Bracket projection: Ohio State
Sullinger has Buckeyes primed for a deep tournament run
The Buckeyes are a bit of a mystery entering NCAA play. They can be great, but we rarely see it. And they could have the top player on the floor in Jared Sullinger, but we rarely see that. I like Ohio State's draw and chance to get hot for a few rounds, but see an all-Big Ten regional final against Wisconsin and an unfulfilling end to OSU's season.
