Joe D'Amico's NCAAB 28-6-1 No Limit Winner
Ohio State vs. Northwestern,
02/29/2012 20:30 EDT,
Score: 75 - 73
Point Spread: -7/-110 Ohio State
Today's winner is Ohio State over North Western. This is my No Limit Winner.
Ohio State has taken 5 in a row and 9 of the L10 (SU) meetings over North Western, including an 87-54 thumping back in December. Since that meeting, the Buckeyes are 10-5 SU while the Wildcats are 7-8 SU. In the first meeting, OSU held NW to just 32% shooting and rattled the Wildcats best-scorer, John Shurma. Shurma was 5 of 18 that night. Over the L3 games, DeShaun Thomas has averaged 20.6 PPG for Ohio State. Oh yeah, the Buckeyes also have Jared Sullinger and William Buford (31.9 PPG and 13.8 RPG combined). Right now, Ohio State is tied for 2nd place with Michigan in the Big 10 at 11-5. MSU is in first place with a 13-4 mark. Ohio State MUST win today and against Michigan State this weekend to get their share of the Big 10 Title. This game tonight will not be left to chance. North Western is the worst team in the Conference at both stopping 3-pointers and rebounding. OSU is one of the best teams in the Conference on the glass. Don't forget that NW is a mere 1-6 this season vs. ranked opponents, losing by an average of 14.6 PPG. Take Ohio State. Thank you.
