If Lawson played there is no way that game ends up 66-55. Lawson would have added about 7 possessions per team and that game would have been more like 74-62. He plays that fast.
OSU did a great job on the defensive end. Hunter is a very good shot blocker and Koufus moves his feet well and takes up a ton of space.
Diebler reminds me of former Syracuse guard Gerry McNamara. The range, the stroke - he is going to be a scorer.
The refs really let both sides play. Big Ten basketball can be tough to watch. Kinda like the WWE sometimes.
All in all, good game. Not as good as last year's classic, but tough, gritty game on both sides. Both teams left it all on the floor and thats all you can ask.
