Memphis Falls to Ohio State, 92-76 

Memphis traded baskets and leads with Ohio State for most of the game, but the Buckeyes pulled away in the last five minutes as Memphis lost three key players to fouls and OSU center Greg Oden dominated the paint — and Joey Dorsey.

Dorsey had called Oden "overrated" in a pre-game interview, but it was Oden who let his game do the talking. Dorsey was held scoreless (including a missed point-blank dunk) and fouled out late in the second half with only three rebounds.

Memphis got valiant play from Jeremy Hunt (26 pts.), Chris Douglas-Roberts (14), Antonio Anderson (10) and Robert Dozier (9 pts., 10 rebounds), but in the end, Ohio State was too deep and too good, finishing the game with 18 straight free throws.

Memphis ends its season in the Elite Eight for the second straight year, winning 33 and losing 4.

Box score, shot chart, recap.
