However, sitting at 15-8, the Bucks are 20-11, if these games go as follows:
Wins: rutgers, purdue, @ nebraska, michigan, illinois
Losses: @ iowa, maryland, @ sparty
Nothing unreasonable there, although Rutgers and Illini are playing better this year. Even if one of those games slip, at 19-12, the Buckeyes are solidly in the NCAA tournament with wins over Villanova, Kentucky, Cincinnati, and a close loss to WVU.
