The Gophers face Ohio State in the final game Thursday, starting at about 8 p.m. The Buckeyes, led by Big Ten Freshman of the Year D’Angelo Russell, have been inconsistent at best this season, but a talented roster has brought them to a sure NCAA berth anyway. Ohio State was blown out 72-48 at home by Wisconsin on Sunday.
