Ohio State looks like a dangerous team, and while they are third in terms of odds, they definitely have the potential to win it all.
The Buckeyes are led inside by Jared Sullinger, who is a man among boys, and it is next to impossible to stop him from recording a double-double. Sullinger is an incredible player, but he is also being helped inside by DeShaun Thomas, who is averaging 22.3 points per game. Thomas is playing the best basketball of his career, and he is peaking at the right time.
Ohio State's X-factor is William Buford, who is also playing excellent basketball. He is playing up to his potential, which is great news because he makes this team multi-dimensional. He struggled against No. 6 Cincinnati, but there are very few players left in the Final Four who can stop him.
Lastly, point guard Aaron Craft is playing well. While he isn't one to light up a stat sheet, he played possibly the game of his life against No. 8 Kansas State, and has continued that trend. Craft is also a shut-down defender, which will help to beat elite teams, including Kansas' Tyshawn Taylor in the team's next game.
While Ohio State is easily one of the best in the country, they are not the best, as that honor belongs to this next team.
