No March Madness experience is complete without compelling Cinderella stories, and the Ohio Bobcats have been one of the better underdog stories this month.

The 13-seed Bobcats knocked off No. 4 seed Virginia behind 17 points from Ben Vander Plas and a near triple-double from NBA-bound point guard Jason Preston.

Virginia possessed one of the best defensive units in the nation, but its offense was non-existent, with 58 points on 35% shooting from the field.

Creighton’s top-20 (per KenPom) offense is a completely different animal from Virginia, and Ohio will need to put an even more concerted defensive effort to slow down big-time scorer Marcus Zegarowski (17 points vs. UCSB) and Co.

Despite the Bluejays seemingly having a much easier matchup than expected, our PRO Report shows that the edge on Monday goes to the Bobcats.
