Ohio State 85
I mean just wow. I have four teams I seriously follow, and Ohio is the last one still in. I was all ready to write the obit on the season. Twenty freaking points down and they win it. Wow.
UPDATES. I've been looking around for indications of how OSU's comeback fits in history. The Beacon Journal notes that the biggest comeback ever was from 22 points down. OSU came back from a 17 point halftime deficit. That's the biggest ever comeback in the Sweet Sixteen or later, the biggest comeback to a win in regulation and the second biggest tournament comeback overall.
Next up is Memphis. If they can keep their hot free throw shooting pace from the second half, they should do well as Memphis is terrible at the stripe.
