Loving played well today he hit the boards and was on the floor for loose balls,hit some big shots and his defense was fairly solid so give the man some credit for the positive,yes he traveled a couple of times but he was aggressive and the team fed off of his play.
Huge win this Buckeye team stepped up and made the big plays towards the end of the game. Lyle is one of the better players in the conference but sometimes he over thinks things but today he just had a flow and knew he could score, Tate, Loving and Thompson went all out and others like Williams and Jackson contributed when the team needed them the most. Great job by Matta and staff having this team prepared for a very good MSU team.
Coach Matta and his staff prepared this team well that was a great effort today by the whole team. Loving was aggressive on both ends of the floor sure he made some mistakes but he made things happen today.
You are 100% right Coach Matta called the refs out on that call and I do not understand why they didn't take a look how many times have you seen them stop and look to see if a 3 pointer was on the line and make a change,just unreal. I get the team was outrebounded and turned the ball over but they played hard in this one.
Coach Matta and his staff are doing great work with recruiting,the Buckeyes are heading in the right direction and I feel it only takes one of these 5 stars to say yes and it will open the door for more top talent. Go Bucks I will always support this program and see a lot of winning in the future.
Matta seems to have the train back on the track and I believe the players will buy into Jents intensity. I look for a good season 25 wins,competitive in the conference, NCAA Sweet 16. This team has depth at every position with the exception of point guard but Jackson will be a positive with his shooting ability.
Looks like some very nice offers and the type of players that would work very hard to return OSU to the top of the conference and good NCAA runs.
This is going to be a really good coaching staff and I believe it will show on the court this season I expect this team to play with a lot of heart and want to prove they are a quality team.
Matta and Jent are going to light a fire and challenge this team to produce I look for a more team oriented game offensively and defensively. If everyone steps it up this team could win 25 games and place top 4 in the Big 10.
OSU has the best coaching staff in the entire country I love this it will help keep the program on top.
The sky is the limit for Lyle he has shown the ability to score in different ways,his passing is solid areas of his game that may need work is ball handling and defense. I look for him to work hard this summer and get more control of his game he can be the go to guy in this offense.
Wesson really seems to be improving I think he can a solid center for the Buckeyes just has to keep working hard and getting better.
I am happy Thompson will be back he has the ability to become a double double threat if he can stay out of foul trouble,working with Oden will help tremendously. OSU has some nice depth at the center with Thompson,Bell,Funderburk and Potter and you will see Potter and Funderburk shooting 15 ft shots and even some 3s this team should be much improved and fun to watch.
Giddens was given every opportunity to play and improve at OSU his problem was he could not stay out of foul trouble long enough to get into a flow of the game,he has talent but has to work on his hands and shooting touch. It would have been nice if he dedicated himself to the program and gave it one more year instead of going to Bama and sitting out an entire season.
I love giving Ohio kids a shot at OSU a lot of kids grow up wanting to be a Buckeye and will work hard and show pride in wearing the uniform,Go Bucks keep up the good work!
Seems to be a good kid with the right attitude I can't wait to see him in a Buckeye uniform.
This is a great hire I love Jents fire and passion for the game it will rub off on the players in the program and get recruits excited about Ohio State basketball.
Sounds like a great crop of talent I hope OSU can pull in a few and put the Buckeyes back in the top 10, Go Buckeyes I am a fan win or lose but it is nice to be the big dog.
Jones has the talent and athletic ability to be a very good qb in the NFL I personally feel he is much better than Hackenburg and really is Winston considered a high IQ guy in Tampa Bay?
OSU will have better team chemistry this season plus bringing in Jent will add intensity I am looking for a good season.
This is huge for OSU basketball I believe he will bring more intensity to the team and the players will respect him because he has been through the program and is an example of his hard work paying off.
This makes OSU better immediately because the defense will have to honor Jacksons offensive game and that will open up for Lyle, Loving and the others. I am excited to see Potter and Funderburk they seem to be bigs with good hands and the ability to score,Wesson also has a good upside the Buckeyes now have depth and should be much better this season.
Things are looking up for OSU yesterday and today has been very positive and it looks like this team is on the way back. I see at least 25 wins this season and this team will be fun to watch.
Were you on the same team as Jent and Steve Hall? That was fun to watch I believe Tom B even played some it was fun watching and playing against these guys back in the day.
Jent loves OSU and I believe in a couple years he will be a fine head coach and very good recruiter he will bring a passion to this team,he is an honest guy and was a good student he will be able to sit in a living room and sell the program from experience.
