Lexington: First-Round Knockout?

By - March 15, 2007

You hate to call this thing so early out of respect for the Blue Devils -- a team which went 16-2 in NEC play during the regular season before rolling to a conference tournament title -- but Ohio State has looked razor-sharp in the early going.

Central Connecticut State trails 14-3 at the first media timeout just four minutes into the game and just twice have managed to push the ball within the three-point circle on offense. All but one offensive possession has resulted in a low-percentage shot from beyond the arc with the shot clock running down.

Meanwhile, Ohio State's offense is running like a top. Three-balls from Mike Conley, Jr., Jamar Butler and Ron Lewis (two) along with a Greg Oden dunk have helped the Buckeyes stake an early 11-point lead. Got a funny feeling that number is going to continue to grow.
