NBA Draft: The (potential) studs

Instant Analysis: No. 2 Arizona moves on

The game started how Ohio State wanted it to start. You couldn’t have asked for a better half of basketball. Arizona came in as a 2-seed and completely dominated its first match-up against Texas Southern but today was a different story going against the highly under-rated Buckeyes and D’Angelo Russell. Russell has stepped into the national spotlight by leading the NCAA in points per game by a freshman. And if you can remember Ohio State sent Arizona packing two years ago in the West Regional semifinals, but it didn’t happen this time despite a great effort from Ohio State. Arizona pulled away late for a 73-58 win.

BGOC: #6 Wisconsin at #23 Ohio State

One week from today, we will have the bracket of the 68 teams that have made the big dance.  Wisconsin will try to make its case for one of the four 1-seeds in this final week, and it starts today when they face the Buckeyes of Ohio State at 4:30 ET.  If a top team falls this week, and Wisconsin is able to put it on Ohio State today and then runs the table in the conference tournament, there is a good chance it could move up to one of those four spots.  Wisconsin has already claimed the Big Ten regular season title after it beat Minnesota on Thursday. Ohio State, a projected 8-seed by ESPN’s Joe Lunardi, is coming off back-to-back road wins where it faced a second half deficit.

A Weekend of Heartbreakers

Even the best Hollywood movie screenwriter couldn’t have written a more perfect ending for Michigan State on Saturday.
