2007 NCAA Tournamenet: All Elite-Eight Team

March 26th, 2007
Georgetown

Best Performance: Greg Oden, Ohio State

One can only imagine Coach John Calipari’s reaction.

Trying to get ready for his Elite Eight showdown with the #1 team in the country, a team on a 20 game winning streak, he opens up the newspaper or turns on the TV and discovers what his star forward Joey Dorsey had been saying about his match-up with Greg Oden:

"I'm an underrated big man and he's a lot overrated as a big man."

"I'm going to have a 20-rebound night.."

"I'm Goliath… he's the little man."

2007 NCAA Tournament: All-Second Round Team

March 19th, 2007
Ohio St

Best Performance: Ron Lewis, Ohio State

In the best game of the Tournament so far, there were plenty of great performances to choose from, particularly from two Buckeyes who willed their team to an improbable victory. Neither of them was named Greg Oden.

Not that Oden, who ended up with his umpteenth double-double, had an off night. But after fouling out with his team down nine and less than three minutes to play, it was up to Oden’s teammates to step it up and save their season. You probably know the rest.
