There's no points for second place, gentlemen.
Bingo. Don't care if it's 49-48.
Let's do this thing.
What we have currently available is what we have available.
We should have a double digit lead right now. Man this offense is maddening at times.
Fields of Dreams
Got to clean up our passes. The game will turn on turnovers if we don't.
I'd rather be a minute early than an hour early, 'cause I like to procrastinate.
Another 3-minute drought to end the half. Iowa State was pretty inept in the first half and we're just up 2. Not a great sign.
The most "loud mouth, disrespect" poster on 11W.
We had an inept first half with Kaleb on the bench. Shayok is their only contributor right now..stop him and who knows what happens
I agree! Just gotta get those shots to go down. Our D is holding great!
I’m not sure he can be stopped if he gets the ball from what I saw. It’s good (Jallow?) seriously limited his touches.
The saga continues, Buckeyes...Buckeyes here forever.
Got M...igan gossip? Bang it here.
Confidence level low. To keep them without a basketball for 12 minutes and only be up two does not bode well
Stay golden, Ponyboy.
OSU FT shooting was 75% in the first half.
Edit: Strike that.
I am not very smart, but I recognize that I'm not very smart. --- W.W. Hayes
We can't keep having these offensive droughts if we want to win this game
That's a Buckeye touchdown!
Another half of basketball where Osu doesn’t get out of the 20s...
Just so limited.
Neither did Iowa st and they score 80 a game.... chicken little
Yeah but I would trust their track record over Ohio State’s on offense.
20’s feels like an offensive onslaught compared to the teens we had in the first half of a couple games haha
Where is Ahrens? We should be up almost 20, ISU went 16 straight possessions without a score, and all we got out of it was a now 2 point lead. Thank goodness Keyshawn is finally being the scorer he was touted of being.
Successful people do what they have to, whether they feel like it or not
While it's possible that there is a physical reason that he's not in the game it may simply be that his defense doesn't match up in the game. One Frosh played Iowa State back into this game(Washington), not sure we can afford three playing big minutes this year.
This is a lot like our first game against IU. They're ice cold, we have a close lead at half. Just don't think we can shut them down the whole game.
We all appreciate Young's hustle but when he touches the ball its a disaster. Same with Muhammad, Jallow and Andre Wesson handling the ball. They just cant pass. And washington is trying to do to much tonite. Holtmann just has no answers till next year when Carton, Walker and Liddell will be playing instead of these guys. These players try hard but just have poor talent.
I'm thinking ISU makes an adjustment to close out hard on Washington in the 2nd half. Does OSU find another long distance option?
Washington is 1-5 from the field and 1-2 from the line, no rebounds and a number of TO's, he's hardly a terror this game. Frosh trying to do too much in the NCAA's, not the first or last to have that problem.
Wasn't able to watch the first half but was pleasantly surprised by the score. Hoping to see the buckeyes come out strong.
Our lead could be larger though. Iowa State went at least 10 minutes without a made field goal
Jeez some of y'all are clueless; we are doing a good job of covering the three point line. Yes stupid passes but we are in good shape and not in real foul trouble
The only hard day was yesterday
BRING IT IN FOR THE REAL THING.
Give Ahrens a shot...I remember when Jon Diebler his freshman year against North Carolina in preseason. Hes on fire calling for the ball at half court nailing on at least 5 feet beyond the arc..like 6 for 7 threes. The announcers were like who the hell is this guy? Hes the all time leader in three point shots made in Big Ten History..
32 seconds left - our ball on the inbound. Why did we not sub in our long range shooters?
I miss those talented teams...I love the Jimmy Jackson teams.. Chris Jent with the "Jent Juice" as we called it diving all over the floor with his hustle!!
Come on Action; give me a fucking break;
What are you talking about?
Maybe Action is his girlfriend's name.
Trolling as usual I see...
Just flipped over to the UNC - Iona game and UNC puts on a clinic with quick passing and great movement on offense. The Bucks get too caught up in getting trapped way outside the top of the 3-point line until their is like 5 seconds left on the shot clock. Maddening. But I still love them to death.
None of OSUs players would be playing for UNC. Its called talent and the Buckeyes have very little until next year.
Agreed. I think they’ve got a few decent pieces to add to major talent coming inbound.
Lers come out playing similar D and start working down low to K Wesson and we could push the lead. Just gotta get those long balls to fall...
A lot of negative nancies posting here.
Question: Why do you follow a team you really, really don't like?
Our honor defend, so we'll fight to the end !
This is really bad (negative) offensive basketball. To think otherwise is foolish. Everyone like s these guys but they are not very good. Its all right. You must be like a kindergarten teacher worried about feelings.
look like 2 sets of bottom feeders playing each other. bucks are hanging in there, but 2-11 shooting from 3pt will lead to a loss every time.
