    Haha GS won't be too happy about this game. Big 12 Player of the Year didn't even show up.
    Just wanna let you know Georgetown is not in the Big 12, anyways Green had the worst game of the year and really disappointed, he was horrible today and didn't do anything that he usually does, on the otherhand Hibbert vs. Oden I guess was a stalemate but Oden showed why he isn't this God Like prospect against a bigger man he was ineffective, he has lots of work to do.

      I'd disagree. They could play how they did right now and beat UCLA. Florida... definitely not. But if Florida makes it on to National Championship, the only thing that could stop them from a repeat would be for Ohio State to get hot from beyond the arc for the majority of the game.

        Oden does have alot of work to do, but know he knows how compares to other solid big man in the country

          And if he wants to do that work at OSU for another year I'd take it ;)

          But like toon said, defense in basketball isn't always as apparent of being good or bad IMO. If you can change shots, you can win without looking like an amazing defensive team.

            But you do have a very explosive offense. I'm not saying they're crappy on defense, they're undisciplined. Their ability to get turnovers overshadows the fact that they get beat off the dribble a lot, they lose man markers, they go under screens, and they're slow on rotation. Which GT exploited early in the 2nd half.

            If Thompson would've actually kept running the Princeton they had the Buckeyes on the ropes. I can't count how many times you guys got beat back door, probably 3 or 4 times and yet Thompson didn't keep up with it. He decided to try and play a post offense, which IMO was a huuuuugggeeee mistake. They had the guards and the frontline to push this game to a faster pace and to run a much better offense, yet they didn't.

            This game was not played well at all IMO. If OSU wants to win on Monday, they'll need to play much better IMO. Very disappointed with how boring this game was to watch.

            • Well, that was disappointing. Ohio State definitely looked like the quicker and more athletic team.

              • I think Jonathan Wallace with 2 more years can develop into a solid pro prospect, with Hibbert and Green gone next year I have seen the kid shoot he has JJ Redick type ability, next year size will be the problem with the front court will be a problem with Center being Pat Ewing, PF Macklin, and SF Summers. Guards will be stacked as hell, Wallace, Sapp, Rivers, Austin Freeman, Chris Wright.

                  Georgetown will have the deepest backcourt in the country!!!!

                    I think most of his work has to do with conditioning. True, he didn't get any big blocks against Hibbert, but that was mostly due to great positioning of Hibbert as a result of that offense. Outside of that, Oden was getting rebounds over him and doing stuff against him on the offensive side. But Oden is more hybrid than the dominant, big-bodied low post presence people for some reason thought he'd be. Of course, it'd be a waste of his athleticism to be that anyway.

                    If Florida does in fact advance, it'll be interesting to see if Oden can do anything against Horford and Noah.

                      • IMO if Oden would've been able to stay on the floor (he got some cheap fouls), he would've done very good. He didn't get a chance to get into the flow of the game yet he still played very well IMO. Especially on the low block.

                          Not being on the floor was due to his inexperienced and unnecessary fouls so it is his fault he couldn't get in a rythm

                            That moving screen was a BS call. Which would have kept him on the floor. And I've already stated my opinion on his offensive foul.

                              Both were legitimate calls!!!!!

                              • I don't like Billy Packer, but I did agree with his comment late in the game basically about how these two kids (Oden moreso than Hibbert obviously) have been too overhyped. Still a lot of work to do for both of them. Oden gets by really on his size right now, and that works for the collegiate game. At the next level, he'll have to learn to position himself better, develop a more consistently varied offensive game, and be a more consistent defensive player.

                                I've seen a lot of people (not here, but in general) bash Hibbert, saying that he does well because of his size in the collegiate game. I think Hibbert is actually fairly well-developed and would be more ready to adjust to the pro game than Oden as of now. But both guys need to play smarter. Hibbert has good athleticism for his size, but needs to learn to move around smarter.

                                I'm not sure Hibbert and Green are certainties to leave. Both would probably be mid-firsts, with the chance of going top 10. But wait a year and both, if they continue to get better, could become top 5 picks. Of course, guaranteed money is guaraneteed money, and it'll be tough to pass up. They both are better off sticking around, though.
