Thanks... that's why I'm a journalism major.
Wheeler had to appeal to the Georgia high school sports governing body to appear in the tournament, so the rules are strict there, but they made a fair ruling on their behalf. If only the OHSAA would bend the rules a bit.
I like Ohio State's chances of winning a matchup with MSU – OSU almost beat them in East Lansing – and Maryland – OSU won in Cbus – more than Iowa running through Purdue and, especially, Wisconsin. Bad draw. Buckeyes have a better chance of reaching Sunday, imo. Ipso facto, better chance at winning the tournament.
Plus, I'm not directly comparing OSU vs Iowa and it's only one spot in a somewhat arbitrary ranking system. Homerism at its worst would be putting OSU at 1 and every other team tied with Rutgers for 14th.
Top targets are Tyus Battle and Kobi Simmons. Scouted/received unoffical visits from Cassius Winston, Quentin Goodin and Daquan Bracey. Battle and Simmons can play off ball, like Shannon & D'Angelo do, just in case they view AJ Harris as a deterrent.
