I think there will be some interesting matchups, how will Jackson and Parker defend Thomas? I think he is a matchup nightmare because of his ability to hit an outside shot and also rebound on the offensive end. I want to see what kind of pressure Craft dials up on Cash.
Finally I think a lot will come down to how the game is called. Will the officials let the players bang or will they call it close? A close called game will benefit OSU more because Sullinger will get the foul calls against Gates. A brusing game like UC played last night will be in UC's favor if they can get Sullinger frustrated.
Coming from an OSU fan, they are playing at a high level right now. Ever since the comeback against MSU at MSU they have been playing some very good basketball. Hopefully they continue their roll and not peak in the Sweet 16 like they have in the past 2 years.
