These teams played in December as Kansas won, 78-67, going over the 137. However, Ohio State did not have star forward Jared Sullinger who was out due to a back injury. The Buckeyes are playing the best basketball outside of Kentucky, while Kansas did have a break when they played North Carolina without Kendall Marshall. Yet the Jayhawks put up 80 points on a North Carolina team with a dominant frontcourt. Deshaun Thomas has been taking pressure off of Sullinger with his three-point shooting, while Tyshawn Taylor is a big-game type of player. Kansas wants to run all day while Ohio State has the athletes to run and will try and play halfcourt. Sullinger and Thomas Robinson will look to put up big numbers in this game to show NBA scouts who the better power forward is.
