San Antonio: State of Despair

By - March 22, 2007

Tennessee goes to the locker rooms with a 49-32 lead. Sure, the Volunteers have benefited from their blistering shooting performance during the first half -- connecting on 9-of-15 (60.0 percent) from beyond the arc and 19-of-34 (55.9 percent) overall -- but what is going on with Ohio State?

Just four days after the Buckeyes should have been scared straight in a second-round win over Xavier -- a victory which required a controversial non-call and an overtime period -- the South Region's top seed has appeared flatter than a month-old Pabst during the first 20 minutes of tonight's nightcap. I'm talking catatonic. With the way Tennessee has been shooting the rock and outplaying the favorites -- from the floor, on the boards and as far as taking care of the ball -- the Buckeyes don't have much margin for error if the Big Ten champs hope to make up a 17-point deficit in the second half.
