They turned it up AGAIN!

I've blogged about this numerous times, and the Buckeyes just keep on doing it....when there is less than 10 minutes to play in the game, Ohio State turns up the heat and takes over the game.

Tonight, the game was tied at 44-44 with 9 and a half minutes left in the game. A 10-2 run came next, and the Buckeyes outscored the Hoyas over that final handful of minutes by a score of 23-16. This has been the case in more games than I can recall. If you're going to beat the Buckeyes, you cannot be in a close game with them when the clock gets under 10 minutes to play. Nuff said.

But you really want to know how strong this team is? Check this out....

- Greg Oden sat for 20 of the game's 40 minutes.
- Ron Lewis shot 13 percent from the floor.
- They shot under 45% for the game
- They shot under 70% from the FT line

....and they still beat the 8th-ranked team in the NCAA. THAT, my beloved readers, is strength. To play a powerful team and not play well, yet still win comfortably, is a sign of a championship-quality team.

Now, bring on the Fucking Gators!
