So, why is Northern Kentucky triple teaming Rav?

George Clooney told them to.

Class of 2010

I didn't think George Clooney was afraid of Rav's eyebrows.

We are continuing our cold streak.

Perhaps they were told to try and take a lot of 3's because if they need to get points by going inside they know it's a given? Matta seems awfuly relaxed with how many 3's we're taking; especially with how few of them are going in.

Craft already with three steals. That's nice to see.
I like the way Rav plays.

We have come out flat, and Thad is playing Ross quite a bit today. This is encouraging to see.

Fumble, Northern Kentucky. Ohio State recovers.

Snodgrass for N.K. --- guarded him over the Summer a men's league game....he's just a freshman, but he's pretty quick & tough for his size

Really? What position is he? I can't hear my TV.

He's a point guard for Northern Kentucky. He commited to Navy, then changed his mind in June & signed with N.K.. He's a true freshman, wears # 30.
He's only about 5'11'' tops, I'd say. He went to the same high school I did & there's a men's summer league a bunch of guys play in ever year. Pretty quick and a good shooter.

We should make a drinking game for basketball. Every time craft makes a steal, drink.

Ross is a great free-throw shooter

I LOVE Aaron Craft but can he make a frickin' layup? Jesus!

The South will NOT rise again!

Ross is in beast mode! getting in done all over the court - scoring, rebounding, even swatting the ball

Craft is still cold. It's frustrating. Hopefully he gets it all out of his system now.

yes LadyBuck --- I agree...hoping it's just a little slump. Here's to hoping OSU gets those out of the system in non-conference schedule now, rather than having those slumps come tourney time in March.

Exactly. It also is an excellent time for Thad to gain confidence in his young players (read: Ross).

Great ball movement, but come on, FINISH.

LaQuinton Ross is good at basketball.

Nice to see ADV shooting well despite coming into the game cold.

...and it's nice to see him spend time with the "little people", being an actor and all. The success of Napolean Dynamite hasn't gone to his head. It's refreshing, really. Hah...no, I'm just kidding. I like ADV --- seems like a fun kid...wish him nothing but success. I hope he can continue to bury that 3-ball.

LQRossIsThePresent!
Finally, he gets some good minutes and was balling! 
Almost had his first double double at tOSU.
