Buckeye Hoops

I think Thad's Buckeye hoops team is fun to watch and highly overlooked in the national spectrum. They have the ingredients of a dangerous team come March. They are a well balanced scoring team. They are athletic. They have more than one guy that can hurt you from 3 point range, and they have a strong big man in Dials. This Buckeye squad can make some serious noise in the Big Dance.


Any thoughts?

The Bucks are my life unfortunately, once you get past Dials it all relies on outside shooting. They have really been unable to break down defenses with dribble penetration, hell, most of their offense is generated off of skip passes.

I think this will carry them for a while, but in the end shooting teams tend to be unreliable and unfortunately they do not seem to stay torrid for weeks on end (the duration of the NCAA). I think ultimately the Bucks thrash a #13 seed in the first round (as a 4 seed) and win their next game with good shooting. Unfortunately I don't think that will be enough to beat a #1 or #2 seed and get into the elite 8.
