These Buckeyes Bring Ups and Downs

Following this Ohio State basketball team has not been for the faint of heart. The Buckeyes started hot, hit a surprising rough patch but rebounded in time to win the Big Ten. Now they are halfway to a Final Four berth.

With three stalwart sophomores and a star-studded incoming freshman class, Ohio State was a trendy preseason pick to do major damage in the NCAA Tournament.

Jared Sullinger, Aaron Craft and Deshaun Thomas – not to mention those youngsters just joining the college ranks – found out why they play the games on the court and not on paper, though, and endured a long regular season full of ups and downs.

Now they are halfway through a postseason run they hope will take them to New Orleans for the Final Four, and though they are trending upward, they still have that ability to make hearts skip a few beats every game.

We examine The Agony and the Ecstasy of following the Ohio State basketball team so far and what might lie ahead in the Elite Eight in the newest post in the Cus Words Blog.
