Final Four!

For the tenth time in school history, the Ohio State Men's Basketball team is heading to the Final Four. On Saturday the #1 seed Buckeyes took on the #2 seed Memphis Tigers in the South Regional Final of the NCAA Tournament. It was a hard fought game and was close until the final minutes, when OSU went on a run of hitting 16 straight free throws to put away UM, 92-76. Senior Ron Lewis again was outstanding, scoring 22 points including 2 threes and 10 free throws as well as 6 rebounds. Mike Conley tossed in 19 points and Oden scored 17 of his own and grabbed 9 boards and blocked a shot. Butler stepped it up and scored 12 including a couple of threes and Lighty and Cook played a big role coming off the bench scoring 7 and 9 points respectively. This win places the Buckeyes in the Final Four in Atlanta where they will play either UNC or Georgetown for a chance to play in the national championship game. OSU is now 34-3 on the year.
This is truly an awesome thing for me...because the last time the Bucks were in the Final Four I was in the 5th grade and I really don't remember it that well.
