Best bet on the Tube

 

After Kansas knocked off Ohio State for the second time in two meetings last basketball season, this time in the national semifinals, Buckeyes guard Lenzelle Smith Jr. didn’t have the heart to even watch the championship game. He temporarily lost interest. But when Ohio State’s schedule came out this summer and Smith saw that No. 9 Kansas was coming to play at the seventh-ranked Buckeyes today (1 p.m., CBS), he made special note of it. The teams have changed – each lost their top player from last season’s Final Four matchup. But a lot still is riding on it when the Jayhawks (8-1) and Buckeyes (8-1) meet for the third time in little more than a year. – AP