The pace of the game is what it is; all that matters is being one point ahead at the end of the game
Yep, you don't need style points to advance, just more points than the other team.
And negative vibes don't help anyone.
You go, Okie.
It looks like North Carolina just flipped on the switch.
Let's go boys.
I'm talking about you bitching that we are only in the 20's man
Sure thing man. Whatever you say. But a team that doesn’t score for 12 min and Osu only up two..will come back to haunt them that they had no offense
Since when does a coach just get to cry to the refs to look at the monitor???
We’re getting a hook & hold & 3 fouls on Kaleb.
Thank god im Wrong
Seriously? The coach can now step in an stop play asking for a review?
Have to give Ahrens credit, he supports his teammates, doesn't pout on the bench.
You are better then that ASJ
As are you.
Can the coaches call a review?
This is not the most thrilling game I have ever watched
A win can fix this
Did you catch Wisky today?
Partisan Iowa State crowd...
It was a lazy pass...I e. Ohio state
Kaleb gets fouled right in front of the official and no call...WOW
Clearly a foul. He just straight up slapped Kaleb in the arm!
Gun pointed at foot
Finger pulled trigger
He pulled that one out of his ass
Hey woods... it’s called boxing out.
Great. Now the officials feel like they need to call a bunch of makeup calls and no-calls because ISU keeps bitching about everything.
Tje ISU player took 2 huge steps after picking up his dribble then shot..ala mano Ginobili
.I mean. That's an obvious travel
Weather the storm Bucks...no pun intended...
Was that like 7 steps?
Bucks need to feed Kaleb down low
Take Jallow out!! All he does is throw it away!!
What are these passes I mean attempts at passes
Make the easy play Jallow
Jallow says nay.
Jallow come on dude
Jallow has to quit passing the ball like a grade school player.
Hope there are no kids watching this game...no fundamentals..no shit
Ok. I’m on board. Jallow can’t pass worth a shit. Lol.
Jallow... again. Dude can you just not touch it on offense. He’s an automatic turnover.
Ugh. These lazy passes are irritating.
Jallow busted it 90 feet to make sure to block that shot off a bad pass...I think he swatted it 30 rows up
Jallow's Jello passing.
Jallow can't be in this game. His passing is awful.
Respect from me that Jallow blocked the easy 2 after his stupid mistake.
Woods needs to quit passing open looks to give it to Jallow! Shoot!
Ugggh ok Jallow while his d is good, too much of a liability on o
Yeah, Jallow has played good defense, hit a timely three but his passing has been legitimately poor.
Touch crowd, playing tough defense on their superstar and one bad pass...…………………...
That’s Jallow’s fourth bad pass.
Must have missed the four TO's while typing.
1 bad pass? Lol.
and their ‘superstar’ is going absolutely nuts. Has almost all of their points.
If it was only just one.
Okay....the Vegas commercial was AWESOME!!!!
Jallow passing OMG. I see crisper passes at my niece’s jv girl basketball games.
Its pretty remarkable that as awful as we have been Iowa State is all in on one upping us
Holy needs to pull jallow
Jallow has blocked 2 shots off of his turnovers but I'd prefer he just had the blocks and no turnovers
Weather the storm, Bucks. Bend but don't break.
ASJ ;I'm with you man; but we are just lucky to be here dancing
I have no issues with the defense. Has been great. Just hope they can score enough to get it done.
Buckeyes can't have wasted trips down the court.
I guess they heard me.
I like with Ohio state plays with a little tempo on offense
Where has woods been all season?
Now that was a nice little spurt..but I guess Wesson decided not to box out
That was a 3 square Oop
These guys complain on every single fucking trip down the court about everything
Fuck you Iowa State
Tired of the traveling not being called
Shayok looks NBA-ready with all these travels.
Not a foul. Not a foul.
Would it kill us to ever extend on a lead?? Man!
That was not a foul on Jallow right there! Terrible call if they did call it.
That was a very late call
3 travels every damn time. Come on.
That whistle was like 3 seconds after the basket...
Woods needs to keep shooting!
Why did traveling no longer become against the rules?!
They need to go to KW in the post until Iowa State does something to stop him.
Did they seriously call the foul after the basket was made and the guy fell out of bounds? Thats way after the play...
Who's the best defender? Put him on Shayok.
Jallow has been doing great on him - dude just can’t be allowed to touch the ball.
Aaron craft...but I think hes out of eligibility.
That was an ISU timeout, not a foul, no?
Traveling man has half their points?
Bailed out there
Part of me hopes we lose this game just so I never have to watch CJ airball any more shots.
To be fair...the last one went off the rim.
I just said hes gotta have the record for most airballs in a career
Shooting too many three balls; work it down low
Where has this Keyshawn woods been all year
Who is this Keyshawn woods and what have you done to him?
