Here's how Kansas and Ohio State match up in one of the Final Four games Saturday in New Orleans.
SCOUTING REPORT: Ohio State's 78-67 loss at Kansas on Dec. 10 comes with a huge asterisk because the Buckeyes' best player, Jared Sullinger, missed the game due to back spasms. Sullinger has made 27 free throws in four NCAA tournament games, the most of any player in the field. Sullinger's inside matchup with Kansas' Thomas Robinson may require a boxing judge and a cut man. Kansas wants to run more than Ohio State, a half court team. On defense, Buckeyes' guard Aaron Craft is a great on-ball defender. Kansas played mostly man-to-man in the regular season but has effectively used a triangle-and-two zone defense at key moments to win close NCAA games. Kansas really hadn't played that well in three NCAA wins, two by a total of six points, and got to play North Carolina minus star guard Kendall Marshall.
