Ohio State: 2012-13 Big Ten Champions

The Ohio St. Buckeyes defeated the Wisconsin Badgers, 50-43, on Sunday afternoon at the United Center in Chicago to win the 2013 Big Ten Tournament. The win should lock the Buckeyes in for a No. 2 seed in the upcoming NCAA Tournament, according to SB Nation bracketology expert Chris Dobbertean.
Deshaun Thomas scored 14 points to lead Ohio State, which knocked out Nebraska, Michigan State and Wisconsin as the No. 2 seed on the way to winning its third Big Ten Tournament title in four years.
The Buckeyes, ranked No. 10 in the nation, could be in line for a boost in seeding after their impressive performance in the Big Ten tournament. Wisconsin, meanwhile, has a shot at a No. 4 seed, but could have jumped up to the three-line with a win, per Dobbertean.
The Indiana Hoosiers, who won the Big Ten's regular-season championship but lost to Wisconsin in the semifinals, still looks primed to earn a No. 1 seed in the Big Dance, although Miami winning the ACC Tournament title on Sunday could affect the Hoosiers' chances.
