    As crazy as it may seem seeing as the current No. 1 team in the country resides in the WCC, there’s a pretty good chance that this conference could end up being just a one-bid league this year. Gonzaga has been fantastic, and while they may not actually be the best team or the national…

    Ohio State v Indiana

    All it took was a trio of tough drives from Aaron Craft and a sensational defensive performance sparked by Shannon Scott and, all of a sudden, Indiana, who many believed to be the best team in the country heading into Tuesday night, no longer had themselves locked into a No. 1 seed.

    Mar 5, 2013, 11:35 PM EDT

    Aaron Craft

    Ohio State’s Aaron Craft has been the textbook example of a tough, physical defensive point guard for much of this season. He has been the centerpiece of a defense that is, in turn, the engine of the Buckeyes’ Top 15 attack. But Tuesday it wasn’t just Craft who was the wrench in the system of…
