    Down 18 midway through the second half, Ohio State seemed destined to drop their second-straight game to Nebraska. An unlikely hero, though, helped carry the Buckeyes to the Big Ten tournament semifinals.

  6. Shooting issues plague No. 22 Ohio State in loss at Penn State

    Feb 27, 2014, 10:19 PM EDT

    matta

    Since the start of Big Ten play one of the questions concerning No. 22 Ohio State was who would provide the perimeter shooting needed to factor into the Big Ten race. With the lack of a quality scoring threat in the post thanks to Deshaun Thomas’ early departure, those shot-makers became even more important for…

  7. Aaron Craft, Ohio State return the favor with 76-69 road win over No. 17 Iowa

    Feb 4, 2014, 9:41 PM EDT

    Aaron Craft

    The first meeting between Iowa and Ohio State ended with a double-digit road victory for the Hawkeyes. That was the second loss in a four-game losing streak for the Buckeyes. That skid continued until the end of January when the Buckeyes lost to Penn State at home in overtime. On Saturday, Ohio State looked like…

  8. Lenzelle Smith: ‘As a team, we don’t care enough. It’s embarrassing.’

    Jan 30, 2014, 12:19 PM EDT

    Ohio State v Michigan State

    No. 23 Ohio State has lost five of their last six games, and Wednesday night’s may have been the toughest to swallow. The Buckeyes lost to Penn State. At home. After blowing a seven-point lead in the final three minutes, giving up a game-tying three on a defensive breakdown and blowing a three-point lead with…

  9. Assigned Reading: Sports Illustrated’s ‘The art of the steal’

    Jan 25, 2014, 10:30 AM EDT

    Fuquan Edwin, Russ Smith

    I really enjoyed “The art of the steal” by Sports Illustrated‘s Brian Hamilton on Thursday, which broke down many of the nation’s best at producing steals. The piece takes an in-depth look into the thought process and methodology of players such as Jordan Adams at UCLA, Briante Weber at VCU, Fuquan Edwin at Seton Hall and…

  10. Lenzelle Smith Jr. rebounds as No. 17 Ohio State beats Illinois

    Jan 23, 2014, 9:54 PM EDT

    smith

    After playing well on the offensive end of the floor for much of non-conference play, stringing together seven consecutive double-digit outings at one point, Ohio State senior guard Lenzelle Smith Jr. struggled in the 17th-ranked Buckeyes’ first six Big Ten games. Reaching double figures in three of their six games entering Thursday’s matchup with Illinois,…

  11. The comeback was thrilling, but Ohio State’s offense remains concerning

    Jan 8, 2014, 12:20 AM EDT

    Ohio State v Michigan State

    Plenty of people had questions about No. 3 Ohio State entering their game with No. 5 Michigan State at the Breslin Center on Tuesday night. Can a team with such issues on the offensive end of the floor really be the third-best team in the country? Does winning at sputtering Marquette, or beating a depleted…

  13. Notre Dame chokes away eight-point lead in 58 seconds vs. No. 3 Ohio State

    Dec 21, 2013, 10:10 PM EDT

    Notre Dame v Iowa

    There is no questioning No. 3 Ohio State’s ability on the defensive end of the floor. Aaron Craft and Shannon Scott may be the two best on-ball defenders in the country, and Sam Thompson isn’t too far behind them. The Buckeyes have played a fairly weak schedule, but it’s not a mistake or a statistical…

  14. Shannon Scott, Sam Thompson lead No. 10 Ohio State to a win over No. 17 Marquette

    Nov 16, 2013, 4:06 PM EDT

    Ohio State v Marquette

    In a season that’s been defined by an excess of fouls that stems from an effort to increase the amount of scoring that we see on a nightly basis in college hoops, it was somewhat refreshing to see a good old-fashioned defensive slug-fest on Saturday afternoon. No. 10 Ohio State held No. 17 Marquette to…

    Ohio State Buckeyes head coach Matta talks with guard Craft in the second half against the Wichita State Shockers during their West Regional NCAA men's basketball game in Los Angeles

    Believe it or not, Aaron Craft will head into this season as one of the nation’s most polarizing players. He embodies every single one of the clichés that sportswriters love to use — heady, gritty, tough, team-first, winner, etc., etc., etc. — but his individual numbers are far less impressive that the win-loss record of Ohio…

    One of the most underrated college basketball twitter feeds out there is that of @CRAFTroomies which, as you can probably figure out, was put together by Aaron Craft’s roommates to document the life and times of Ohio State’s star point guard. Usually, the feed is chock full of tweets about taco night, pictures of Craft…

  20. Craft and Company ran out of miracles this time

    Mar 30, 2013, 10:52 PM EDT

    Wichita State v Ohio State

    Ohio State junior point guard Aaron Craft has established a bit of a pattern in the NCAA tournament. As the Buckeyes faced down Iowa State in the Round of 32, it was Craft who pulled up with the game on the line and coolly buried the game-winning three point shot. Against Arizona in the Sweet…

  21. Stifling defense leads No. 14 Ohio State to win over No. 2 Indiana

    Mar 5, 2013, 11:35 PM EDT

    Aaron Craft

    Ohio State’s Aaron Craft has been the textbook example of a tough, physical defensive point guard for much of this season. He has been the centerpiece of a defense that is, in turn, the engine of the Buckeyes’ Top 15 attack. But Tuesday it wasn’t just Craft who was the wrench in the system of…

  22. Tim Hardaway, Jr., No. 3 Michigan outlast No. 10 Ohio State in overtime thriller

    Feb 5, 2013, 11:33 PM EDT

    Tim Hardaway, Jr.

    Michigan junior Tim Hardaway, Jr. has spent much of the 2012-13 season proving that he has become more than just a three-point shooter in his third year in with the Wolverines. But on Tuesday night, he leaned on that three-point shot again and led No. 3 Michigan to a grueling 76-74 overtime win against No.…
