The Buckeyes take a big hit with the loss of Sullinger and Buford but Thomas will do everything to pick up the scoring slack. Thomas has never seen a shot that he didn’t like and I wouldn’t be surprised if he lead the Big Ten in scoring. Craft is one of the best defenders in the country but will have to do more on offense for the Buckeyes to be successful. With all that being said the ultimate measure of their success will lie in the hands of seldom used sophomore Williams. Williams came in as a McDonald’s All American and his growth in his 2nd year could be what Buckeyes need to return the to the Final Four.
