Ohio State avoided being yet another victim of the classic 12-5 upset with an 81-73 win over South Dakota State. The Jackrabbits tied the game at 70 with a 10-0 run late but Kam Williams' 3 and free throw gave the Buckeyes complete control in the final minute. Entering today at least one 12 seed had won its opening game in 29 of the 33 years since the tournament expanded.

Ohio State is the first team to attempt 40 three-pointers in an NCAA tournament game since Drake attempted 42 against Western Kentucky in the 2008 Round of 64.

It looks like the 3-point line is going to be very important in this Ohio State-SDSU game. Both teams each hit nine 3s in the first half. SDSU's Brandon Key and Mike Daum and Ohio State's C.J. Jackson and Keita Bates-Diop each have 3 from beyond the arc. The Buckeyes averaged 6.8 made 3s per game coming in.
