Discussion Topic: PSU vs tOSU at NCAA's

The loss in the dual means absolutely nothing when it comes to predicting the finish at the NCAA tournament.
In a same (dual vs tourney) but different (obviously high level of PSU) situation, Mechanicsburg was beat by 1 point in the state dual semis by Edison last year (lost the flip and that dictated 3 key match-ups we wanted but didn't get) but we went on to win the state tournament, beating Edison by 47 points.
The path to tOSU winning their 2nd title is the same as it was before. Get big points from 125, 174, 184, 197, and 285 and get AA's from at least 4 of the other 5. Their 5 big scorers can keep them within striking distance while the other 4/5 guys need to make up the difference.
IF they do this, IMHO, it will take an even better performance than PSU had last year to beat them.
