Top Seed Buckeyes Face UTSA in East

It looks like a college football spread if Ohio State were to face Texas San Antonio - 24 points, which would reflect the relative strength of those football programs.

It turns out the same holds true in hoops with the East No. 1 seed expected to romp over UTSA. It has been a tough road for the Roadrunners to earn the privilege of getting floor-stomped by the nation's No. 1 team.

They won the Southland Conference and beat Alabama State in a First Four play in game Tuesday. The Roadrunners are fast, but they can't hang with OSU.
