Greg Oden wasn't going to let foul trouble stop him, not with a chance to take Ohio State to the Final Four.
Frustrated by fouls for a third straight game, Oden made the
most of his time on court during a key stretch of the second half,
carrying the top-seeded Buckeyes past Memphis 92-to-76 today in the
South Regional finals.
Oden had 17 points and nine rebounds.
Ohio State will travel to Atlanta for a showdown next weekend
with the winner of the North Carolina-Georgetown game tomorrow.
The Buckeyes last made the Final Four in 1999. That trip later
was expunged from the records because of N-C-A-A violations, making
their last official appearance in 1968.
