Mike Conley, Huge in Game 2, the Memphis Grizzlies’ Ticket

As they say, you’re never going to win the lottery if you don’t have a ticket.

The ticket in the NBA is making the playoffs with the Championship being the lottery, and once you’ve made the postseason anything can happen. Just look at the eighth-seeded Western Conference team Memphis Grizzlies and their six-game handling of the top-seeded San Antonio Spurs. They also took a bite out of the fourth-seeded Oklahoma City Thunder in the opening game of their second round series.

And although they lost game two 111-102, Mike Conley (an Ohio State Buckeyes one and done) had a team high 24 points on 10-15 shooting, 3-5 from distance, to go with 8 assists.

THE Ohio State Buckeyes Big Ten Preview

Ohio State has stormed to a 13-0 start, winning every game by double-digits. They are also 1-0 against the AP top-25 (win against former #10 Florida). While they haven’t been tested early on, the Big Ten schedule will prove just how tough the Buckeyes really are.

Game to Watch: OSU at Wisconsin, February 12. The Buckeyes are 0-7 at the Kohl Center during Bo Ryan’s current nine-year stint with the Badgers. This includes the Greg Oden/Conley runner-up team of ’06-’07. By the time these two teams meet, the Buckeyes may very well be the #1 team in the nation. The Badger football team already knocked off the then #1 ranked Buckeyes. Could this be a similar fate for the OSU basketball team? This may just be the best game out of the entire Big Ten schedule, let alone Ohio State’s.
