COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - It's getting close to the only time of year when winning streaks mean much in college basketball.
No. 24 Ohio State, still dogged by a bad spell in January, is trying to stack together some solid games heading into the Big Ten and NCAA tournaments.
One of the key stats cited by postseason experts is a team's record is in its last 10 games.
The Buckeyes (21-6, 8-6 Big Ten), No. 3 and 15-0 at one point, have righted themselves from a 1-5 span to go 5-1 in their last six.
The next test comes Saturday against Minnesota (17-10, 6-8), which beat the Buckeyes 63-53 during their troubled times. The Golden Gophers are also desperate to build some momentum.
