    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.

  9. 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…

  10. No. 24 Ohio State earns huge road win over No. 14 Wisconsin

    Going into Saturday’s Big Ten clash in Madison, it was hard to tell who needed the win more: No. 24 Ohio State or No. 14 Wisconsin. Both teams entered Big Ten play with undefeated records but have since struggled in league play as the Buckeyes had dropped five out of six games entering Madison while…

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

    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,…

    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. What can we say, we’re in a giving mood. Who else made Resolutions? Click here to find out.…

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

    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…

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

    Nov 3, 2013, 11:25 PM EST

    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. Buckeyes get verbal from Italian import

    Apr 21, 2012, 2:49 PM EST

    Final Four - Ohio State v Kansas

    Generally speaking, Thad Matta has his team rosters set well in advance. The Ohio State boss has made a habit out of nailing down bonanza recruiting classes well in advance of his need, and he always seems to have his next superstar big man in waiting. This season, his first verbal has come from a…

    For some coaches, it’s enough for them to just make it to the NCAA tournament. You can see it in their face, like when Mark Gottfried went wild as NC State was announced, or when Brett Reed raised his hands above his head in victory after beating Duke. But, what most people don’t see are…
