The Ohio State Buckeyes men's basketball team represents The Ohio State University in NCAA Division I college basketball competition. The Buckeyes are a member of the Big Ten Conference. The Buckeyes won their only National Championship in 1960 and have made a total of 21 NCAA Tournament appearances (plus four additional appearances that were later rescinded). The Buckeyes share a classic rivalry with the Michigan Wolverines, in which OSU has a 83 - 70 series lead. The Ohio State University is one of only two teams (the other being Villanova) to make an NCAA tournament appearance every decade since the 1930s.

The Buckeyes play their home games at Jerome Schottenstein Center which opened in 1998. The official capacity of the center is 19,200. Ohio State ranks 18th in the nation in average home attendance.

Thad Matta was named the head coach of Ohio State in 2004 to replace coach Jim O'Brien after being involved in NCAA violations which cost Ohio State over 113 wins between 1998 and 2002.
