Ohio Gov. Ted Strickland congratulated the Ohio University men's basketball team today in a press release for earning one of 65 berths in the 2010 Division I NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament. 

OHIO (21-14, 7-9 MAC) will play nationally ranked Georgetown University (23-10, 10-8 Big East) at 7:25 p.m. Thursday in Providence, R.I., during the first round of the tournament. Tickets can be purchased from the Ohio Universtiy Athletics ticket office by calling 740-593-1300.

In the press release, the governor congratulated all of the state's men's and women's college basketball teams that received a berth in the 2010 NCAA tournaments.

"Ohioans are proud of our women and men student-athletes for their regular season accomplishments and we look forward to cheering Ohio's teams on to victory as they drive toward the Final Four," Strickland said.
