IP, I think with tip times 4pm and earlier, I should get my own square ... “KNar watching from Sweden”.

actionstanleyjackson's picture

Jackson is really a weak link defensively 

Stay golden, Ponyboy.

Knarcisi's picture

He gambled and didn’t pay off on the open 3. Overall, not a very smart player for what you want in your point guard. 

Seattle Linga's picture

Washington is bringing it today

Go get'em Cal Poppy - we are behind you !!

It's not a rivalry .............. it's a wreckoning.

Knarcisi's picture

Like me some Duane Washington. 

Knarcisi's picture

Man, these guys can shoot. 

SoulPatrol32's picture

Washington has a beautiful jumper. 

Keep fighting CalPoppy

Seattle Linga's picture

Ring it up for Wash

Go get'em Cal Poppy - we are behind you !!

It's not a rivalry .............. it's a wreckoning.

Knarcisi's picture

Washington is the shooter we’ve needed in this program for a long time. 

SoulPatrol32's picture

Agreed, he’s going to be a good one. 

Keep fighting CalPoppy

Knarcisi's picture

He’s already pretty good. Lots of camparisons to Diebler but do you remember how bad Diebler was his freshman year?

SoulPatrol32's picture

Yeah he was bad. Wash doesn’t have the size of Diebler but has a great pump fake already and the edge in athleticism. 

Keep fighting CalPoppy

DroneBuck's picture

Diebler was a gym rat. Gritty player, smart kid, son of a coach, a real hustle and effort guy. 

Did I miss any?

keith7456's picture

Kaleb Wesson has improved so much since last year.

keith7456's picture

Still think the biggest liability on this team is CJ Jackson. He is so jekyll and hyde.

Buckeye Chuck's picture

Holtmann is going to have his work cut out finding 5 guys who want to play defense today.

actionstanleyjackson's picture

What a terrible close out to the half. Up about ten and then just stopped playing all together. 

Stay golden, Ponyboy.

WezBuck28's picture

Bucknell on fire behind the arc..damn..

Knarcisi's picture

This Bucknell team is solid. 

Buckeye Chuck's picture

Bucknell was blown out at home by Northeastern. 

This is the worst 5-minute stretch of the Holtmann era right here. Just utter laziness on both ends of the court.

The most "loud mouth, disrespect" poster on 11W.

Knarcisi's picture

Gotta close out on these guys or it’s gonna be a long night. 

BuckeyeRealist13's picture

Let’s go Bucks!!

You want a whore, buy one. You want a queen, earn her.

actionstanleyjackson's picture

Jackson is just a liability. He has been an absolute no show for most of this year. 

Stay golden, Ponyboy.

keith7456's picture

100% agree. Worst shooter on the team....takes the most shots.

39% shooter....just not good.

ibuck's picture

Disagree. Are you dumping on him because he doesn't meet your expectations?

Our honor defend, so we'll fight to the end !

actionstanleyjackson's picture

No. I am dumping on him because of what I see. Poor shooting, blows defensive assignments and a lot of game this season has been a non factor.

Stay golden, Ponyboy.

Knarcisi's picture

He’s not a very smart basketball player. 

actionstanleyjackson's picture

The turnover on the lazy pass to Mohamed.. the risky steal attempt that led to him overrunning it and then an open three .

Stay golden, Ponyboy.

The Rill Dill's picture

I think CJ found the bench, again.

Knarcisi's picture

Glad Holtmann continues to be willing to do so. He is not a smart basketball player. And we have other guys that can play. 

BuckWylde's picture

How the heck do they keep misplacing the bench?!!--LOL!

All progress has resulted from people who took unpopular positions. -Adlai Stevenson, governor, US ambassador

Cooper's picture

Pretty pathetic defensive effort.

This is definitely where I parked my car.

ibuck's picture

Buckeye D needs to be a whole lot better. Last 4 minutes awful, including rebounding.

Turnovers high too.

Our honor defend, so we'll fight to the end !

Louie1131's picture

Take away the 80% from 3, very different story.

I wish the real world would just stop hassling me...

