Video: Is Thomas the key for Ohio State


BOSTON - The Buckeyes will face a different look than most of the Big Ten employs later today when they face Cincinnati and its four guard lineup. Ohio State's conference is known more for big men and banging in the paint and while Yancy Gates can deliver that bruising experience the rest of the team is much smaller and quicker.

But what do the Buckeyes think about the look that the Bearcats will give them and could DeShaun Thomas be the X-Factor for the team in posing match-up issues for Cincinnati when it comes to size and shooting ability?

We caught up with several Buckeyes as well as Thomas himself to ask that question and more about what they think about the problems that UC will present.
