Ohio State is the No. 11 seed and will travel out west to Tulsa, Oklahoma to face the Big Twelve Tournament Champion Iowa State.

We begin with the Iowa Hawkeyes.

Iowa State won the Big 12 Tournament title after beating Baylor, Kansas State and Kansas; all three are NCAA Tournament teams.

Cincinnati Bearcats are 7-3 ATS in their last 10 non-conference games and are 3-7 ATS in their last 10 NCAA Tournament games and are 2-6 ATS in their last 8 games following a ATS win. The Aggies come into the tournament with a 17-game winning streak. The Cardinals have beaten four Associated Press Top 25 teams this year and stand at No. 22 in the nation in the NCAA's NET rankings. While Cincinnati doesn't reside in the Big 10, they are undoubtedly one of the more risky teams in the nation.

The Hawkeyes were paired in the South Region bracket with second-seeded Tennessee (29-5) and 15th-seeded Colgate (24-10). Iowa enters the tournament at 21-11 but has lost five of their last six.

Although Iowa has a flair for the dramatic and has been known to hang around in games they shouldn't (just ask Michigan), Cincinnati and their defense are a flat out bad matchup for the Hawkeyes in the first round.
