Experts: Final Four picks, sleepers
Insider's analysts offer up their predictions and sleeper candidates
The hours are dwindling until Tournament Challenge locks the brackets, so we asked ESPN's college basketball experts to cut to the chase and supply their rationale for their Final Four picks, and provide a sleeper team they think can sneak into the Big Easy.
East: Ohio State Buckeyes
This entry was labeled "Syracuse Orange" before the school announced Fab Melo would miss the tournament with an "eligibility issue." But now things are wide open and I think the Buckeyes will take advantage. OSU just missed out on the Final Four a year ago and I think the Buckeyes will get it done this time.
