Yeah no sleep walking here. Good to see.

Class of 2010

Very quick start!  Doesn't seem like Asheville plays much defense so could be a big scoring day for the Buckeyes.

I would love to see them hang a hundy on Asheville

hopefully Craft gets back on track

Craft harassing Scott on d in practice has turned Scott into a heck of on ball defender

Scott has been great on defensive!

Q needs to settle down at times...called for travelling twice last game and already once today.
Craft getting his offensive game going would be nice to see!

Shannon Scott dropping dimes!

good balanced scoring so far

Good ball movement on offense and executing our fast breaks Defense looks pretty good too forcing turnovers.

Wayne Woodrow Hayes

Rav with a strong 1st half and the Buckeyes are still on pace for that hundy!

The Hornsby kid is keeping Asheville breathing

Cover the damn kid already

captain obvious's picture

Tank only has 6 and we have 40 with 3 mins left in 1st half is amazing

Smiths game is vastly improved

Seems like Matta told Lenzelle he has the green light on offense and Smith is taking advantage and showing some nice skills on the offensive end

might want to give the open three to tank not Scott

Scott 7 and Craft  with 5 assists
Is there a better  1 2 PG duo in the country

I'm a friend of thunder is it any wonder lightning strikes me

bhartman13's picture

Nope!  Once Scott's jumper gets better he will be lethal.

bhartman13's picture

Nice 1st half and once they stop Hornsby this game will open up and the Buckeyes will cruise to a 30+ point win.

captain obvious's picture

shooting 59%
but only 2-10 from three

Really impressed with the team the last few games. In what looked to be a Tank or bust kind of year, guys have stepped up, and it now appears that EVERYONE on the floor is a scoring threat.

captain obvious's picture

Smith and Ross sure appear to be

everyone complained about attendance last game
but where are the usual suspects on here?

Damn thefirstrow link quit working!

Love the unselfish play today. Ravenals been great, and Thompsons made some tough baskets. Transition play is a beautiful thing to see

I have a feeling OSU players are taking out their best games on lesser opponents, especially after knowing they left Duke's court with an L, knowing they should have won that game. Ha.

captain obvious's picture

a little easier against UNC ASHEVILLE  kids
than the 10 MCdonalds All Ammericans on DUKE

great d today leading to alot of easy buckets

It sucks with no BTN on our cable system in Tulsa.

Trey McDonald is out Amir Williams'ing Amir Williams. Trey needs to see some of Amir's minutes next game. He's playing and doing exactly what everyone expected Amir to do and Amir just looks lost. He clearly is still trying to mentally catch up and you can see that by him drop stepping to the wrong side when he had an easy layup if done correctly.
 
Either way, one of these guys needs to step up to help Ravenel off the bench.

Don't give up... Don't ever give up.

okiebuck's picture

Don't like hearing that; I had high hopes for Amir this year; thought he would be a force in the paint; especially on D. 

"Fate has cards that it don't want to show"

OurHonorDefend09's picture

Shannon Scott looking like Aaron Craft on speed; however, makes it extremely exciting to see this team run in transition. If he starts hitting his jump shot, this team is going to be filthy come March.

Don't give up... Don't ever give up.

okiebuck's picture

No doubt; we need both of them to be more consistent with their jumper.

Shannon Scott's line today: 7 points, 9 assists and 6 steals in 21 minutes. It's clicking for him, folks.

Nearly a double double for Scott. Now, to think of a good nickname for him......
