Allen Fieldhouse is one of the most difficult places to play in all of college basketball. Saturday afternoon, the Ohio State Buckeyes will put their No. 2 ranking on the line when they head to Allen Fieldhouse to play the Kansas Jayhawks. Until a January loss to Texas the Jayhawks had won 69 straight on its home floor. SB Nation's Rock Chalk Talk has a look at this marquee game:
For me, the most concerning issue is lack of inside depth if Sullinger gets in foul trouble against an opponent with a big frontline come March. Evan Ravenel, a thick 6’8" transfer from Boston College has played beyond the expectations of many and Deshaun Thomas, at an athletically lean 6’7" can certainly get hot and score from inside and out but those two are it when it comes to the 4 and 5 spots. Amir Williams is a McDonald’s All-American and can alter a few shots but the 6’11" freshman is a year away from having any type of impact and clearly looks to be a project offensively.
Here is a list of the other big games this weekend involving Cleveland area teams:
Ohio State at Kansas – 3:15 P.M.
Akron at Cleveland State – 2:00 P.M.
Kent State at Western Carolina – 2:00 P.M.
