Class Act Sports Behind the Scenes as Ohio State Buckeyes Advance to Final Four(March 26, 2012)
BOSTON, MA -- (Marketwire) -- 03/26/12 -- The NCAA tournament action continued to heat up this weekend, as the field of teams was whittled down to the eventual Final Four. Highlighting the games was a tight contest between the top two seeds in the Eastern portion of the bracket, Ohio State and Syracuse, with the Buckeyes advancing to their first Final Four appearance since 1999 following the 77-70 victory. Jared Ginsberg of Class Act Sports (ClassActSports.com) was everywhere from on the court to inside the locker room to capture the jubilant Ohio State moment.
After taking turns cutting down the net, players returned to the locker room, wearing their championship hats and shirts with pride while speaking to members of the media. Class Act Sports was right in the middle of the action, as Ginsberg interviewed the Buckeyes' entire starting lineup of Deshaun Thomas, Lenzelle Smith Jr., Jared Sullinger, Aaron Craft, and William Buford. Also included were Amir Williams and Evan Ravenel, who contributed some important minutes in the first half when Sullinger ran into foul trouble early on.
While still enjoying the moment, it's clear the young Ohio State team is already looking forward to their next challenge down in New Orleans next weekend.
"It's not a vacation, it's a business trip. We gotta take this as a business trip and do it professionally... At the end of the day, we're down there to win two games, and it starts with the first one," said Sullinger.
Assistant coach Jeff Boals and video coordinator Greg Paulus also took a few minutes to speak with the Class Act Sports crew, lauding their team for their efforts while looking ahead to the Final Four matchup against Kansas.
The entire video and all of the player interviews can be streamed now on ClassActSports.com, which is taking you beyond the game and behind the scenes during this year's NCAA tournament.
