COLUMBUS, Ohio-The Ohio State men’s basketball team (23-7, 13-4) will conclude the regular season at home Tuesday vs. Illinois. The game will tip at 9 p.m.
A win for the Buckeyes would secure at least a share of the 2010 Big Ten regular-season title. Ohio State owns 17 league crowns, 12 have been outright titles.
Tickets for the home finale remain on sale at OhioStateBuckeyes.com. Day-of-game $10 tickets go on sale at 8 a.m. Tuesday.
The game also will be the final for five seniors. Kyle Madsen, P.J. Hill, Jeremie Simmons, Danny Peters and Mark Titus all will be recognized during pregame ceremonies.
The Buckeyes will be attempting to win Big Ten titles in football and both men’s and women’s basketball in the same year for the third time in five years (2006, 2007). No other Big Ten team has accomplished that feat.
