get a convincing W if we want to keep NCAA hopes alive.
If they win, they're in (at least the First Four). A convincing win, or a close win and hanging with MSU would likely get them off the First Four (and perhaps a dreaded matchup against NCSU).
Maybe, but it also depends how all the other conference tourneys go. A low-seed getting hot and snagging an auto-bid (like Saint Marys already did) could doom us even with a win. But we've gotta focus on what we can control right now, and that's beating IU.
Come on Buckeyes!! Fight like we know you can.
Go Bucks! Beat Indiana!
That's a Buckeye touchdown!
Stuck at work, will be following this thread. Does BTN stream online?
I believe you can download the BTN Go app if you have a subscription
LUUU..hit your shots today! Low turnovers & no early foul trouble is gonna be needed.
Looks like Jallow starts...
Stay golden, Ponyboy.
Omg why ???
I do not get this at all.
I don't buy one goddam drop of gas in the state of Michigan!
Lets Go Bucks!!!! Bring the energy!
I'd rather be a minute early than an hour early, 'cause I like to procrastinate.
I see Bo Boroski. Down a shot!
Dadgummit, I want a BINGO today!
I am not very smart, but I recognize that I'm not very smart. --- W.W. Hayes
Andre Wesson is just so nonchalant
"OSU makes 2 FT in a row."
Take good shots boys
Didn't IU have an air ball? Thought they missed the rim completely and it bounced off the backboard
Can someone please box out Morgan?
Not bad after an 0-4 start from the floor.
Good to the break! Keep the ball away from Langford!
Izzo would foul out 5 guys with these officials.
Bo knows fouls.
Wesson for 3!!!
"Wesson for 3."
I'm here so let's get this win!
Sloppy. 3 straight shots on the rim missed
Kyle Young has come in and set 2 big screens
How could the committee watch this game and put either team in?
Young was shooting
"IU air ball." I think.
Need Ahrens or Washington to be effective today.
On the floor?
Are these really two NCAA tournament teams? My eye test says no but I’ll take it as a Buckeye fan.
This team just junks up 3s and are so bad from that area. They just don't stop
3-14 from the floor, with the lead.
How in the world was that a foul on the floor? You can't get any more in the act of shooting than that...
The same way the entry pass to Kaleb was a charge instead of a foul on one of the two Hoosier players mauling his arms...
My thoughts exactly IP!
Urban Meyer, undefeated (7-0) VS ttun | Ryan Day, undefeated (2-0) vs ttun
*As always, In (Urban) Ryan Day I Trust! There is a plan, even if we cannot see it right now!
God, Family, Guns, Country, and Sports!
C'mon, Shooty Hoops Bucks! Take the lid off that basket!
Take the lid off that basket!
C'mon, Bucks. Smash that lid with a dunk!
Our honor defend, so we'll fight to the end !
Back to being a turnover machine
Stop turning the ball over
Big Ten officiating is utter BS. Just terrible
No foul there on Young. He moved and gave ground to avoid the foul.
Here come the zebras
Lu looks like he came to play today!
Kaleb's coming out determined today. As he should. He owes the team a great game.
*3 great games
Not sure what is worse...the commentators, the refs or OSU's offense
Great find by Woods.
The other Wesson for 3!!!
Andre looking good there with a steal and a 3
He knew where the ball was going and he didn't just stand there.
Great pass! What the heck happened to Jackson?
Elbowed in the nose...no call of course
Get tuned in and catch a bloody nose...
Rub some dirt on it, CJ...let's go Buckeyes.
Got M...igan gossip? Bang it here.
So Jackson takes an arm to the nose, blood gushing and no foul. Yeah, that makes sense
When there's blood, you gotta call the foul.
Lu and Kaleb looking real determined today. Great to see
"Wesson has his way."
Where do these smaller conferences find their referees? Because the smaller conferences don’t feel like the referees need to get their “tv time” by blowing the whistle every trip down the floor like the B1G
Edit: or not blowing the whistle when an actual foul does happen
Wonder if the officials will check the monitor during the break about the CJ elbow
Good decisions in transitions indeed..
