Ohio State Looks Dominant [David Stefanini]

This from

Greg Oden took a half to get acclimated. Once he settled in, he became the force on offense that No. 1 Ohio State needed for its 15th straight victory.

"This is my first go-around in these type of tournaments, so I just feed off the guys that have been there before," the Buckeyes' prize freshman said Friday when his second-half play powered a 72-62 win over Michigan in the Big Ten quarterfinals.

Oden had 15 of his 22 points in the second half as Ohio State fought off the Wolverines, who had a whopping 47-25 rebounding edge but still couldn't stop OSU's 7-footer.

Ohio State already has secured a #1 seed in the tournament. If they play the way they did tonight they will be number one in every one's eyes come April.
