INDIANAPOLIS - The Buckeyes have played some of their basketball at the Big Ten Tournament in dispatching of Purdue and most recently Michigan. Saturday's 77-55 win now as Ohio State in the conversation as a potential No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament.

We asked a couple of the victorious players about the selection process as well as asking DeShaun Thomas about his newfound defensive prowess. Check out what the happy Bucks had to say after the game.
