"Nobody" Is The Best Defender Ohio State Star G D'Angelo Russell Has Faced This Season

D'Angelo is confident, borderline cocky, but that's OK.

The Ohio State star freshman guard is perhaps the best player in college basketball. He's averaging 19.6 points, 5.6 rebounds and five assists a contest this season. Russell scored 28 points during the Buckeyes' overtime victory against VCU in the NCAA Tournament's Second Round on Thursday. Surely, he'll be in the NBA next year; he's projected to be a top-five pick.

He's maybe the toughest guard in the sport, but he's faced at least a couple good defenders this season, right? Wrong.

That's not really how you're supposed to answer that question, D'Angelo, but we're fine with it.

Ohio State and Arizona are set to tip off at 5:15 p.m. E.T. Saturday. The game will be televised on CBS.
