    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.

    LaQuinton Ross finally found his scoring touch, but that wasn’t the main reason the Buckeyes won.

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

    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…

  5. Nikola Cerina, LaQuinton Ross ejected after scuffle (VIDEO)

    Feb 20, 2014, 9:49 AM EDT

    Northwestern v Ohio State

    Northwestern center Nikola Cerina and Ohio State forward LaQuinton Ross were both ejected from last night’s 76-60 win for the No. 24 Buckeyes. Cerina and Amir Williams got tangled up and, after a lengthy review, the referees determined that he threw a punch. Ross didn’t, however, and was instead ejected for a pair of dead-ball…

  6. The give and take of LaQuinton Ross

    Jan 12, 2014, 4:14 PM EDT

    Bryant v Ohio State

    No. 3 Ohio State is a good basketball team. You don’t make it to January undefeated — you don’t climb all the way up to No. 3 in the country — if you’re a good basketball team. So we’re not arguing that here, even if no. 20 Iowa’s 84-74 win in Columbus was the second…

  7. 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…

  8. LaQuinton Ross is on fire, but should No. 3 Ohio State be worried about big men?

    Dec 31, 2013, 4:03 PM EDT

    Bryant v Ohio State

    No. 3 Ohio State kicked off their Big Ten season on New Year’s Eve with a 78-69 win at Purdue that actually more impressive than it sounds. The Boilermakers are a good Big Ten team when A.J. Hammons comes to play, and on Tuesday afternoon he did. The seven-footer finished with 18 points, 16 boards,…

  9. Conference Catchups: Can Ohio State or Wisconsin hold off Michigan State?

    Aaron Craft, Todd Mayo

    Over the course of the holiday week, we at College Basketball Talk will be detailing what we believe will be the New Year’s Resolutions of some of the nation’s most talented, most disappointing, and thoroughly enigmatic teams.

  11. 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…

  12. 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…

  13. Health issues clearing up for Ohio State as season approaches

    Nov 3, 2013, 11:25 PM EDT

    LaQuinton Ross, Lucas Strouble

    With Deshaun Thomas gone from last season’s Elite Eight team, the Ohio State Buckeyes have a question to answer as they approach the start of the 2013-14 campaign: how will they account for the 19.8 points per game that Thomas provided? If their 93-63 exhibition victory over Walsh University offered any insight when it comes…

  17. Ohio State has multiple options as they address the loss of Deshaun Thomas

    Ohio State Buckeyes' Ross watches his game-winning three-point shot along with Arizona Wildcats' Lyons in the closing seconds of their West Regional NCAA men's basketball game in Los Angeles

    With leading scorer Deshaun Thomas now playing professionally the Ohio State Buckeyes find themselves looking for a player capable of taking the reins offensively. But if anything the 2013-14 season is setting up to be one in which multiple players shoulder the load for Thad Matta’s squad. One of those options is junior forward LaQuinton…

  19. Aaron Craft is the hero, LaQuinton Ross comes up big for Ohio State Sunday

    Mar 24, 2013, 2:54 PM EDT

    LaQuinton Ross

    Aaron Craft missed a jump shot with 29 seconds remaining and the game tied at 75-75 Sunday in Dayton against Iowa State. The ball then slipped out of bounds off of the Cyclones, giving Ohio State one more shot. And all Craft needed was another chance. As time winded down, Craft pulled up from the…
