Ohio State earn No. 6 seed in the NCAA Tournament

Following their 72-69 loss to Michigan on Saturday in the Big Ten Tournament Semifinals, the Ohio State Buckeyes were named the 6 seed in the South Region of the NCAA Tournament.

Ohio State (25-9) will match up with Dayton (23-10), a school located just 75 miles from OSU's campus. Despite their close proximity to one another, it is just the second time the teams have met in the last 26 years, the other coming in 2008 in the National Invitational Tournament. This game is actually the first one of the first round of the tournament, coming at 12:15 p.m. on Thursday on CBS. The game will take place in Buffalo and the winner will face either Syracuse (27-5) or Western Michigan (23-9), the champions of the Mid-American Conference, in the second round. The Broncos defeated Toledo, 98-77, in the MAC Tournament Final last Saturday to earn a spot in the NCAAs.

Dayton's head coach, Archie Miller, and one of his assistants, Kevin Kuwik, previously served as assistants under Thad Matta at Ohio State. The Flyers' leading scorer, Jordan Siebert, was a part of the Buckeye team in '12 that advanced to the Final Four. Dayton, which finished tied for fifth in the Atlantic 10 with a 10-6 mark, has beaten some good teams this year, notably Saint Louis, Gonzaga and California. Most recently, the Flyers lost to St. Joseph's, 70-67, in the quarterfinals of the A-10 Tournament on Friday.

After finishing the regular season with a win over Michigan State, the Buckeyes defeated Purdue (63-61) and Nebraska (71-67) in the conference tournament before falling to Michigan. 

It will be a contrast in styles between the two teams, seeing as Dayton (73.4 ppg) is more known for its offense while Ohio State, which allows just 59.8 points per game, is 12th in the nation in scoring defense.

Cecil, Kontak earn All-Ohio honors

After being recognized with Division III District Honors two weeks ago, Oak Harbor's Tom Kontak and Andrea Cecil did one better last week, earning All-Ohio honors for girls basketball for their performance during the 2013-14 season.

Kontak, now in his second season with the Rockets, was named the Co-Coach of the Year, along with Andover Pymatuning Valley's Jeff Compan and New Lebanon Dixie's Jared Crowe, after leading Oak Harbor to a 20-5 record, an appearance in the district finals and a second-place finish in the Sandusky Bay Conference. He is 36-13 in two years with the Rockets after going 91-44 in six seasons at Genoa (2004-10).

"What I'd like to think, over time, is we've been doing this long enough for people to recognize (our accomplishments)," Kontak said. "You have to win, that's part of the equation. Hopefully, we've won (and) we've won the right way. We've won with great kids who compete hard and are grateful to compete for the opportunity (to compete) for their school. That's what I like about this group. We'll have to work hard to improve, and that commitment will be the x-factor." 

Alongside Emma Barney, Amanda Hetrick, Athena Eli and Maddy Rathbun, Cecil led Oak Harbor to an 18-4 record in the regular season before the Rockets defeated Margaretta (59-31) for its first sectional title in six years. The Rockets beat Bucyrus (54-48) in the district semifinal before falling, 40-37, to Bucyrus Wynford on a 25-foot shot at the buzzer.

Because Oak Harbor has played so well recently, they're starting to get recognition from other teams around the state. In fact, the Rockets will compete in the McDonald's Holiday Tournament at Lima Bath High School on Dec. 29-30 with some other great teams--Lima Bath, Lima Central Catholic and Minster; and later this summer, Oak Harbor will join some of the state's best teams in The Battle of Fort Stephenson, a tournament that will take place at the Fremont Rec Center on July 27-28. The 16-team tournament, which is being organized by Clyde head coach John Cahill, includes Clyde, Shaker Hts. Hathaway Brown, Whitmer and Central Catholic.
