What’s At Stake?

Everything.  Win or go home has been the motto since the Big Dance tipped off.  But the stakes are even higher now that the loser watches the winner play in the national championship.

 

What They’re Saying

Anup Patel tweeted why so many are rooting for Thomas Robinson to succeed, saying:

 

 

The Columbus Dispatch’s Bob Baptist noted that in the Buckeyes’ loss to Kansas earlier this season, Jared Sullinger didn’t play. Baptist tweeted:

 

 

Most Important Player to Watch

Tyshawn Taylor.

He is the third-most productive player in this game and that’s why he’s the X-factor. His success or failure to match his average of 16.6 points and 4.7 assists a game will swing the game’s outcome either way.

Everyone will be talking about the showdown down low, but Taylor possesses the ability to take over on the perimeter.

But on that note…

 

Key Matchup

Thomas Robinson vs. Jared Sullinger will be an epic matchup. 

This is must-watch television, folks. Two future NBA stars go head-to-head in the biggest game of each player’s basketball career. Robinson averages 17.7 points and 11.9 rebounds a game while Sullinger averages 17.6 and 9.1.

Whichever big wins this matchup will likely lead his team to victory.

 

Prediction

Robinson is the best player in the nation, so he’ll win that matchup. His performance will give the Jayhawks the edge in a thriller over the Buckeyes. 

Kansas 75-74
