Purdue has almost caught Villanova in BPI's latest ratings and rankings. The model, which predicts team strength going forward, is not buying teams like Oklahoma, Arizona State and Kentucky the way the AP voters are.

Everything working for Ohio State (0:25)

Ohio State debuted in Bracketology this week as a No. 9 seed. BPI thinks by the time Selection Sunday rolls around the Buckeyes will end up with an average seed of 5.7. That projection will improve to 5.3 with a win over Maryland tonight (and drop to 6.4 with a loss).

North Carolina's shooting prowess continues. Joel Berry II and Luke Maye have each hit 3-pointers in the first 4:27 of the second half. The Tar Heels, who lead Ohio State by 15, are shooting 57.9 percent from long range today, a drastic shift from their Wednesday loss to Wofford, when they shot only 28 percent from deep.

Ohio State coach Chris Holtmann got a technical foul with 4.7 seconds left in the first half. He was upset by a foul call officials made. He told CBS Sports reporter Allie LaForce at halftime he was frustrated by "Bad calls...I just didn't like that last call."

No. 5 North Carolina closes the first half out on a 18-4 run to take a 41-27 halftime lead over Ohio State at the Smoothie King Center. The Tar Heels have been powered by their 3-point shooting, hitting 9-of-16 shots from long range so far.