Knarcisi's picture

Actually only 53%.  It only seems like 80. 

Buxki84's picture

Bucknell 15-0 run. We've got to continue to pound it inside and beat them on the boards, but not get beat in transition. Get Woods more involved. But obviously have to clamp down on their 3 pt shooters. Need to make their guards earn it.

I'd rather be a minute early than an hour early, 'cause I like to procrastinate.

actionstanleyjackson's picture

Last five minutes just zero effort at all especially on defense. 

Nine 3 pointers for Bucknell and most of those were wide open. 57 percent from three. Just can’t happen against a team that their only chance to win is to make volumne threes 

Stay golden, Ponyboy.

IronPastor's picture

I bet the Halftime discussion was fun....need to come out firing in the second half

GEAUX BUCKEYES

ibuck's picture

Thanks for the thread and Bingo, IP.

Our honor defend, so we'll fight to the end !

Knarcisi's picture

We’ve had a double digit lead so you can X that box.  Yeah, it doesn’t feel like it. 

IronPastor's picture

I already fixed it although I didnt want to because we gave up 15 straight

GEAUX BUCKEYES

Knarcisi's picture

Yep, leave it blank on principle. 

Urban_Can_Recruit's picture

Fire Thad and pull Lyle’s scholarship!!!

Yes I’m intentionally being dumb 

actionstanleyjackson's picture

Offense isn’t really the problem. It is turnovers and just no effort on defense.

Stay golden, Ponyboy.

Mantis's picture

Absolutely pitiful way to close a half.  Why was Woods not in there when they started going on the run?  He is someone that always comes in and calms the team down.  If the group out there isn't getting it done, change it!

How many games in a row does Jackson need to play like crap before he gets benched?  

actionstanleyjackson's picture

Same thing happened vs Illinois and Minnesota. Osu just stopped playing the last few minutes of the first half and let both teams make a run. It is become a habit.

Stay golden, Ponyboy.

Buxki84's picture

Bucknell 9/17 from 3 and only 3 turnovers. Those numbers have to change.

I'd rather be a minute early than an hour early, 'cause I like to procrastinate.

Seattle Linga's picture

Come on guys where yat defense

Go get'em Cal Poppy - we are behind you !!

It's not a rivalry .............. it's a wreckoning.

actionstanleyjackson's picture

Second half start just the same as the end of the first half

Stay golden, Ponyboy.

actionstanleyjackson's picture

Man. Officials are just horse shit as usual 

Stay golden, Ponyboy.

Nutinpa's picture

Team is flat. Next 5 minutes will determine if this is a L. 

TheSpiteHouse's picture

Getting jobbed by the refs at home against Bucknell.

seems legit

Buckeye Chuck's picture

This is something I haven't had to say much post-Matta, but the difference in the movement away from the ball for both teams is really telling.

Buckeyes too tentative on offense. Have to be willing to shoot.

I'd rather be a minute early than an hour early, 'cause I like to procrastinate.

Each and every possession

Go get'em Cal Poppy - we are behind you !!

It's not a rivalry .............. it's a wreckoning.

Knarcisi's picture

You’d better make that shot, CJ. 

InUrbanWeTrust34's picture

I got to watch the first 16 minutes of the game while at lunch... Just having time to pull up the score... What on God's green earth happened?  We were up 12!

Knarcisi's picture

Didn’t close out, Bucknell couldn’t miss, and horse shit sloppy offense. 

InUrbanWeTrust34's picture

Yeah... Bucknell could do one thing when I was watching... SHOOT.  Don't leave shooters.

Barfolomew's picture

Did he say cracked 3 teeth?

actionstanleyjackson's picture

Just unreal how one sided this is with the calls 

Stay golden, Ponyboy.

That was a travel

C'mon boys.... Watching the GameCast on the work PC... Need to finish strong.

ibuck's picture

CJ has 7 points, 5 rebounds and 5 assists. 

Meanwhile, the Wessons have 5 of OSU's 10 turnovers and 5 fouls.

Our honor defend, so we'll fight to the end !

Contributions from many players. Still need to cut down on TO's.

