Has anyone ever tried playing zone against Syracuse? They obviously practice against it all-day, but I question how well they could actually break it down and shoot from the outside...then the other team could just watch how they break it and do the same thing if they need to...

The UC Bearcats did it earlier in the season. It was an ugly game where Syracuse struggled. They pretty much trialed all game and came back and won it at the end.

Another chapter in the overrated story of Bill Self

It's really a personal preference though, I was kind of expressing my own opinion. Self is a very good coach and either he doesn't believe in fouling when up 3 or there was miscommunication/poor execution.

Self is a great recruiter, and a very good coach. I don't know if I'd call him great though. Overrated? Nah. No one is claiming he's coach K, or Pitino.

Well, Ohio State is my only Final Four pick left. My bracket could officially die tonight.

Not sure I could handle losing to a team called the Shockers. All these jumpers, none of them falling.

When Ohio State decides to wake up, they should grab control fast.

Wow, not sure Ohio State can play much worse. If they lose, it will be their own undoing.
