Mike Daum has averaged 26.6 points and 12.2 rebounds over the last five games for South Dakota State. SDSU was the number-seven seed in their first NCAA Tournament appearance in 2009. 7 seed in 2009. They won their first tournament game in program history defeating Miami 74-71 in the first round, before falling to Stanford 66-65 in the next round.

Nittany Lions coach Cael Sanderson said his team is ready.

Jones said some of Arizona State's greatest wrestlers were from OH, and Penn State's Sanderson said his college coach at Iowa State - Bobby Douglas - recruited well in OH and Sanderson's roommate, Joe Heskett was from Ohio.

Who We Like: This game could be tricky for Ohio State. I'm excited to be playing in a somewhat regional location.

"We were a trendy upset pick". I felt it in State College what energy feels like when a crowd gets going, " he said about the February 3 dual meet between Penn State and Ohio State in Rec Hall that Penn State won 19-18. "They're a team that's really well oiled and can play well together".

Thompson said having a tournament win under their belt will help the Jacks going into this year's tournament. "Injuries or no injuries, if you want to win, you have to go out and score the most points". I understand it. Maybe we had something to do with that with how we played late.

Villanova will come into the first round game as the No. 9 seed.

If it's unusual to think that Penn State could finish second at Big Tens and first in the nation two weeks later, well, that's exactly what happened between PSU and Ohio State past year, too. He is shooting 46.2 percent from the field on 16 attempts per game and 42.1 percent from three-point range on 6.4 attempts per game. "He's going to be a tough matchup for us".

Villanova is very fundamentally sound. "They are a group of guys that play well together". "Five (national) champions and all are returning, so obviously they have the fire power to compete at a really high level". Big Ten player of the year Keita Bates-Diop, also a national player of the year candidate, averages 19.4 points and 8.8 rebounds on a team with four players scoring in double figures. Buckeyes Coach Tom Ryan wasn't as definitive as his two-time NCAA champion big man. They think it's time to add to the other side of the ledger. It's been a journey, a great journey, and we hope to continue it through the weekend, " he said. "Now that we have an opponent, a location and a time, it will bring everything in focus and really energize us in the next couple of days". The game is scheduled for a 4:00 p.m. start time and it will be televised nationally on TNT.

The victor between SDSU and Villanova will face the victor of Notre Dame and Cal State Northridge in the second round on March 18 or 19.
