When No. 9 Kansas comes to 7th-ranked Ohio State on Saturday, both teams seek a signature win

After Kansas knocked off Ohio State for the second time in two meetings last season, this time in the national semifinals, Buckeyes guard Lenzelle Smith Jr. didn't have the heart to even watch the championship game.

He temporarily lost interest.

But when Ohio State's schedule came out this summer and Smith saw that No. 9 Kansas was coming to play at the seventh-ranked Buckeyes on Saturday, he made special note of it.

The teams have changed — each lost their top player from last season's Final Four matchup. But a lot still is riding on it when the Jayhawks (8-1) and Buckeyes (8-1) meet for the third time in little more than a year, this time at Value City Arena.
