Ohio State Buckeyes
You’ve got six teams in the Big Ten that feel like sure bets to make the NCAA Tournament and earn seeds that will earn a first round matchup against a double-digit seed: Michigan, Michigan State, Maryland, Purdue, Wisconsin, and Iowa.
Those are the six teams ahead of Ohio State in the standings. The Buckeyes are still in the field as of now but an uneven time in the Big Ten has the Buckeyes floundering around the 8, 9, even 10-line.
The Bucks lost a home game to Illinois earlier this week and already lost once to Michigan State, at home by nine, earlier this year.
One thing OSU does have going for it that it has stayed just about perfectly healthy this season, just two rotational guys having missed a couple games. Both are back now.
Michigan State Spartans
I love Michigan State’s team so much but I have a personal problem with taking teams in March that aren’t at full strength and I just can’t get over the Joshua Langford injury.
Still, the Spartans keep winning. They won at the Kohl Center earlier this week behind 23 points from Cassius Winston and a defensive performance that held the Badgers under 60.
Aaron Henry and Xavier Tillman are the two guys primarily responsible for replacing Langford. Neither guy is a three-point shooter like Langford is and neither is an upperclassman, lockdown defender but both guys are improving with increased playing time.
Henry went 4-for-6 with eight points, five rebounds, two assists, two steals and a block against Wisconsin. Tillman had seven rebounds, two steals, and two blocks in 21 minutes against the Badgers.
