COLUMBUS — Ohio State did not receive a bid to play in the National Invitation Tournament.
The Buckeyes (17-15, 7-11 Big Ten) were left out of the 32-team field, according to NIT committee chairman Reggie Minton.
Ohio State lost four of its final six games to end the regular season, then were one-and-done in the Big Ten tournament. The Buckeyes lost to last-place Rutgers in the first round, giving the Scarlet Knights their first conference tournament win in the Big Ten.
If the Buckeyes do not play in another tournament, this season will be the first since 2005 in which they do not play in the postseason.