There are two people in the Huntington Club better be on their feet.  Ticked I couldn't get off so gave my tickets away to some friends.

Knarcisi's picture

Andre needs to stop shooting today. 

Knarcisi's picture

Has Washington been in the 2nd half?

Buxki84's picture

He is in now.

I'd rather be a minute early than an hour early, 'cause I like to procrastinate.

Bucknell in the 1 and 1. Only 3 fouls on Bucknell.

I'd rather be a minute early than an hour early, 'cause I like to procrastinate.

Stupid GameCast on ESPN is glitching the last update I got was 58-52 Buckeyes but then it appeared the last basket never happened.... Score and time anyone?

60 - 56 Buckeyes 9:30 left

InUrbanWeTrust34's picture

Thanks for the link... Doing that now. Although... I kind of enjoy following along in ElevenWarriors with my fellow peeps.  Will them to victory... That layoff coupled with some sloppy defense has this closer than I would like.

kareemabduljacobb's picture

Come on fellas. These guys lost to a 2-8 Fairfield and gave up almost 100 to Northeastern? In a 20 pt loss.

Refs calling nothing on bucknell and everything and then some on osu 

Stay golden, Ponyboy.

He didn’t even hit him 

Stay golden, Ponyboy.

Cooper's picture

What a flop.

This is definitely where I parked my car.

faux_maestro's picture

That's a wrap. Give that guy the Oscar.

They're all chickens. The rooster has sex with all of them.

InUrbanWeTrust34's picture

I am not able to watch, but I find it hard to believe that Bucknell is playing sound defense and we are the ones committing fouls at an alarming rate... We have a pretty decent sample size of the Buckeyes and defensively there aren't many who play more sound on that side of the ball. Especially on the perimeter.

Seattle Linga's picture

They hit many of their open jumpers in the first half. Not so much in the 2nd

Go get'em Cal Poppy - we are behind you !!

Buckeyes need a hoop.

Wesson gets tripped and fallen on and loses three teeth and no call. 

But yet osu gets called for a foul with a guy that flopped and wasn’t touched 

Stay golden, Ponyboy.

Knarcisi's picture

Flops need to be a technical foul. 

actionstanleyjackson's picture

Yes. NHL gives you a penalty for that crap 

Stay golden, Ponyboy.

faux_maestro's picture

Agree. Need to take a stand and get rid of that BS.

OSU 1 of last 8 FG.

Bucknell will make the tournament and give a very high seed a ton of fits in round one 

Stay golden, Ponyboy.

They have losses to Fairfield and Northeastern. They aren't very good.

Luther extends the lead to 10 with 5:35 to go

Go get'em Cal Poppy - we are behind you !!

It's not a rivalry .............. it's a wreckoning.

HoosierBuck's picture

WHY is it that the Bucks play down to teams they should beat handily? Basketballers get 8-10 pt. lead and poor passing and poor shot selection (turn around jumpers??) and the team lose the leads both halves.  Their 3pt defense with a couple mins. left in regulation MADE the game close!  (AGAIN!)    Straighten them out COACH!

InUrbanWeTrust34's picture

Luther is becoming one of my favorite Buckeyes.. I love the way he competes.

ibuck's picture

K Wesson 9 rebounds, CJ 8.

Outstanding for a PG.

Our honor defend, so we'll fight to the end !

Knarcisi's picture

Got a bit chilly, eh Bucknell?

ibuck's picture

Buckeyes playing better D this half. Bison were shooting over 50% in 1st on both FG and 3FG.

Now whole-game stats show 40% FG and 37% 3FG.  One of 10 treys 2nd half.

Our honor defend, so we'll fight to the end !

Seattle Linga's picture

Get ready for Bucknell to start jacking threes

Go get'em Cal Poppy - we are behind you !!

Andre Wesson loses three teeth.....ouch.

#POPPYSTRONG

98sb715's picture

This didn't look good early in the 2nd half. Great adjustments defensively. Stopped giving up open 3s. 

