Event Analysis  
1. Team 1 - Strengths Very High   Syracuse's ability to play both a team game and a game of individual stars will have its greatest advantage in the Elite 8 and possibly Final Four.
2. Team 1 - Weaknesses Moderate   Without Melo, Syracuse's rebounding and shot blocking are average.
3. Team 1 - Keys Important   Syracuse will play a stifling zone defense, will cause turnovers, and will get fast break points. The difference in the game will be their ability to make shots under great pressure in a close game in the final moments based on their best player's ability to create their own shots.
4. Team 2 - Strengths Very High   Ohio State has a well developed offense that will keep them in the game. Their zone defense is strong.
5. Team 2 - Weaknesses Moderate   Ohio State is vulnerable to athletic, big teams like Syracuse.
6. Team 2 - Keys Important   Ohio State needs to keep the game close by packing the paint, forcing Syracuse to take outside shots, cutting down on turnovers, and making their outside shots. They need to take the ball to the rim without Melo in the game.
7. Advantage Team 2   Ohio State will capitalize on Melo not being in the game, and will win by 3 or less.
