The Ohio State University basketball Buckeyes have appeared in eleven NCAA final fours (Note: 1999 participation was vacated by the NCAA).

The Buckeyes won their only National Championship in 1960, defeating California 75-55.

Ohio State lost the championship game in 1939 to Oregon, which was the first title game ever, again in both 1961 and 1962 to the University of Cincinnati and to Florida in 2007.

Two times the Buckeyes made three consecutive trips to the Final Four: 1944-46 and 1960-62.

Below are links to the complete brackets, with scores, for all the NCAA tournaments where the Buckeyes advanced to the Final Four.
