Not all is completely lost for the season with the Cleveland Indians and their 31-35 record.

Don’t trust the computers on Ohio State in the NCAA tournament: WFNY Stats & Info

D'Angelo Russell Ohio State Buckeyes

I can’t ever recall a dichotomy quite like this. The base support for this year’s Ohio State men’s basketball team has been lukewarm at best. A team some thought to be a top-20 contender languished for most of the season, stumbled into the NCAA tournament, and landed a No. 10 spot opposite 7-seed Virginia Commonwealth.

It’s no secret that the Cleveland Cavaliers were not a good basketball team with since-departed Andrew Bynum on the court.
