Buckeyes ace point guard Aaron Craft shuts down counterpart Kevin Pangos, and Jared Sullinger outmuscles Elias Harris down low.
The inside-outside combo of Ezeli, who dominates Orange pivot Fab Melo, and Jenkins, perhaps the best pure shooter in the nation, is more than enough to bust Syracuse's vaunted 2--3 zone.
FSU guard Michael Snaer (14.4 ppg) scores enough to make it interesting, but the Buckeyes' skilled rotation has too many scorers and too many guys who can clamp down on D.
The country's most efficient defense (.843 points per possession) has to hustle against the streaking Commodores, but that's nothing new: The Buckeyes are also second in defensive rebounding rate (75.2%). Sullinger neutralizes Ezeli, while William Buford and Deshaun Thomas flourish on the wings.
