There are 32 games for each conference. Then when there are 16 teams left, they all play each other until there are 8 teams. Then the 8 teams play for the final 4. And then the final 4 play, and the final 2 play for the Championship.

Is the Ohio State basketball team the best in college?

Yes they do because they are definitely in the Sweet 16. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- That depends on your opinions and allegiances. In my opinion, they are pretty close to being the best but I am biased. Others disagree and think that Duke or Kansas are the best teams in college basketball. It should also be noted that "best" is a relative term and it could be argued that various teams are the best at different aspects of the game.
