A rematch of the Sweet 16 two years ago in LA is next up for the Arizona Wildcats here in Portland.
Sean Millers team will meet Ohio State on Saturday at 2:15pm here in round two of the NCAA tournament. The Buckeyes needed overtime to knock off VCU in a very physical matchup at the Moda Center.
Ohio State is led by true freshman point guard D’Angelo Russell, who is an amazing talent and story(more on him tomorrow). Russell is viewed as a potential lottery pick in this years NBA draft if he turns pro. Freshman Ja”sean Tate is part of the Buckeye nucleus.
Buckeye head coach Thad Matta and Arizona’s Sean Miller have a strong friendship that goes back to the mid 1990’s.
