PHONE'S RINGING -- IT'S URBAN ON THE LINE
Does penn st. have moxie on the basketball court as well?
Matta tapping the ball back in bounds to Williams, and then acting like he didn't, is great. Any advantage I will take but I am scared if we need it against Penn State.
Does Penn State look confident? I can't tell
Sam Thompson! Two straight field goals! He looks like an actual basketball player, not just a fast break dunking machine. If he could only do this against good teams, we'd be in great shape.
Sam had to figure that shot out eventually. He takes that baseline jumper so often.
shannon scott..making a jump shot??
Thompson and Scott came to play. Look really good early.
Desean looks like he has cirque du soliel makeup on. Quite the scab! black bandaid.
Cannot understand why Ravenel continues to get minutes.
"Fate has cards that it don't want to show"
Rav is giving us the best minutes at the 5 by far. Glad to see Amir has rebounded okay this game. Rav is the best big defender we have and the best rebounder. He isn't great offensively, but has a decent mid-range jumper. He gets minutes because Amir disappears at times when he is on the court.
He's decent on defense but that's it; he's got no game on the offensive end at all.
Watching the game on mute.
Keep Calm and Ignore the Trolls.
I'm at my kids bb practice. Can I get a score update please?
29-18 at half.
Thanks. It seems like the 6 year olds I'm watching are out scoring the Bucks
43-27 tOSU. Thompson playing really well.
55-38 with 5 min. left.
Penn State building a house with these bricks. OSU looking decent on offense so far.
Class of 2010.
I like the way Trey looks in the post on offense. His screens are clean and he is an active mover whereas some of our other post guys ten to stand and watch a lot.
27-15 Buckeyes but we should be blowing them out of the gym.
27-15 OSU. 3min left.
Gotta love how Ohio State should be up at least 20+ if they would learn how to shoot the basketball.
Basketball IQ has to be lowest of any ranked team
Ross and Smith seem hesitant to shoot. Odd how they just don't have a rythym down.
Thanks for the updates!
Sorry, but Ohio State isnt a top 20 basketball team till they learn to shoot the basketball aside from Thomas.
we should surely be up a couple of 10-spots right now...i just don't get it with this team. No real presence down low and a lot of situations of driving into the middle of the lane and going up with no real plan. frustrating.
"Winter is coming" - Urban Meyer
Oh sure they are; but I agree with you that our shooting is terrible and we need an inside game as well. There is no team out there that is head and shoulders above anyone else right now. The Dukies get blown out by Miami...and when was the last time that neither Carolina or UK was unranked??
Why are people so down on this team? We are up 11 on the road, with Thomas spending a good portion of the half on the bench. Thompson and Scott looked good shooting the ball, and our defense and rebounding was excellent. I know penn st. isn't a good team, but is a 22 point win on the road (current pace) really that bad? I agree that we struggle offensively at times, but am encouraged in the improvement I've seen from Thompson, Scott and Q this year.
Should be a total blowout...playing to PsU's level.

Williams should dominate the block.......he plays so small for his size
I'm with you Oregonian; I see this team getting better; albeit slower then we all want but as long as we stay solid on defense we can play with anyone. Part of it I think is that we've been somewhat spoiled by success; I mean 20 W's every year is pretty dang good; I don't care who you are.
Sorry Slam, it's "Shooting" Sam Thompson!
Let's be honest here - Penn State never had a chance with their two best ballhandlers out for the year: Tim Frazier......and Jerry Sandusky.
i feel ashamed for laughing
Haaaa that was pretty clever
"You win with people." - Woody Hayes
Did anyone see Williams play in HS? Was he physical with offensive post skills then? Or a terrific defender in the lane? Are fans' expectations inconsistent with the player he's always been? Expecting Amir to be Sully-Lite is perhaps as foolish as expecting KG to be Mini-Brax. Two guys with two totally different (and clearly one it superior to the other) skill sets.
There's no dominant big men in the NCAA this year. If Slam Thompson plays like he has today and Lenzelle stops being a turnover machine--the Bucks will have a look at the Big Ten title and a top 3 seed. If not, it's a 5 seed and a Sweet 16 ceiling.
Thompson's touch be smooth like BUTTA!!!
He's playing really good today; stroking the jumper.
10-5 fouls against us so far this second half
that shot by smith was freaking awesome... haha. kind rim for sure
Jesus, Lenzelle takes some terrible shots. Multiple times today he has passed up open threes to take a dribble and take a contested long two-point jumper, a.k.a. The Worst Shot in Basketball.
Does he shoot a higher % from 3pt than he does on 2pt jumpers? I feel like he does.
oomph..... ugly free throw attempt
I don't like this trend of letting teams back in the game.

Thomas might not hit double digits??
If we could ever not turn it over in the last 4 minutes that would be great.
Still would prefer the coaches playing our best ball handler when we know a press is coming. I know they are worried about Scott's FT shooting, but good lord.
Defense up and no fouls!
good rebound lzelle
I hate it when they pull up on the break to run the clock; keep fricken attacking.
That's called controlling the pace of the game. You do it when you have a sizable lead to kill the clock.
Ahh the Dan dakich index.
I like football
The fat lady is warming up!
a win is a win. Hard fought, nice play, so confidence built up for some second and third option scorers.... Just a solid stepping stone... Can't wait for tuesday now
TTUN hasn't beat anyone this year. NC ST is ok, Minny is decent but both teams are struggling at the moment. Our five point loss @Duke is better than any of scUMs wins. I predict they lose this Sunday and give up the #1 ranking after having it for a week.
Well I spoke too soon. Looks like ttun is running away with it @ill. Oh well they haven't beaten us!...yet
