Six days … three Big Ten titles. Buckeye fans offer up congrats on Facebook.

In the span of just six days – Thursday, Feb. 25 to Tuesday, March 2 – the Ohio State men’s and women’s basketball teams and the men’s swimming and diving squads all triumphantly hoisted 2010 Big Ten trophies high above their heads.

  • Although women’s hoops had sealed its sixth-consecutive conference crown with several weeks remaining in the 2010 season, the team officially started the week-long championships celebration last Thursday with its win over Northwestern.  
  • Men’s swimming and diving was next with some Saturday-night magic at its home – McCorkle Aquatics Pavilion. The Buckeyes, in the lead after three days of competition, held off three-time defending champion Michigan for the 2010 title. With true aquatics flair, team members and staff rejoiced the team’s first league meet crown in 54 years with a Gatorade bath and a rinsing dive into the McCorkle pool.
  • Men’s basketball started its quest to cinch up a share of the 2010 Big Ten Championship on Tuesday and with its victory over Illinois, partied with the thousands of Buckeye fans that flooded the Value City Arena floor until the midnight hour (see video player above).

The celebrations were not limited to OSU faithful in Columbus. Buckeye fans in cyberspace also provided many a shout-out to their championship teams on Ohio State’s official Facebook page, which now boasts a following of more than 261,000. Click here to become a fan today.

Edward Michael Maykowski It was great being there last night. I volunteered to work 4 nights and I was a “timer” 3 of the 4 nights. Last night I was timing with 2 OSU swim team members (who were NOT swimming) and we enjoyed it. It was fun. It was great to stop the attempt at 3peat by the school up north. First BT title for OSU in 54 years. It was GREAT. THANK YOU swimming Buckeyes.

Brayson Hinkle Congrats Bucks! Beating Michigan is always a sweet bonus
