Today we will find out who steps up and gets us to the Final 4. I think that Rak is the guy who is the one who will make or break today's game. If he plays well enough to hold down the 5 in the zone and keeps the Ohio St. bigs in check, we will be heading to New Orleans next week. If he plays sloppy or is ineffective, we'll be watching next week.
We all know that we probably have one of the best guard rotations in the country. However, with the absence of Fab Melo, we're kinda thin at power forward and center. Rak just needs to play smart and stay out of foul trouble while getting Sullinger in trouble and this game is ours for the taking.
This team has been so good all season because on any given day someone steps up and takes control of the team. There would be nothing better than for it to happen again. Rak doesn't need to have 20 points and 10 rebounds, but holding Sullinger to 10 points and 5 boards will suffice.
We can do this today. It's time to show the critics just how good this team is. Go Cuse!
