Breathe a sigh of relief, NBA scouts.

Looks like we're gonna get that Jared Sullinger vs. Thomas Robinson matchup after all.

"[Sullinger] just told me he feels great," said Ohio State coach Thad Matta. "He said he feels a lot better. He said he woke up dancing this morning."

That's good news for the second-ranked Buckeyes considering Sullinger missed last weekend's win against Texas Pan-American with back spasms. Consequently, the 6-foot-9 All-American had been unofficially listed as questionable for Saturday's game at No. 13 Kansas. But questionable has now turned to probable, meaning the most likely scenario has the two prospects ranked first and second in the National Player of the Year Watch banging bodies on Saturday inside Allen Fieldhouse.

Sullinger is averaging 19.1 points and 10.3 rebounds per game.

Robinson is averaging 17.4 points and 12.0 rebounds per game.

Both are projected lottery picks for next June's NBA Draft.

Kansas fans want to see Sullinger in the lineup. The regular season is for testing your team and what a test Sullinger is for T-Rob and Withey. Go Jayhawks!!
