@Iowa, @Wisc only really quality wins. OOC schedule was absolute joke. They lose the next two @IU vs Sparty .500 in conference play. The blind resume comparison would have several teams that won't get in with more impressive resumes. Only a lock because of reputation. I can't wait to pencil them in for first round 'upset'

So this gets back to a thread of posts in Brian's post from earlier today about taking long shots instead of going to the basket. Ohio players had a nice path to the basket and likely would've been fouled but they chose the 20 footer instead for the Win; worked out well.

You know, the stat of the evening in the Ohio State / Penn State game has to be some rather ridiculous free throw rates for both teams. Ohio State's free throw rate was 57.45% and they went 18-27 from the stripe, and you can compare that to the even more ridiculous free throw rate of Penn State - 65.12% - and 22-28 from the line. In the end, most other major stats being fairly close, that was the difference.

Keiko Haydar...I feel like that guy went off against us two years ago.

Edit* Scratch that it was last year.  4-4 from 3 land, 13 total points.  We beat them handidly but he wouldn't miss.
