All Aboard the D-Train

With Jared Sullinger having an off night going just 4/14 from the floor, Ohio State rode Deshaun Thomas and his career-high 31 points and 12 rebounds to a 78-59 victory over Loyola at the CONSOL Energy Center in Pittsburgh.

Thomas reached his personal-best for points with over five minutes left in the game, but with the Buckeyes up by 18, Matta emptied the bench shortly thereafter. Make no mistake, this tournament will be Thomas' national coming out party, so let's cherish what we have for this run because there's a more than decent chance that he'll be playing in the NBA next year.

Thad Matta's crew advances to play Gonzaga on Saturday around 2:45pm, but tonight, we party.
