Ohio State pulled an upset in the first round, continuing a season that has been full of surprises for a pretty limited team.
Houston rolled over its first round opponent looking more like a #1 seed than a #3.
Ohio State Buckeyes
The Buckeyes won a slugfest against Iowa State to kick off their tournament. They are not pretty to watch but well coached.
Kaleb Wesson is able to dominate inside with his big body. He had 21 points and 12 rebounds and will have success against a Houston team without much size.
The Cougars are very guard oriented though so the Buckeyes perimeter players are going to have to have strong defensive games.
Transfer Keyshawn Woods played all forty minutes and will probably have to do so again. If he can get another 19 points they might have a chance to advance.
Houston won their first round game by 29 points showing that their regular season dominance was no fluke. They are looking to go further than last season.
The win over the Panthers played to form with suffocating defense and their top player leading the way offensively.
That would be Corey Davis Jr who had a game high 26 players. A strong shooter what I like best about his game is that he does more than just bomb from the outside.
Also a good sign is that the Cougars got production from their inside players. Fabian White Jr. had 14 and 13 and Brealon Brady had 13 and 8. When they play well this team can be unstoppable.

Free Ohio State Buckeyes vs. Houston Cougars NCAAB Prediction:
The Cougars should be significant favourites in this one, I would predict something like -8.
That is a number they can easily cover with their strong D and ability to close out games.
