3. Kansas at Ohio State, Dec. 22
Comment: The rematch of last year’s national semifinal won by the Jayhawks will feature a pair of potential top 10 teams. Point guard Aaron Craft and high-scoring DeShaun Thomas return to lead an Ohio State team that surely will be eager for revenge on its home floor. The Buckeyes will have to do a better job against Travis Releford, whose 15 points and eight rebounds were key to the Jayhawks’ come-from-behind win last March.
