The plan for this was for The Ohio State to be the last team and to make my brother and his friends Distinguished Alumni and make a bunch of Uncle Semi jokes and give them a reason to enjoy this segment. But the Hawkeyes ruined my plans. This team is all rebounding, no shooting, and mostly all-white. After watching that Big Ten trophy ceremony, I seriously considered whether or not we need affirmative action in college basketball. Brunner is a presence that most teams in the tournament don’t have but their lack of shooting is going to catch up with them at some point in this tournament, maybe early.

White Power!
