Go to a zone and help out on the glass.

Sullinger is such a beast, I know he's like 99% one and done, but man it's gonna be fun to watch him.

Aaron Craft has been great with the ball all night, rare to see that from a freshman. No big mistakes, solid passing. And yeah as ST said, Buford is nice player too.

Damn Sullinger is a freakin monster.

Buckeyes got schooled on the glass in the first half...better now. Defense starting to turn the tide for OSU. Up 6.

Honestly, if it wasn't for some of those crazy shots UF was getting to go down and the offensive rebound issues, OSU could be up 15+.

Macklin and some of those other Gator big guys are tough though...nice touch around the hoop

I love how Craft has just destroyed the Florida press tonight...almost single-handedly.

Tyus just got postered!

Donovan loves his press, no matter how many wide open dunks Sullinger gets.

Thad Matta made some terrific adjustments at half. This is turning out to be a statement game for Ohio State.

Might be the quietest 24 point game for Lighty.

The offense looks like mid-season form. Wow.

Hey Dan, do you happen to know how highly recruited Craft was?

Top 10-20 point guard nationally if I recall. Looks like a steal so far.

I just checked...Scout had him #19.

Just got back from the game and had a great time. I haven't had a chance to go back through the thread yet, but I'm anxious to see how the game was viewed on tv. UF played about as well as they could have in the 1st half, rebounding and Boynton seemed to be the keys from where I sat.

I leaned over to my daughter at halftime and told her the Gators couldn't play any better than they did in the 1st half, and they were only up by 3.

2nd half came and the Buckeyes abused UF's press the entire 2nd half. The crowd was all over Billy, begging him to call off the press....it was great.

Just have to say that Sully is going to get a lot if not all of the headlines for the freshman class, but I was so impressed with the way Craft handled himself out there all night. What a steal he's turning out to be.

One more quick thing to mention. We were sitting about 5 rows behind the parents section and I noticed JJ Sullinger sitting down there. He was shouting out instructions and plays to his brother all night long. Was really cool to see.

Anyway, great great evening, and it was my 12 year old daughters 1st Buckeye game and she loved it. She said she's going to school tomorrow to let all of her Gator friends know how the game turned out. I'm definitely a proud father. Go Bucks!

Sullinger and Craft completely change what this team is capable of.

Sullinger gives us a guy who can score any time you need him to with his back to the basket, which allows us to stay out of those 10-0 runs against us. You could see Florida's will breaking with each inside basket he got in the 2nd half. He killed them. Plus, he gives our shooters wide open looks, because teams have to start doubling him down low. Watch this offense take off as these guys get more used to playing with each other.

Craft gives us someone we can count on to break the press. He's not flashy, he's not gonna put up 30 points, but he will play smart and get the job done.

The one thing that concerned me about tonight's game was the defense. Even though they forced a lot of turnovers, they did give up too many baskets in the paint. That won't get it done come tournament time. Admittedly though, if Florida's not hitting ridiculous shots from outside in the first half, the game isn't close.

LOVE this OSU team this year.

Gonna have a little trouble against a Wisconsin or long-type team like a Duke but they aren't gonna see too many frontcourts like UF and they handled them really well.

Versatile as all get up and can flat out shoot it. Agree on Craft and Sully, definite x-factors to our team's potential. Hate to get to much ahead of myself but saw exactly what I needed to see for a team on the road in a hostile environment. Very nice win.
Playing here is the closest thing to heaven. Really, I mean it's amazing to be in a place where the fans truly cherish their football team and stick behind them win or lose. We players love them, too. I feel a sense of accomplishment playing here, we are a special breed of football players with a great opportunity." ~ tOSU LB Brian Rolle
