The rhino saw what he did to the elephant in the sugar bowl.
You have to give Purdue some credit for that 1st half deficit. They made like six 3s. We had the guts to fight back and this team may finally have learned what it takes.
Still watching it. D'Angelo is a hell of a class kid. Man would I love to see him come back next year so he can continue spending time with his Buckeye family while staying close to his dad and 4 brothers.
Purdue's outside shooting needs to come back to earth in 2nd half. C'mon Bucks.
This was pitiful. Thad deserves the loss for having Amir on the floor.
The basketball season is very long so a team is going to have ups and downs. But today is a new day, and to a man, each player needs to show his grit on every play and every possession from this moment forward. No heads dropping after a bad call, no feeling sorry for yourself after a missed shot. It's simple...time to ball.
I hear Uma Thurman saying "Vincent Vega"
Free throws are the equivalent of special teams plays in football. Thad needs to re-prioritize this aspect of the game if our team is ever going to truly contend for a national title
Yup, hope KBD keeps working hard to get his minutes. We need both these guys to space the floor.
KBD needs to be on the floor 15-20 minutes a game. Fun to watch this team starting to hit on all cylinders. Go Bucks!

We have a two-time heisman winner that can fill in temporarily.
Anyone know the fax #? I'd like to send my letter.
Great game all around, especially loved the hustle from Lee. Loving plays with much better energy off the bench. When he has his legs, he's better on D and his shot is so true.
Like the lineup change. It was good to see Anthony Lee moving around in the low post and taking advantage of opportunities. Matta also did a better job of subbing in the first half which kept our energy up as we fought back.
Now, more Kam Williams please. His shot can stretch the defense and take some pressure off of D'Angelo.

I know I'd rather see KBD on the floor making freshman mistakes than a 6'11" senior making no effort.
Our guys were inspired by the football team and they played like it against Michigan. When we play that hard, we are a different team. Keep it up!
The presser was Ginn's idea based on Cardale's comments.
Good history...I think we owe TCU a little payback next year for that '57 game. Btw, is the girl wearing the 5 jersey in the pic the same girl that was featured during the OSU-Michigan basketball game?
Look forward to following this young man's coaching career. Good luck Trey!
This team is seriously lacking the mentality needed to win. We are completely unfocused in the first 5 minutes of games. Whatever we are doing pre-game in terms of warmup needs to change. When that ball tips, be ready to play. Period. BTW, which assistant coach is responsible for warm-ups?
The bigger threat is our foul shooting. We're now shooting .705% for the season from the line. Last year the Buckeyes shot .689% from the line, ranked 209th in Division 1. In 2011, we also shot .689% from the line, which ranked 146th in the country for that year. The best teams shoot .78 to .80%.
Whatever approach our coaches are taking to free throws isn't working. We are literally losing games at the line. Coach Matta, please don't settle for this.
So Meyer and Tress will be on the field Monday night. Wonder twin powers activate!
Hope we hit the ducks with that wheel route again.
