    Call Ohio State the “team of the decade” at the Cliff Keen Las Vegas Invitational. Over the past 10 tournaments the Buckeyes hoisted the championship six times and placed outside the top five just once.

    Who will win the 2019 Cliff Keen Las Vegas Invitational? If you were using past results as a guide (which you can find here for 2018, 2017, and 2016), you'd pick Ohio State, as they won the last three Vegas Invites. But that streak may come to an end, as the Buckeyes will be facing their toughest competition since 2014, when they finished fifth behind Missouri, Cornell, Minnesota, and Oklahoma.