Knarcisi's picture

Last 3 possessions have been complete shit. 

actionstanleyjackson's picture

They have been just trying to run out the clock instead of playing offense

Stay golden, Ponyboy.

ibuck's picture

An OSU score would be good now.

Our honor defend, so we'll fight to the end !

Seattle Linga's picture

Needs these now

Go get'em Cal Poppy - we are behind you !!

Jimmy Sotos scored too easily.

Let's make some foul shots Bucks

ibuck's picture

C'mon Buckeyes! 

You can do it.

Our honor defend, so we'll fight to the end !

actionstanleyjackson's picture

Osu has a real issue closing out halves and games 

Stay golden, Ponyboy.

Knarcisi's picture

We were playing like we had a 20 pt lead. Not 8-10. 

Knarcisi's picture

This is on you, Holtmann. Shit, lazy possessions from 5 minutes in. 

Seattle Linga's picture

Better find a way to D up 

Go get'em Cal Poppy - we are behind you !!

It's not a rivalry .............. it's a wreckoning.

Just an embarrassing effort today. 

Stay golden, Ponyboy.

Crap. Sloppy ball handling.

I'd rather be a minute early than an hour early, 'cause I like to procrastinate.

Leads can disappear in a hurry when you don't make free throws and you confuse "not being overaggressive" with "let's just let the other team score."

Stay golden, Ponyboy.

ibuck's picture

OSU fortunate to win.

Our honor defend, so we'll fight to the end !

Knarcisi's picture

I think I want us to lose so this shit never happens again. 

Urban_Can_Recruit's picture

If you want them to lose, then you’re not a very smart person 

Knarcisi's picture

I’ll take a loss so this shit doesn’t happen again. Ridiculous the laziness and lack of effort that caused that comeback. We got away with it. And shouldn’t have. 

Urban_Can_Recruit's picture

But a loss doesn’t guarantee it won’t happen again. I’ll take a close win where it might open their eyes and you still win.

Knarcisi's picture

You blow a game like that, you’ll never forget it. 

98sb715's picture

luckily they completely messed it up

Mantis's picture

That was the ugliest win I've ever seen.  Buckeyes completely stopped playing the last few minutes, as if the game was over with an 8 point lead.  Bucknell never stopped playing.  Bucknell deserved to win that game.  Holtmann better be all over this team for their inconsistent effort all game.  

actionstanleyjackson's picture

Lucky today. Poor effort. A lot of teaching points for the coaches. Can’t half ass your way through games 

Stay golden, Ponyboy.

98sb715's picture

still a good win. Bucknell are going to win a lot of games this year and are a probable tournament team

IronPastor's picture

Bingo and a win....close and tough, but good win.  Bucknell is a tournament team the last 2 years

GEAUX BUCKEYES

Buxki84's picture

Wow. Can't believe Sotos or MacKenzie didn't take that shot.

I'd rather be a minute early than an hour early, 'cause I like to procrastinate.

NorthPoleBuckeye's picture

Very poor effort by Ohio State by the offense, defense, and coaches. 

allbucksallthetime's picture

Sports in general and basketball in particular is about momentum.  Once it's lost it is very difficult to re-gain.  I struggle to understand how so many just believe that it's a lack of effort, especially after not playing for 10 days, and never take into consideration that the other team is also trying to win.  

It's always great to hang on and win a close game.  Go Bucks!    

HoosierBuck's picture

Personally I do not feel that effort was lacking by tOSU, it was just not concentrated enough which is more mental than physical imho.

Bucks need to have the killer instinct when the lead seems comfortable and the win seems "sure". No sloppy passing ever,no let up in D,no poor shot selection when victory "seems" sure.  Examples of poor shot selection were at least (2) TWO turn around jump shots taken from poor angles with 8-10 point leads and short time left in BOTH halves.

Get on them Coach H!  GO BUCKS!

allbucksallthetime's picture

Thanks for the reply.  The truth is that no one is at their best every day physically, mentally, or emotionally.   That's especially problematic for athletes who are visible to everyone.  The most important thing is to be resourceful enough to find a way to win when you are not at your best. 

The win today is, to me, a very good sign for the young Buckeyes.  Go Bucks!
