Let's come out with a sense of urgency. End this game early and not be another West Bracket victim.

topher3003's picture

Alright Buckeyes, let's do this. Gotta stay focused to survive in the wild, wild West.

The West is blowing up my bracket. Had Wisconsin/tOSU in the regional championship.

Amazing stat from the afternoon games: two of the winning teams--the WINNING teams--scored only 3 baskets each in the second half.

Dr. No!!!!
Love it.

millertime2011's picture

So does this picture mean Matta's suiting up and going to be the leading scorer?

Jason Priestas's picture

We'll be happy if he turns in a solid coaching performance. Matta love was also long overdue.

Anybody notice how CBS keeps putting Jared Sullinger in their Ohio State montages?

Go Bucks! The road out of the West is getting a lot easier by the hour.

Oh, awesome... I missed that article and thanks.  Go Bucks!

No problem, neat cause.  I just wish more football coaches would do the opposite and wear suits.

Keep working it inside to Thomas if they are running zone or man.

jeremytwoface's picture

MoMo guarding Thomas??? WTF

The first man gets the ((((Oyster)))), the second man gets the shell.

Nice Slam! Amir sends it to the second row!

ILbuckeyes's picture

I love DT but he has been forcing it too much lately

brandonbauer87's picture

Couldn't agree more.

Jason Priestas's picture

I think he was tired down the stretch during B1G play. He should be a little more rested now, so hopefully he can shoot himself hot.

UrbanCulture's picture

DT tries to establish his dominance early in games and take jump shots. He need to let the game come to him and work inside out more.

rdubs's picture

Especially against a team like this where he will have both a huge talent and size advantage.

D. Anthony's picture

I hope today we continue our streak of wins against opposing coaches with flesh-tone mustaches.

D. Anthony

brandonbauer87's picture

I think Amir is going to have a heyday.  They don't really have a good big so he can play where he's most comfortable, off the ball.

argyle182021's picture

I don't know what games these hack writers who bash Craft watch, but he's incredible.
 
He already has three steals in this game.

Holy hell.  Great play by Craft!

brandonbauer87's picture

If Cait Craft is anything like Aaron I may have to break up my happy home.

THATS HOW YOU PLAY DEFENSE!!!!!!! Craft = consensus DPOY.. Oladipo who? They got that one wrong.

Wow Craft!!!!!

"I'm One Bad Buckeye, and I approve this message."

Squirrel Master's picture

Great Picture! Hey, I said it before, why does Matta take Amir out when he actually starts doing good things. Amir just had a nice block and a nice little put back. He is playing decent defense and Matta takes him out. 
but it does stick to my theory that Amir can give you a decent 5 minutes but if you push it then he starts to show those bad hands. I guess it has been a good idea to take him out early lately. 
they look good so far!

I saw a UFO once.......it told me to have a goodyear!

brandonbauer87's picture

Iona sets up really well for Amir.  I guess you could say they make an easy opponent for our best 9.

Squirrel Master's picture

True, I did say I expect Amir to look a little better because of the opponent not being a B1G team for once. Still, I think the 5 minutes and take him out rule does apply well.

rdubs's picture

Defense is the key to a top team not getting upset.  If you come out with intensity on the defensive end it just gets your game in the right mindset for not taking someone too lightly.

millertime2011's picture

Love how we're playing now. After no energy the first minute, we definitely picked it up a lot. Iona can score so we need to keep it up.

AngryWoody's picture

Man OSU looks so damn good. I know the competition isn't really the tops but still I'm really impressed. I think the best thing is that in spite of the fact that these guys are a two seed playing a 15 seed, these guys are playing like they're the 15 seed. They are playing hard and with a sense of urgency. Iona can score a lot of points but they're doing a great job on the defensive side of things. GO Bucks!

Our Honor Defend!

This is a big game for DT's confidence for the rest of the tourney

Kevbo714's picture

What a pretty jump shot from tank

Tom Crean listens to Nickelback...

argyle182021's picture

I like that Scott is taking a few shots.  He isn't making them but if he can get into a scoring rhythm, watch out.

rdubs's picture

Yeah, if he can start hitting that mid range shot from the elbow, he will go from really good to great in a hurry.

Squirrel Master's picture

I really don't like it when Scott thinks he can shoot the mid-range jumper. He needs to realize he sucks at it! Especially early in the shot clock!

Iona averages 81 points a game. Only 70 more to go.

rdubs's picture

Jones starting to get going, need less jump shots from the Bucks.  Go inside to DT!!

ZBuckeye's picture

I can't decide who I want to win ISU/ND. I'll be honest. Both teams concern me. Notre Dame has really good interior play, and that doesn't bode well for us, and Iowa State can shoot the shit out of the ball, which is always scary to go against in the tournament (they should of beat Kansas twice this year.) Would of been fine with any other 7/10 game, but for some reason, our next game really scares me.

Squirrel Master's picture

Gotta give that one to MOMO! Nice shot, no more though! MOMO shall not pass!

I guess it is good to also hold a team that averages 80 points to 33 at the half and not only that but buckeyes do make adjustments in the second half that could make that score stay well below that 80 mark!
Plus OSU could still make that 80 mark themselves! Maybe 90!

How many more years of these awful tournament performances before G'town has to make a coaching change?  They just showed a graphic, and since the '07 final four appearance they've gone out in the round of 64 almost every time.  Made the 32 once or twice.

Now everyone is going to talk about how Craft is inept on offense. I heard a bit from a commercial for The Sporting Life where Jokitch called Craft a "Offensively inept white guy". 
With 7 assists and 7 steals, Who cares!
