The Wichita State Shockers' forward, Carl Hall, had one of the best games of his life against the Ohio State Buckeyes, especially on defense with 6 blocks. His teammate Malcolm Armstead had quite a game himself with 7 rebounds, 3 steals, 3 assists, and 14 points.
For the Ohio State Buckeyes the only thing missing from DeShaun Thomas's stat sheet was a "W", he had 23 points and 5 rebounds for his Buckeyes. That combined with LaQuinton Ross' 19 points and 5 rebounds usually adds up to a win, just not when Aaron Craft plays terrible like he did only making 2 of 12 field goals and playing terrible defense. The Buckeyes were down by double digits for most of the game until they made a huge comeback going on a 22-6 run, but leaving with a final score of 66-70 with the Shockers on top, left a frown on many Buckeye senior's faces.
