With Ohio State's National Invitational Tournament championship, does that mean the Buckeyes are unquestionably the 66th best team in the nation?
All kidding aside, the Buckeyes did do a good job of rebounding to win the title after not making the NCAA Tournament. In all fairness, OSU could have gotten in the NCAA tournaemnt with wins over Iowa, Michigan and especially Michigan State in the Big Ten tournament.
The Buckeyes will miss Jamar Butler, Othello Harrington and Matt Terwilliger, but this is team that could challenge for the conference crown next season with what's coming back (I'm including Kosta Koufos, although that might not be the case).
From what I hear, incoming freshman guard William Buford and post player BJ Mullens are legit. The Buckeyes definitely need to upgrade their inside game.
By the way, are you mine and is your bracket messed up?
I had UCLA beating Kansas in the title game. One may still happen. I like Memphis tonight to in. I thought they would go out earlier, but they've proven me wrong.
What are your thoughts?
