What a great way to finish Craft's career......being more of a defensive guy the defense Craft displayed the last minute of the game was just unbelievable. Obviously offense is important in today's college game and I won't deny the fact that the jump shot is something that I would have loved Craft to have but his on ball defense, heart, and intensity makes up for his sometimes lack of offense. The drive and heart was displayed by the dive for the rebound. The smarts was displayed by not calling the timeout (which would have been OHIO STATE's last and left them the inability to call one on the inbounds if needed) and taking the jump ball.
Craft's defense on Valentine and Harris at the end of the game was admirable. Not only did he prevent a good shot but he did it WITHOUT fouling which would have put them at the line and gave them the chance to tie the game. I don't care what anyone says he is going to be missed.
Lenzelle also made some big shots and it was good to see Q really use his versatility to his advantage. He made some big shots down low and the 3 over Payne was huge.
P.S. Glad to hopefully not ever play against Payne again.......Guy is a beast offensively. I can't recall seeing much more of a versatile player in the BIG10 outside of Evan Turner.
