I am still waiting to see Matta play JS and Dallas together in the low post. I believe Dallas is continuing to play well and maybe at his best ever. These two together should allow us to get more rebounds and challenge more shots.

I would love it if Duke and Kansas were beat in a surprise upset.

If the Illini play the way they did on Friday night, they can pull the upset of KU. It's a big if because Illinois has been a Jeckel & Hyde team all year but....Go Illini!

Uptempo or slowdown, the Buckeyes have shown they can play at any pace you want to play them at. I agree with my man from Shippensburg and would like to see the two big men pound the boards, plus Dallas does add that shot blocking element down low. I also think the key for the Bucks going forward is going to be the play of Aaron Craft at the point and his defense of the other teams guard.

I hate it when teams hold the ball to slow the game down. There are high school teams that do that because there is no shot clock in high school and it drives me nuts. The buckeyes will run with the wind today and win.

Go bucks! Go Big Ten! Glad to see so many Big 10 schools standing yet. Today is a huge day for the conference. Good luck to all.

Note to George Mason: Bucks do not crash the offensive board like most teams. Rarely do you see more than two OSU players fighting for the rebound. They guard the perimeter to stop the breakouts and in anticipation of the ball coming out to them.

Please try to run. Lets see how many steals it takes before you decide that is a bad idea. Hopefully you will keep doing it until you are down 20.

You should be watching the Duke Michigan game also. I'm praying Michigan knocks them out. Duke worries me.

OSU is putting on the show of the tournament today. They got down early and just didn't fold in any way ... awesome.

Duke may worry somebody, but nobody seems to worry the Buckeyes.
