Last Time Out
The Ohio State men have not taken to the pool as a team since winning the OSU Invite back in November, the seventh time they have won their annual invitational.
OSU took the top spot in a field that included conference foes Iowa and Penn State, as well as Utah, Kentucky, and others.
Colin Zeng was undefeated in all three diving events, while the Buckeye swimmers dominated the relays, winning every single one. Individually, Ching Lim won both the 200 and 400 IM events in a fantastic weekend for the junior.
