Ohio State’s postseason path is set. The Buckeyes will open the 2018 NCAA Tournament on Thursday afternoon in Boise, Idaho, as a No. 5 seed in the West Region playing against No. 12 seed South Dakota State.

Now the question is: who are the Jackrabbits?

Here is a primer on Ohio State’s next opponent

They have an NBA prospect on their roster
At 6-9, junior forward Mike Daum is consistently listed as one of the top professional prospects at the mid-major level. He comes into the tournament having averaged a double-double for the season: 23.6 points and 10.3 rebounds per game.

This season, Daum has been held to single digits just once: a 7-point effort against Missouri State back on Dec. 2. Otherwise, he topped 30 points in 11 games with a season-high of 37 at North Dakota State on Jan. 3.

Also: he redshirted as a freshman, so he’s the same class as Ohio State’s Keita Bates-Diop.

They have a star freshman, too
Daum has dominated the headlines, and deservedly so, but the Jackrabbits aren’t just a one-man team. Freshman David Jenkins Jr. is second on the team in scoring at 16.1 points per game and has been described by CBSSports.com national college basketball writer Matt Norlander as one of the top 20 freshmen in the nation and a future Summit League player of the year. Jenkins is listed at 6-2, 190 pounds.

They have NCAA Tournament experience
This is the third straight season that the Jackrabbits have made the tournament. In 2016, they were a No. 12 seed matched up against another Big Ten team in the opening round: No. 5 seed Maryland. The Terrapins fended off the upset challenge, 79-74, a game in which Daum scored 16 points in 29 minutes off the bench.

Last year, South Dakota State was no match for No. 1 seed Gonzaga. As a No. 16 seed, the Jackrabbits lost, 66-46, with Daum scoring 17 points.

Daum alone has scored more points in the tournament than the current Ohio State roster combined. In two games in the 2015 tournament, Jae’Sean Tate scored 19 points, Bates-Diop had six and Kam Williams did not score. Graduate transfer Andrew Dakich went to three NCAA Tournaments with Michigan but saw no playing time.

The Jackrabbits have never won an NCAA Tournament game, though.

They don’t rate well defensively
KenPom.com ranks South Dakota State as the No. 75 team in the country, its best ranking during this three-year run of NCAA Tournament appearances. That is one spot lower than Wisconsin, which finished 15-18 overall and 7-11 in the Big Ten.

Offensively, the Jackrabbits are ranked No. 41 nationally in adjusted offensive efficiency according to KenPom. Defensively, though, they are No. 148 in the nation. South Dakota State averages 84.9 points per game but has allows an average of 74.1.

South Dakota State also doesn’t turn many teams over. It ranks 347th – fifth-worst in the nation – in defensive turnover percentage.

They don’t have many big wins
The Jackrabbits have played a total of seven games against top-100 teams this season. Three of them were against the same team: South Dakota, which it split against during the regular season and then defeated in the conference tournament title game.

In those seven games, South Dakota State went 4-3. Its two best wins are against South Dakota, which is ranked No. 67 nationally. It lost at No. 9 Kansas by 34 points, beat No. 77 Buffalo by eight on a neutral court and lost at No. 20 Wichita State by 10.

The Jackrabbits do have a Big Ten win this year: an 80-72 win against Iowa on Nov. 21. Four of their wins came against non-Division-I opponents.

They technically aren’t rabbits
According to National Geographic, the jackrabbit is actually a hare and not a rabbit. No word on whether or not buckeyes are part of their diet.
