Shots From The Schott: View From The “Q”

Written March 22nd, 2011 by Joe

After coming across tickets at the last minute, Joe was able to make the trip north and gives us the inside scoop from the game…

Important milestone, and beginning of an amazing day!

  • Want to start off with congratulating the 4 buckeyes receiving their diplomas-  David, Dallas, Jon, and Nikola.
  • Lighty with the 7 threes! Everytime he hit one, the place exploded. Wonder of Diebler was worried for his record?
  • You think Craft’s 15 assists were better than DLights 7 3′s? Arguable, if you ask me…
  • Sullinger, Buford, Diebler all with solid games to compliment Lighty’s night.
  • The substitution pattern?  I liked it, but was something that we hadn’t seen all year.  Didn’t quite match Marquette substitution pattern in game two.  I felt like I was watching a hockey game with all the line changes.
  • How about that 50-15 run after being down 11-2?

Mike Morrison was flying high against Villanova

On Sunday the Buckeyes will continue their 2011 NCAA Tournament journey when they take on the George Mason Patriots, who prevailed in their first round game against Villanova on Friday.  George Mason’s victory was one of the numerous thrilling finishes from this year’s tournament thus far, as the Patriots came back from being down six in the final two minutes to claim the win.  A three-pointer from sophomore Luke Hancock with 21 seconds remaining gave George Mason the lead over Villanova, and they were able to hold on for the final few ticks to advance in the bracket.

George Mason is most well known for its epic run to the Final Four in the 2006 Tournament, where they lost to eventual champion Florida in the semifinal game.  The Patriots have been back to the tourney since then, but have failed to advance beyond the first round until this year.  Jim Larranaga, the coach of that Final Four team, is still at the helm for George Mason and is happy to facilitate hopes of another run through the Big Dance.  Ohio State should beware, as this team is focused on making their own story and not just making an appearance for the sake of saying they participated.
