    Please. Oden hustles. He plays very hard on defense and rebounds very hard. He's a very fundamentally sound shot blocker. He needs to become more aggressive on offense, demand the ball and hone his post moves. It's not really in his personality to "demand" the ball but he needs to learn that him having the ball is not being selfish, the more he touches the ball the more it helps the team. He may not be completely comfortable yet because of his hand so I'll give him some time, although he didn't do it last year either.

    He hustles. I don't have an issue with his hustle. At times I've questioned his agressiveness. As for the rebounding...did you watch the UT game? He was a beast on the boards.

    Also, the Bucks will be fine come tourney time. They're only going to keep getting better. Florida may, indeed, be the team to beat but the Bucks will be fine. They're learning to play with Oden. He wasn't there in the preseason and for much of the non-conference schedule. Don't forget, this is a team that hung in there at UNC w/o Oden and it's the same team that barely lost to the nation's #3 team on the road by two points.
    For every action there is an equal and opposite criticism.

    I agree that the Buckeyes should not be a 1 seed given the quality of some of the other teams out there (UNC and Florida being the obvious ones). The problem is really how ridiculously high people were rating them and all the hype they got. In this day and age, you can expect the hype based on the rankings of the recuits, but to actually see that hype "materialize" in the rankings was silly IMO.

    This team has the talent on paper to be one of the best teams. But the meshing and acclimation of the young players (so many young players) just takes time. And there are always the variables as to how each kid is really going to adapt to the college game, college lifestyle, etc. They may or may not play like a super-elite team consistently by the end of this year (they have had moments like that 1st half of the UNC game).

    Regardless they are a fun team to watch most of the time. I am heading down for the NW game tomorrow night to watch the new guys in person for the 1st time.

    I think that is a big key. Both need to stay aggressive and take the ball to the hole, not being content to eb solely perimeter players. Driving to the hoop especially is where Lewis can shine as a difference maker. Although both can get quite hot from the perimeter (and Butler shot it well all last year also), neither has that consistent nice release from deep. They need to be aggressive in looking at other shots to be at their maximum contribution level, and we need the veterans to be at the maximum contribution level this year. Lewis has done that in his best moments this year as evidenced by his 64 FT attempts. Butler has only been to the line 9 times and lately seems to get out of control when he does take it in there.
