Ohio rolls five guards deep, and all five play vital roles.
There's the starting backcourt of D.J. Cooper and Walter Offutt, plus the sweet stroke of sophomore shooting guard Nick Kellogg, who's shooting 47 percent behind the arc, Clark Kellogg's son has become one of the more feared sharpshooters in the nation.
And that's not counting freshman point guard Stevie Taylor, who will be a big reason why the Bobcats make a legitimate run in the NCAA Tournament.
Cooper is arguably the best point guard in the Mid-American Conference, but when Cooper and Taylor are in the game at the same time, Taylor is the one running the point.
Sliding the team's best player to shooting guard to allow a true freshman to run the offense speaks to the potential of Taylor. Furthermore, the switch allows Cooper to stay fresh in crunch time, which will be pivotal late in the season.
Last, Ricardo Johnson is the blue-collar guard doing all the dirty work
Pound for pound, he is the team's best rebounder. He often wins the daily rebounding competition in practices. He sets the tone defensively and provides a spark off the bench. Johnson might not hit the big shot to win a game, but he'll do all the little things that turn close games into victories.
