Tonight's session is sold out. Those coming over beware, told the troopers are out in full force on I-70 in Ohio. Not sure about Indiana.
One more question:
How much is Matta going to wear down the starters in this meaningless tournament?
If Matta doesn't put Craft on Byrd from the start I'm going to flip.
Michigan State downed Iowa 92-75 behind 21 points, 10 rebs and 5 assists from Draymond Green
Wisconsin beat (host) Indiana 79-71 behind 30 points from Ryan Wilson, who came in averaging 3.1 ppg, hehad to step up with Jordan Taylor in foul trouble.
MSU (25-7) will meet Wisconsin (24-8) in the 1:40 semi.
OSU-Purdue winner will play Michigan-Minnesota winner at 4 p.m. Both those games on CBS.
OSU is 5-2 in games starting at 9 p.m. or later this year.
Wins: Wright State, Jackson State, Duke (9:30), Purdue, at Minnesota
Losses: at Illinois, at Michigan
The Buckeyes are trying to get to the semis for the ninth time in the 15-year history of the tournament.
This is just the second time OSU has been the three seed. It also happened in 2001, when OSU lost to sixth-seeded Iowa 75-66 in Chicago.
Tonight's officials: Terry Wymer, Gene Steratore, Bill Ek
Keep it rolling Buford!
