Basketball Bucks deserve a thread of there own.

Very nice wins over Cincinnati and Villanova to start the season.

Yeah, looking good so far. Especially considering they're not at full strength with A. Wesson hurt and Jallow not having suited up. Obviously the former more than the latter, but still, having that success with your rotation missing one big piece and one role player is a good sign.

Will be good for the conference to have a few stud teams OOC. Michigan State will be one and Maryland has looked great, but the rest was kind of a toss-up going into the season. Purdue looks awful thus far and they, with OSU, were the next best hope. OSU becoming a legit top team OOC helps everyone in conference with the ability to get some big wins on the resume.

I would very much enjoy getting into watching OSU basketball again...it’s been a few years since I cared much.

Hope to catch the game tonight. Looking like I'll miss the first half though.

Those script Buckeyes jerseys are fire.

In the 2nd half the Buckeyes need to stop fumbling the ball.

It really was. I was there, the Dome was rocking. Then Bacot went down. Completely changed the game. But, OSU was phenomenal in the 2nd half and Carolina was garbage. OSU was running basic concepts on O and the Heels couldn’t do anything.

The Bacot injury definitely hurt Carolina. They had a bit of run right after he went down, but didn't have much of anything in the second half. Still, I'd say Carolina's biggest problem is that if a team has enough presence defensively to not let them get to the hoop and force them to try jumpers, they are in trouble because, man, those dudes reminded me of when I was playing pick-up in college trying to throw up shit. It's one thing to hear the announcers talking about how they're not a good shooting team, but then when you watch airballs and balls barely hitting the rim with regularity, it's kind of jarring.

I don't know anything about this UNC team, but it seems they have zero playmakers. 

Ohio State...."who's got it better than us?!" 

What a time to be a fan. Reminds me of '06. Hopefully things turn out better in 19/20.

Buckeyes open up Big Ten play with a 106-74 butt whipping of Penn State.

OSU should be #1, but it will be Kansas.

If OSU can keep this up they will get to play first weekend of tourney in Cleveland.

I would assume they’d have to collapse to miss that. Even a 4 seed should get them the regional advantage.

Suffered first loss last night as they looked a bit listless, they were missing Washington and Minnesota looked really good for one night.

As a fun side note, if Northwestern would upset Michigan State, home teams would be 14-0 in the first two games of the conference schedule and all 14 teams in the B1G would be 1-1 in conference play.

Back to back years OSU is #1 in the initial NET Rankings.
