No. 2 Buckeyes outlast the Fab-less No. 1 Orange for a trip to the Final Four
When I began to fill out my bracket, I was like "that team can't beat Ohio State, that team can't either, Nah that team won't beat the Buckeyes..." and then I saw Syracuse... But things quickly changed once Syracuse lost Fab Melo for the tournament. This fabulous opportunity that awaited them in March was Fab-less, and the Buckeyes made them pay for it. Jared Sullinger was going to have a big game, there was no doubt about that, but Scoop Jardine was also gonna have a big gmae. Once Sullinger sat out for most of the first half due to foul trouble, things looked bad for Thad Matta's group. But that didn't Matta. They hung in there and once Sullinger came in for the second half, he dominated the glass for 14 second half points which led to a Buckeye run that iced the game, 77-70.
