Well if this keeps up, I can start my Saturday errands a little early.....

Someone needs to pull LSJ aside and tell him to ONLY PASS going forward - he is AWFUL!

route4buckeye's picture

Hey you're back. Maybe you should turn off the TV like you did yesterday so we can win this game, Mr. Negative.

PhillyBuckeye27's picture

Yeah - I can't stay away.  I guess I enjoy the utter frustration that this years team has given me.....

I think we've missed more layups than they've missed overall shots.

Where's the Italian Stallion? It's time to turn up the defensive intensity a little earlier today.

Actually that is new. We usually have early lead, then give it up, then try to get it back.

AWalk3r1's picture

Need to put in ADV to keep them spread out a bit. and go zone on defense or something, they are losing there man. and closing out like crap.

countrybuckeye's picture

Here comes the pressure lineup

"Momma told me there would be days like this."

rarely do we make the shot when fouled

Jim Nance is like 60. What is he doing having a kid?!

we'd be a lock for a championship

Settled down some. Now, to narrow the margin a little more by the half.

chitown buckeye's picture

Gotta weather the storm! Keep it within 10pts. They will cool off...

"I'm having a heart attack!"

route4buckeye's picture

We have to push them off the 3 point line and force them to drive or post up.

countrybuckeye's picture

Which will irritate them to no end.  That would be my plan.  

"Momma told me there would be days like this."

KBonay's picture

Probability has to factor in soon on these 3's...

only down 10, plenty of time to mount a comeback

Hope both teams got that out of their system. The yellow guys couldn't miss

What the hell is going on with Shannon Scott? If he can get 12 that will be huge.

brandonbauer87's picture

They can't shoot this well all day. I feel good about where we're at. 

BuckeyeTennis91's picture

They wont likely shoot this well all game, the key is to keep it close and make shots and OSU is doing that. Hopefully TTUN cools off in the second half. I don't see how they don't.

¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Correct.  10pts.  Let's get it to single digits before the half.

Not quite sure if M can shoot any better

I am liking the flow of this game, they wont be making those shots in the second half it always evens out. and we are shooting well and rebounding well. we fell behind quick, but I am liking the way this team is playing today.

I was just thinking that. We may have just seen just how good this team can be. Unfortunately it had to come after some mistakes so we are still down at the half.

Josh P's picture

Shannon Scott has to get as many mins as possible this half.  I think the main lineup should be Craft, Scott, Thompson, Ross, Williams.  We need the length and athleticism the way they're spacing us on D, and Thad is out of his mind if Scott isn't out there 15+ minutes this half.

Yeah, let's let Craft take a 3 in that situation.

If we make them, we will be in the exact situation Michigan was in yesterday late.

Pretty amazing that this game comes down to a blatant missed box out.

Ick. This is hurting.

Buckeye Chuck's picture

I didn't like the officiating much today either -- and that's the first time all season IMO it's been a genuine factor against us -- but the bottom line is Michigan made plays in the clutch, and we didn't,

Craft is a phenomenal defender and a great face of the team, but he's been an offensive liability for years and chokes regularly in pressure situations. I wonder how much his graduation will really be a net detriment, all things considered. Guess we'll have to wait and see if the defense goes to pot next year.

If Q shot as much as LSJ we would win more games....

mrspray's picture

This is why Q has a high ceiling in the NBA - if he gets to play a game where he's got a little bit more of a green light to shoot, he could be putting up 20 every night this year...

topgun67's picture

still feel good going into dance.

Scott and Ross playing well.  that will help us.  

Craft is Craft.  just don't give him the ball at the end.  Smith needs to sit on bench more.   

i hope we get decent bracket.... go to sweet 16 .  not likely more than that

Q & LSJ combined 0-9 from 3.  When?  When will Thad sit LSJ for chucking up those shots?

Thing about today is Shannon Scott looked like an All American today folks,if he can gain confidence and maintain it in the dance like he did today then the elite 8 might be a reality rather then a wish or a hope. Honestly I was watching and wondering where that Shannon has been all damn year and without him today we lose by 15-20.

I just switched my favorite basketball player from Craft to Scott. He should not have taken that shot- we all know it. Smith was open but Craft decided to take it.

If Scott plays like that, you betcha.

Didn't Smith get to take that shot twice against PSU? We all know how that ended...

BHT's picture

True, but its better than Craft shooting the ball. Though he gets some buzzer beaters, he always seems to miss most of them. Smith is more reliable. I would take Smith over Craft any day.

Also, its 3:58 PM CDT, and TTUN still sucks!

mrspray's picture

Good call - I feel like Craft has as many air balls from 3 as he does that actually go in. LSJ is better, but maybe not the best right now?

What seed will the Buckeyes get tomorrow?

kevdale86's picture

Probably the dreaded 5. There's always a couple 12 seeds beating 5's each year.

I hope it's not a # 5 seed.
