Happy 10 Year Anniversary Ron Lewis

It was 10-years ago that freshmen Greg Oden, Mike Conley and Daquan Cook came to Ohio State and helped lead the Buckeyes all the way to the NCAA championship game where they eventually lost to back-to-back champion Florida. That exciting tournament run, however, never would have happened were it not for a senior on the team. 

In round two of the NCAA tournament, St. Patrick's Day 2007, the Buckeyes were in big trouble against Xavier. They mounted a rally but still trailed by 3 in the closing seconds, when Lewis rose up and nailed a deep 3 to tie the game at 62 and force overtime. The game saving shot rejuvenated the Buckeyes who blew away Xavier in the OT and won 78-71. It's one of the most dramatic shots in Buckeye history--and it has etched the name Ron Lewis forever in Ohio State basketball lore. In honor of the anniversary---here's the call on CBS and a view from inside Rupp Arena that day.
