The teams were dead even at 33 at the half and the Greyhounds actually pulled to a lead late in half. Then Daequan Cook, who had been struggling with his shot all day, stepped up and drove the lane for a bucket and was fouled. Spiece went up by 3. On the next possession, Eric Gordon's 3-pointer basically extinguished the Greyhounds hopes.
A very physical game was punctuated with Oden's fierce dunks inside. The Greyhounds ran a host of bodies at Oden and their top 3 post players combined for 15 fouls. Still, the nation's top prospect dunked what he could, took his medicine and went to the line. After struggling at the stripe for a good portion of the tournament, Oden made his last two throws when they counted.
Bill Walker had some amazing drives and actually challenged Oden on a few occasions, he would finish with 16. O.J. Mayo had been struggling with his jumpshot during most of the event but he shot 46% from the field in the title game, including 4-for-11 from downtown.
