Two of the top teams nationally, Ohio State and Kansas, and two of the top players in the country, Jared Sullinger and Thomas Robinson, could face off against each other this coming Saturday in Allen Fieldhouse. The non-conference game will have the 2nd ranked Ohio State Buckeyes, an undefeated team, travelling to no. 13 Kansas matching up against the 6-2 Jayhawks who have only lost to Duke and Kentucky. Florida has been the only team to not fall to Ohio State by more than 20 points this season so far.
Kansas forward Thomas Robinson leads the Jayhawks with over 17 points a game while Sullinger has the most points per game of any Buckeye with 19.1. In addition to their scoring power, the two also provide defense and rebounds that are invaluable to their teams. Sullinger sat out the teams last game against Texas-Pan American due to stiffness and spasms in his lower back and could miss the game this weekend, although Kansas coaches feel he will play.
