both Kentucky and Ohio State received bids to the tournament. The Wildcats are a #2 seed in the Midwest Region and will play #15 seed Abiline Christian. These two teams have never played against each other. That game is Thursday night in Jacksonville, Florida with a tip time of 7:10pm.
The Ohio State Buckeyes will be travelling to Tulsa, Oklahoma for their first round game. They'll be playing Iowa State who are the champions of the Big 12 Conference Tournament. Ohio State comes into the tournament losing 7 of their last 10 games. This game tips off at approximately 9:50pm Friday night.
Marshall hosts a first round game in the CIT Tournament is Tuesday night against IUPUI and it starts at 7pm. Jon Elmore needs just 20 points to become Marshall's all time leading scorer.