Tell 'em, coach.
Anytime IU drives to the hope the refs automatically call a foul.
Woods brought the hustle today.
Wesson has three guys hanging on him and they don't call. Bo Boroski is a POS
These refs are blind
ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME
OMG. They called a foul on a routine box out.
These officials are terrible
Are these seriously the best officials the Big Ten can find?? These guys are jokes!
Oh yeah go review this but not the elbow
Reading the play by play - 4 fouls on us in a minute?
WOW... The officiating is garbage!
These two commentators are so pro IU. They aren't even trying to hide it.
I hate the "hook and hold" rule, because both players can be holding...if you drag someone to the ground, I understand, but just a simple box out and such...come on
I can never tell who is holding who. Even after several replays.
Straight up outworked him and boxed him out and they call a foul. If the guy doesn't put his hands up there is no hook there is no hold. So easy to rig this as the other guy
How was there no foul called when K. Wesson was under the hoop?
Hard to win 8 on 5
We will not get a fair shake from these officials. Nor the announcers
This is really a dumb rule. I just don't get it.
Our guys are getting baited to make those throws into Wesson, they are ready for it.
So Morgan can arm bar Wesson and get a steal? really?
Morgan is the handsiest big in the Big Ten.
I don't like that shot selection
IU been called for just 5 fouls. Again..anytime IU drives to the rim the foul is automatically called.
Woods finally delivering. Green light.
Young back in with 2 fouls. 2 fouls on Muhammad.
Young straight up pushed from behind
Finally called something on Davis. He cross checked Young at the other end, no call
One thing about the NCAA tournament, you never know what’s going to happen when B1G refs aren’t involved.
This is funny, but sad and true...
Nice power in by Young
ANDRE for 3
Offensive foul? Seriously?
That was fair I saw him swing his arm out and extend
Are the IU players made out of cardboard?
Did Woods push off?
That was fair I saw him swing his arm out and extend
Edit: Thanks, ITWASME!
Ticky tack BS
Class of 2010.
Thought they were going to pull away a bit...but refs going to make sure IU stays in the game
Just stay with #11 for IU and box out Morgan
I’m pretty sure we all can agree at least the fan that screams like a banshee during free throws isn’t at this tournament
We hit 30 in the first half!
They set a lot of moving picks
Green is on fire...need to keep him from catching the pass..put Washington or someone on him.
Swear to God Jackson refuses to play #11 close on the perimeter
#1 grabbed Washington's arm and pulled him...no call
That was a terrible no call...
Who is this team who knows how to run a fastbreak?
OFfense attacking, making some shots, getting out on the break.
Defense active, with the turnovers at least.
Like what I'm seeing so far.
And of course Muhammad did not get fouled on that breakout to Jackson. Just wow with these officials
Indiana turnovers are good.
This could be a double digit lead for OSU if it were called fairly. IU has been bailed out time and time again. That and #11 making everything
Thank you, Woods!
This is what we have been wanting Woods
Good close. Woods showing up.
Woods feeling it! Nice half Buckeyes!
Edit: Also credit to Holtmann for clearly drawing that last play up to ISO him
KEY to close out the half. Nice first half!
Woods having a great game!!! Nice shot to end the half!
Nice end to the half. I think we outscored ourselves from the last 2 game first halves combined.
Woods is easily the MVP so far. Hopefully some other guys pick up the slack.
"OSU > 70% FT shooting in a half."
Announcer had to look at his notes to remember Chris Holtmanns last name lol
Not watching but just checked the box and only 1 minute in the first half for Ahrens? Can't complain with the lead, but that seems odd.
Andre Wesson's actually played well. Don't need to take him out (yet)
Thanks, hope Andre keeps rolling. Woods sounds like he is killing too.
Score??? and how much time left?? I'm at work.......thanks!
