FINAL HALF OF FOUR

Evidently, Ohio State coach Thad Matta looked down the bench and locked eyes with Greg Oden. The big man, sitting out with three fouls, nodded. "Let's go," Matta told him, adding his usual advice in such situations: "Play real hard and don't foul anybody."
It was close, and then it wasn’t. Oden followed orders perfectly, dominating like only a 7-footer can over the decisive stretch in the second half to carry the top-seeded Buckeyes past Memphis 92-76 and into the Final Four.

UCLA will go as far as their guards will take them and yesterday they took them 45 points worth. The two starting backcourt guys were the only Bruins in double figures led by Arron Affalo’s 24 ponts. Too bad, according to Papa “Big (L)East” Geeeee-leo, the Big 12 is underrated. Rock, chalk, chicken hawk. That sound you hear is brackets exploding nationwide.
