Love to see the Buckeyes pursuing so many good players in my opinion this team is currently fairly talented and adding good pieces around it will bring alot of winning to Ohio State.
Less turnovers and making free throws was huge in the 2nd half and you have to appreciate getting a good contribution out of the center spot. Go Bucks beat Rutgers and keep working hard in practice.
Not a perfect game by any means but I did see a gut check in the 2nd half. Starters played descent and with TT contributing in the middle it made alot of difference. Go Bucks keep it rolling with Rutgers up next it gives this team a chance to get better for the meat of the schedule.
Welcome to the Buckeyes,Meyer is really filling in the roster nicely!
I don't want scUM to win a single game I hate them and don't buy into the theory we need them to be good,OSU does just fine with blue struggling and still thinking they are good. I so cant wait for OSU to have the most wins head to head and I believe it is going to happen!
Loving or Bates-Diop has to go to the bench for a game or 2 in my opinion this team can not afford to get nothing out of their starters and expect to win.
I know this is a road game but it was winnable the Bucks got nothing out of their starters 2nite but Lyle and Williams carried this team on their backs. I would not mind seeing a lineup change for the next game maybe start Lyle, Harris,Williams,Thompson and Loving possible getting energy off the bench from Tate and maybe it would fire up Bates-Diop sure I know it may not be the idea lineup but it may give the team a little more scoring. Wisconsin hit every big shot I tip my cap to them.
Freaking awesome,how do you like that Hairball?
I almost nailed that score by I certainly did not have ot in mind when I made the prediction.
Yeah it is awful having a point guard that had 13 assist in a game and a triple double in another,if Lyle does not get in a rush he is a good point guard yes he has had games with multiple turnovers but he has also had games with minimal mistakes OSU is going to have to use him at the point due to his size and ability he has a chance to be another E.T. just let him gain some experience this season.
This is a game the Buckeyes should win on the road I am going to go with Lyle being the key in this one he is capable of putting this team on his back that can come from scoring or assist so look for a double double and just missing the triple in a solid effort. Bucks win this game in a close one 68-62.
Way to make me look like I know what I am talking about Bates-Diop but this is the kind of effort he must bring every game I see no reason he cant average 15 a game.
OSU bigs are fairly solid on defense the problem I see is sometimes they get over aggressive and try to block shots when they are out of position which often puts them in early foul trouble the way to fix it is if all the players take a little bit more responsibility and not let their man drive to the hoop so easily. In time this team will grow and know when to switch and when to double and not give up easy uncontested 3s and layups and create overall team defense to keep the bigs on the floor.
I am hoping to get Bates-Diop back on track he is very talented and has the ability to hit the long ball or take it to the hoop I believe he is the key to turning things around for this team. OSU has to limit turnovers and not force shots I think this evening will be a Buckeye victory in a tight contest. Go Bucks protect your home court!
He certainly has been up and down this season but overall he is showing more toughness this season than last by showing a willingness to go to the basket,at times he seems to get frustrated if a call does not go his way just hoping he realizes you have to continue to play. I believe Lyle being more assertive is a good thing as it will help Bates-Diop and Loving as they do not appear to want to be the go to guy but both are very capable scorers if they play aggressive. Go Bucks I will be watching win or lose time to steal one on the road.
This kid could be our version of Frank the Tank and he was a nightmare to try and match up with because he could step out and drill the long ball and was solid inside.
If this team gives full effort on both ends of the floor they can beat Purdue in order for that to happen limit turnovers,keep our big men on the floor,make free throws. Honestly if OSU gets down 10 points they seem to start second guessing themselves but all they have to do is keep giving full effort and good things will happen just like it did against Kentucky.
Find a spot for this kid at OSU he will have a fire like no other when they play the little blue boys!
I think this is a good move it will get them in shape and some of the best recievers ran track at some point in their careers.
Thank you Coach Beck for your valuable recruiting efforts it is appreciated keep up the good work!
Yes he is a Buckeye from Convoy,Ohio Crestview schools he could make a shot from anywhere on the floor and his passing was unbelievable,after OSU he played some pro ball overseas and did some high school coaching but I have lost track of where he is at this point in his life. Great guy and competitor for sure.
Maybe just an addition to this staff would help maybe give Doug Etzler a call he would make a great shooting coach and would help the guards tremendously his basketball IQ is head and shoulders above nearly anyone I have ever been around.
Thank you for clearing that up!
I have no clue what is going on with this team but clearly Matta is not getting full effort that was just terrible heartless basketball I am not even sure you can say they are going through the motions. Mitchell did not see the floor today if he was not sick or injured he must be in the dog house. We have to find a way to get big #4 involved in the game plan. I have been around basketball my entire life and do not have all the answers but Matta is going to have to do a little soul searching and find out who wants to play hard on both ends of the floor and he may possibly have to adjust his starters to make a point. All is not lost at 4-2 but this team needs a road win in the worst way to get some confidence back. I will watch every game win or lose and support this team until the end,Go Bucks!
Staying all night just seems a little weird and extreme to me and can you imagine if a kid made an allegation what it would do to their university.
