The two best defensive teams left in the tourney. Gtown #1, OSU #2 in terms of ppg allowed and opponents FG%. Expect a low scoring game...an oldschool Knicks vs Heat matchup.

And they arent better than Gtown or OSU on D. Thanks anyway tho...if it makes you feel good? The final 4 have 4 really good defensive teams. Including UCLA. Carry on.

As far as their defense in general (half court, full court, transition, etc.), i'd rank them as such:

1. UCLA
2. Georgetown
3. Florida
4. Ohio St.

But, when Florida is firing on all cylinders no team can find a way to get to the rim through Brewer, Noah and Horford.

UCLA is the best defensive team.

Carry on.

I don't think it really matters. Each team is good at defense and when you get to the part where you are locking team down, distiniguishing each time by incredibly small margins is moot.

I'm picking Gtown for this game. I have them going to the championship in my bracket, so I'm not changing my pick. I think this is the game where OSU's youthfulness finally does them in.

The Hibbert vs Oden matchup will be fun to watch. Should be a great game.

Oden vs Hibbert a great matchup

GOBB 03-27-2007 12:49 PM

Re: G'town vs. Ohio St. Gamethread.
 
Hibbert could help his draft stock by how he performs vs Oden.

Same with Jeff Green. But Roy moreso. Could be the reason he either comes out or stays.

it will be a good and tight game.
