    Babb vs Buckeyes

    Who is he assigned to tomorrow? Thomas?

    In the small chance Babb actually reads this board, I will take the liberty of posting some images to inspire him for tomorrow's game.

    Re: Babb vs Buckeyes

    I would bet that he switches around a bit.

    Re: Babb vs Buckeyes

    I think the better question is who brings the ball up the floor? Korie has been playing well, but he is pretty loose with the ball, always trying to crossover. Craft is bigger and stronger, I think this is a nightmare matchup. I'll bet we see a lot of Will bringing it up.

    Korie can be pretty damn good when he's focused, and I imagine he will be for this match up.

    Lucious will bring it up. If he struggles Clyburn will. Palo will also see it some, so the usual.

    I don't think he struggles though. The team is focused, and know its possible they can win the whole thing.

    I agree. For some reason I'm not worried about KL.

    Re: Babb vs Buckeyes

    If Babb can do to Thomas what he did to McLemore, Pledger, MacGruder, ect, I think we're in decent shape to at least be close in the end.

    Re: Babb vs Buckeyes

    Babb will shut down whomever has the hot hand - may get moved around a bit I think.

    Korie will do fine on the big stage - he was great against ND and has been here before. We'll see some sets of Clyburn/Palo maybe even Niang (ala Royce last year) running point. Naz Long and Palo take over in the last 4 minutes because we're already gonna be up by 20.

    Hey, I can dream, and tOSU has to lose sometime - we all know how hard it is to keep a streak alive!

    Re: Babb vs Buckeyes

    OSU definitely is not unbeatable. They're a very tough out, but so are we.

    Re: Babb vs Buckeyes

    Statistically speaking, Ohio State just does not have overwhelming firepower.

    Of course, scoring wise, it all starts with Craft, who is a tough adequate scorer, especially when OSU's offense is clicking. He is a solid passer and decision maker, but not necessarily an overwhelming play-maker. Buckeye scoring all starts and ends with Deshaun Thomas. But the Buckeye's offensive potency actually depends a lot on sophomore Sam Thompson getting going along with Thomas, who is going to get his because he puts up a lot of shots.

    Sam Thompson is the wildcard. He is hot right now and playing with confidence. Also, his high shooting percentages for the season clearly stand out among the shooting percentages of the rest of the Buckeye players. Thompson has nice touch and at 6'7, his body, skill-set, and his game are somewhat comparable to Will Clyburn, but Thompson plays more of a "glue guy" role for the Buckeyes than Clyburn does for ISU. He shoots 40% from 3 point range and 51% from the field. In postseason play, Sam Thompson is averaging 13.8 ppg.

    Deshaun Thomas is a high volume scorer, and a very good one, especially lately. But Thomas doesn't shoot a particularly high overall percentage at 44%, although he does have an effective 3 point percentage at 34% considering how many 3-point attempts he puts up. Craft shoots a pedestrian 29% from 3 point range. Lenzelle Smith, Jr. is a great 3 point shooter at 37%, but his game inside the 3 point arc is more limited than his bigger body for a guard would suggest. Almost half of Lenzelle Smith, Jr's field goal attempts have been from beyond the arc, and he doesn't shoot a good overall FG% at 43% despite the high percentage he shoots from 3.

    Babb will start off on Thomas and it would be great to give him the McLemore/MacGruder treatment all night long. If we are unable to stop Thomas, than we will be in huge trouble. But Thompson adds efficiency to an offense that can get somewhat sloppy at times. Sometimes OSU settles for shots they can't knock down consistently, and Thompson has given that a calming presence as their number 2 scorer since postseason play has started. I know Fred and JT will have something ready for Thompson, and I'm anxious to get this thing underway. Overall, I think it's a great matchup for the Clones. Go (IA) State!

    I think Ejim will be on Thomas to start.
