coming into the tourney.  Hopefully another week off doesn't make us FLAT again.  Think, take high percentage shots, block out .... limit the wild threes early in the clock ... Tim

A win over Ohio U gives us a second round game against (most likely) Temple.  That's so much better than our last couple 2nd round games: #1 Duke and Oklahoma with Blake Griffin.

Being a Kent State grad, I'm pretty familiar with Ohio (not that Ohio).  They are streaky behind the arc, very quick, and athletic.  They rank near the top of NCAA in steals.  When their shots are dropping they can be a load.  At the same time, they dont' really have a lot of height under the rim and rely almost exclusively on their guards to make plays.  I'm still trying to decide whether I like this matchup.


Additional Note: Walter Offutt, a transfer from Ohio (yes that Ohio), plays for Bobcats.  He has had a very good year and was a regular contributor for Buckeyes as a freshman.

The real Ohio is now going to be referred to as "THE Ohio University".  The school in Columbus is still "Ohio".  It's a further knock at the Buckeyes.

When it comes down to it, I don't mind Michigan dropping to a 4 seed.  I would actually rather play UNC than Kansas in the S16.  I just personally think UNC is more beatable for us.

But lets not get ahead of ourselves, only think about THE Ohio University.
