Congrats fellas.......job well done!!!!!
...and this one belongs to the Reds.
I think OSU is a dangerous, dangerous team right now. Especially if they get guys like Ross and Thompson to step up. If they can find 10-15 points somewhere unexpected that makes them very tough to beat. Over the past 8 games they are 8-0 with wins over IU, MSUx2, Illinois, and Wisconsin. That is about as impressive stretch as you will see.
Of the top tourney teams, I'm not sure there is one out there playing better D right now than the Buckeyes. That's what makes it very plausible that they can keep this run up. However, as they've shown this year, when the D has an off night, its blow out city. That was the story in both the embarrassing road losses to Wisconsin and Illinois. However, the blowout in Wisconsin preceded their current stellar play. Wake up call?
But their offense is still hard to watch. Glad to see Sam Thompson becoming an outside threat. If he continues to improve his jumper, the sky's the limit with his athletic ability. It's been fun to watch them develop, although I still think they'll have trouble winning their 2nd round game.
Can't win with 'em
Can't win without 'em
The one thing that really stands out to me about Ohio St. VS the rest of the "upper tier" teams is the fact they have a guy that is an offensive machine. Thomas can flat out score from anywhere, down on the block with his back to the basket or 5 foot behind the 3-point line with a hand in his face. One word says it all........STUD. They are a force to be reckoned with right now and they are gonna be facing non-B1G teams. He is a match-up problem from hell.

Buckeyes have as clear a path to the Final Four as you could ask for. Now time to execute.
What a shot! Congrats, gents. Hopefully IU can join you guys in the Sweet 16.
B1G 9-1 in the tourney ... wisconsin...

Great shot indeed so happy I got to see that one in person!
I was right behind the basket on the OSU bench side for the game winner. Row J ... it was amazing. Simply put: Go Bucks!
And no one knows how to put on a better tournament than the University of Dayton. I was watching the Ole Miss game tonight from Kansas City and the entire upper deck was empty. Not a problem here. ... Not a single empty seat at legendary UD Arena. I talked to Iowa State fans and a couple of IU fans today and everyone was raving about the arena and their weekend here. Frankly, Dayton destroys this tourney and does things first class. Well done!
Go Bucks! Go Flyers! And Go Reds!

Well KC did have a bit of a blizzard. That might have had something to do with some empty seats. Plus, The Sprint Center in KC holds around 19,000 and the UD arena is like 13,000-14,000.
