Funny how one game can change everything. After a season fraught with growing pains and some disappointment, the Buckeyes extended their season by knocking off the talented seventh seeded VCU Rams in OT. Now, they draw a formidable foe, the second seeded Arizona Wildcats. A win here would vault the Buckeyes into the Sweet 16 once again, and completely change how Ohio State fans view not just this team, but the future of the program. Plus, it would give us fans more time to watch D'Angelo Russell in an Ohio State jersey.
Russell was electric against VCU, and the Buckeyes will need another outstanding game from him if they hope to knock off the Wildcats, who pose significant matchup problems all over the court with their size and athleticism, paced by fellow freshman standout Stanley Johnson.
Can Thad Matta extend his mastery of his friend and pupil, Sean Miller? Can Amir Williams build off his strong performance against VCU? Is this the last time we're going to see Russell play for Ohio State? Can Ohio State's maligned seniors change their legacy? Join us here in the GameThread, and let's find out together.
