Wichita St.-Ohio St. Preview

During Ohio State's journey to the Final Four last season, Aaron Craft learned the importance of focusing on the next 40 minutes, not the three-week trip. So Craft didn't realize the highest seeds in the West Regional were dropping like dominoes until earlier this week. He purposely didn't learn much about ninth-seeded Wichita State until Thursday night, when the powerful...
HOW ANNOYING

Aaron Craft asked about being annoying

Aaron Craft has a lot of the characteristics that former Duke guards J.J. Redick, Jon Scheyer, Greg Paulus, Steve Wojciechowski and Chris Collins exhibited.  He’s a scrappy white guard who isn’t the biggest, strongest, fastest or most talented player, but he does what it takes to will his team to win.  Some appreciate them.  Others find them incredibly annoying. ESPN’s Rick...

Ohio St faces Wichita St for trip to Final Four

Aaron Craft and Deshaun Thomas paid attention last weekend when the highest-seeded teams in their regional started toppling like so many dominoes.

Ohio State Makes another Game Winning Shot

Last Sunday Aaron Craft hit a game winning three point shot to give the Buckeyes the win. This time it was LaQuinton Ross’s turn.

If Ohio State doesn’t make the Final Four, they’ve underachieved

  I still can’t belive what I saw at the end of Ohio States’ game against Iowa State. You could have told me that Aaron Craft would step up at the end of the game to make a big shot. However if you told me that shot would be a 3 pointer after he had waived off the leading scorer in the Big Ten (Deshaun Thomas). I woukd have said, “My boy Aaron Craft must have been feeling...

Here's video of Rick Reilly annoying Aaron Craft

You've seen the narrative develop during this year's tournament, haven't you?   Aaron Craft is annoying. Why is he annoying?  Why is he hated as this generation's Christian Laettner?  Is it because he's a defensively oriented player and the fact that he supposedly gets away with calls?  Because he's just so darn "scrappy" and loved by...

Rick Reilly Curious If Aaron Craft Considers Himself “Annoying”

The demise of ESPN’s Rick Reilly has been well documented. There is the infamous “I had it first on Twitter” incident, the inordinate amount of time defending Lance Armstrong, and the trite. Now Reilly is curious whether 22-year-old Ohio State gaurd Aaron Craft thinks other people see him as “annoying.” During a recent press conference he asked Craft, ”Can you see how...

Johnson key to Arizona's defensive effort

LOS ANGELES Aaron Craft was joking about a tweet referencing him the other day from a former Ohio State teammate. It was a riff on the popular Chuck Norris tough-guy theme. I believe it said I would kick Chuck Norris butt, Craft said. Then he would shave his head to look more like me. Norris will not coverBuckeyes junior guard Craft in the NCAA West regional game Thursday. Nick...

Video: LaQuinton Ross Hits Deep Three With 2 Seconds Left To Advance Ohio State To Elite 8

So apparently Ohio State has a flair for the dramatic. In its third-round matchup against Iowa State, Aaron Craft hit a three-pointer at the buzzer to put away the Cyclones. Tonight in the Sweet 16, Craft was playing the role of distributor — on the Buckeyes’ last possession, he dished the ball to LaQuinton Ross, who was way behind the three-point arc — but that didn’t stop...

Saturday’s Elite Eight Predictions

The Sweet Sixteen was awesome. Another great two days of college basketball. We saw Trey Burke lead Michigan to an unbelievable comeback win against Kansas. We saw Aaron Craft and Ohio State on the brink of elimination again, but nonetheless prevail, and we even saw Syracuse’s zone stifle arguably the most potent offense in college basketball.

Elite Eight!

  HOLY HELL, that game last night was insane! LaQuinton Ross was a BOSS last night hitting that game winner, I jumped out of my chair and spilled Oberon on myself because of it and I wasn’t mad about it at all. Although, that first half was one that I was not happy with the way the boys played or the officiating. But the second half the team that we know and love showed up, with...
