    Damn that was fun to watch.  Thought they'd hang in there the first half then fade, but they took it to Sparty.  Bates-Diop is a beast.  Was nice to see the rest of the team play with confidence and no fear as well.   Chris Holtmann is the man.

    Another impresssive win tonight vs. MD.

    I thought they might have a let down after MSU and they started a little slow for a second but then they looked good. 

    Now i think we have a 3 game stretch on the road to see how they handle that.

    With Rutgers starting it out and seeming to be at least a bit tougher than they have been. Maybe not an actual good team, but it'll be a decent road test. Besides we gotta get revenge for that "out with a whimper" game last year in the B1G tournament. That was flat-out sad.

    I like this teams energy especially on defense. Lots of improvement from last year.

    Go Bucks!!

    OSU 68

    Rutgers 46

    Solid outing for OSU in a tough place to play. Next game is Wednesday at Northwestern.

    Early in the year, I thought they could finish 5th to 7th in the league simply because the entire league was looking way down during the non-conference part of the season. Right now, due to a combination of them playing really well right now and the league seeming pretty average and full of parity, as long as they stay healthy, I'd be disappointed at anything less than top 3.

    I guess since they're two games in front of third place, that's not really going out on a limb, but regardless of what other teams' league records were, I'd be thinking the same thing.

    Another day, another B1G win. Four home games against blah teams in a row before going to Purdue for what could be a huge match-up.

    Another solid effort and their defense is much better than last year.

    Very competetive game tonight with Nebraska who are very good on defense. Buckeyes up 24-22 at half on BTN.

    Good win for the buckeyes tonight. Kind of a grind it out game tonight. Defense came up big down the stretch.

    Penn St hits their first 5 treys of the game to take a 16-6 lead.  Once they were up 12, the Bucks started chipping away and tied it at 30 with 5 mins left in the half.  Now halftime  and PSU up 38-37.

    I am so damn fucking sick of banked in 3’s. I fucking hate them. Miss a shot 3 feet long and get 3 points. Drives me crazy.

    Thu, Jan 25, 2018 10:12 PM

    Amazing the Bucks came back from a 13 point 2nd half deficit(13 with 8 min left, and 9 with 3:20 left), due to foul trouble, to tie it with 5 sec left on a 30 footer by Bates-Diop.  Then get beat by that 35' bank shot.

    KBD was unbelievable down the stretch. 

    Penn State was like 11/14 from three.  Tough to beat that.  35 footer banked in for the win.  Ridiculous.

    OSU looked strong tonight. They took it to Indiana all night long. Nice bounce back after the Penn State loss.

    It’s depressing watching Indiana. 12-11. I had hoped Crean had gotten them to a point where this wasn’t expected, then he was fired and no talent remained. Ugh.

    Yep, the game basically went as I'd expected, although I did think they might pull away more in the second half instead of just maintaining a 14-18 point lead nearly the entire way. Indiana's not that good, very inconsistent and just two days removed from a tough home loss to Purdue where they did play tough, so I didn't think they'd have much in their tank for OSU. So when it went from 4-5 to 14-5 really quickly, I figured that it'd be a fairly easy win.

    Now just have to do the same to Illinois (whose won a couple straight and destroyed The Official B1G Embarrassment last night) and set up the big road game at Purdue next week.

    I've been tuning in to almost every game the past few weeks. 

    What a difference this offseason + the coaching change has made. They were downright unwatchable at times last year and seriously lacking effort. Major turnaround.
