The 2nd round of the NCAA March Madness Tournament  took place on Thursday. Basketball fans from around the area met at The Barn to watch their favorite teams play.

Many people came out to see Ohio State play Dayton, while enjoying their lunch break with fellow fans. Locals predicted a win for Ohio State.

"We are excited that the Ohio State Buckeyes are in the tournament today. My wife and both my daughters are alumni from the Ohio State University so we are big football and basketball fans so we wouldn’t want to miss the playoff game today," said Casey Summers.

"I love watching March Madness obviously rooting for Ohio State hopefully they’ll do pretty good here today, " said Scott Durant.

Unfortunately for area fans, in the last few seconds of the game..Dayton landed a shot and won the game 60 to 59. This loss has already put a dent in some Ohio state fan’s college basketball brackets.
