Buford is wild card in OSU's Final Four chances

It's hard to imagine that Ohio State has made it to the Final Four - and its most experienced player and best shooter hasn't been on top of his game. William Buford, the lone senior on the roster, has been criticized by many Buckeyes' fans for not lighting up the scoreboard in recent games. They look at the Big Ten and NCAA tournaments and see that he's shooting...

Buckeyes aware Gonzaga is underdog in name only

Ohio State senior guard William Buford grew up rooting for Gonzaga, citing the way the Bulldogs played and their ability to consistently deliver upsets against the big boys in March. Buford isn't as big a fan these days, in part because he doesn't think Gonzaga is an underdog anymore. The way Buford looks at it, any team that makes the NCAA tournament 14 straight years is...

Dissecting the Buckeyes' basketball team

COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Based on last year's success and the spotlight that came with it, there were certain things we knew about this year's Ohio State basketball team before the season even started. We knew that Jared Sullinger was pretty darn good. We knew that William Buford was going to get his shots and make his share, and that Buford also would be streaky. We knew that...

Buford holds the key to Ohio State's season

By Ari If William Buford is the difference between a Final Four run and an early exit in the NCAA Tournament for the Ohio State basketball team, its quite strange that the people closest to the senior have a hard time describing his game. Even Aaron Craft, viewed as the teams intellectual, cant seem to find the perfect way to sum up what Buford is or...

Big Buford: Buckeyes Top Boilers In A Fast-Paced Thriller

William Buford is one of the most maddening players that I’ve ever had on the teams that I closely follow. In some of the biggest games of his career, he has failed to rise to the occasion with some hideous shooting performances. Overshadowed by other guards and forwards throughout most of his career, the lone senior on the team is often unfairly the scapegoat for some of the Buckeyes’...

Buckeyes turn to Buford for leadership

The Buckeyes appear to be pretty good at self-analysis. They headed into Big Ten play ranked second in the nation and sporting a 12-1 record, but the consensus inside the locker room was that much work needed to be done. Besides his usual penchant for excessive worry, Ohio State coach Thad Matta finds legitimate fault in his team. The Buckeyes have been good, even great at times...

Buford leads Buckeyes past Wildcats

Northwestern coach Bill Carmody was in mid-thought when he suddenly said of Ohio State's William Buford, ''I don't know if you'd call it his team but, . . . he's a senior, right?'' Told that Buford was, indeed, the second-ranked Buckeyes' only senior, Carmody muttered, ''Thank God.'' Buford had career-highs of 28 points and five...
