That latenight game at FedExForum was fun, but the prize of this ongoing 24 hours of college basketball tips at 6 p.m. ET when No. 4 Ohio State visits No. 9 Florida. It should be great, if only because of the opportunity to see Florida's big and experienced frontline of Vernon Macklin and Alex Tyus try to slow Ohio State freshman Jared Sullinger.
By now, you know what I think of Sullinger.
Here's what Florida coach Billy Donovan thinks of Sullinger:
"I think he's a monster," Donovan told me this weekend. "I think he's great."
Sullinger got 19 points and 14 rebounds in OSU's season-opening win over North Carolina A&T. I'm not necessarily predicting similar numbers tonight, but if the 6-foot-9 forward produces them it would pretty much stop everybody from asking why I named him the CBSSports.com Big Ten Preseason Player of the Year.