Kyle Young....what kind of shot pressure was that?
Come on Young... that's the type of thing that can be a momentum shifter in a game...
Well that wasn’t ideal.
Nope, not ideal....
You stole my at work catch phrase.
What exactly are you doing
Dude, you're a 6'8" slow, none jumper, you are not going to block that shot.
Haha dude probably has the best hops on our team. U really have a poor lens
I mean he doesn’t have the best on the team (I’m gonna say Jallow has crazy hops), but when healthy Young does have some good ups.
Did you just see those hops on that lay in that he ate, perhaps he can jump but just choses not to bother?
I thought we were going to go on a run. But a 4 point play will squash that.
Kyle Young fucking sucks! Why was he ranked so high as a recruit??
I love his hustle but how does a guy get a D1 scholarship when you cannot shoot anything outside of a dunk and you are not 7'?
I don't buy one goddam drop of gas in the state of Michigan!
Anyone notice that Woods is being ultra careful on the defensive end to not challenge shots, rebounds etc and get dumb fouls?
That may be the worst play I've ever seen. Might as well have just clothes-lined the shooter, Young.
For as much as we’ve complained about officials this year, it’s refreshing to see a crew that lets them play.
Just could be a huge swing there. A four point play
Is it just me or are there a ton of commercials?
No. There's a little bit of basketball interupting our commercials.
Just when I think Ohio State is turn the corner something like that happens
Other than Kaleb none of our guys could start in the MAC
How dumb is this team? They play hard, are fairly talented, but the constant mental mistakes are unbelievable. The announcer nailed it earlier, fundamentals are gone in this game
KW having a P A R T Y
That was a prayer shot.
Was afraid they werent going to call the death by 100 hacks
I guess it takes four guys hanging on Wesson to get a call
Grind, big brah.
Wesson unstoppable inside....
Iowa state literally has two guys that score for them
Better than our 1
Shayok is unreal...he cannot miss...even when he travels
Way to go strong to the hoop....
Shayok is pretty good
Jackson hasn't even gotten CLOSE to making a shot, but he just keeps chucking them up!!
He's barely drawing iron
I should definitely have refreshed before makingy last post.
CJ is really struggling to find the bucket tonight...
these past 4 years*
Keep pushing Bucks
cj Jackson is so awful at shooting the ball most games
How many wide open bricks from Jackson? And not even remotely close.
We got a game.
Man. How can a D1 guard miss so many shots so badly?
He reminds me so much of Fuss-Cheatham, super scrappy, a bit uncoordinated, and wholly unreliable.
This is the biggest game of the season and you are a SR with only 3 points 1-6 shooting? Unacceptable.
Under 8 and Wesson with only 2 fouls. Great
C’mon Jackson!! Hit some shots!
No, please just stop shooting. Everything he is putting up is not even remotely close to going in. Iowa State doesn't even have to guard him.
Wesson for 3. The old-fashioned way.
CJ Jackson Iowa State 6th Man right now
Wow...Kaleb got crushed on that rebound, but no call
He's too big to get any calls. Unfortunately, that's just how it works. If he did the exact same thing to a smaller guard? You know it's getting called every single time.
Over the back foul?
Osu needs to look for quick post play with Wesson as he gets posted. They need to play inside out
Next poll question, have you ever seen someone miss a shot as bad as CJ Jackson.....
The positive take, Jackson is due
Man, CJ’s jumper is barely drawing iron tonight.
Need to put Muhammad or Washington on the floor over Jackson. He's offering zero offense or defense right now.
So is it impossible for someone kalebs size to get a damn foul call. I mean Jesus. Gets mugged half of the time and gets NO calls. Holtmann needs to stand up for his player and get on the refs about it.
If only Jackson was playing even descent on the offensive end. Ugh.
Keep guarding the three point line; that's all they've got
Great coaching to keep this team in the game with what he has to work with, no question.
Lets go Bucks!
isu seems to have an entitled feel to them. Lets finish strong and send them home.
God > Family > Buckeyes football
Why these youngsters keep shooting threes is beyond me. I appreciate them holding a lead and I'm mildly optimistic about the game but I just cant understand the thought process when they are obviously not hitting those shots
This is some bullshit
Oh there we go... gets a ticky tac call in the other side. Cool.
They got 1 player why not double him
Getting punched in the head? 3rd foul
They literally have one guy and we keep leaving him.
Jallow decides to have a career night in the ncaas?!
Jallow playing hungry on offense! Love it!
Californian by birth, South Carolinian by the grace of God, Buckeye for life.
Halliburton took 3 steps without even dribbling on that finish? really?
Get Mohammed out. He is so lazy with his passes
Actually. Not at all unbelievable
Zero reason for Luther to be in the game.
That’s like the tenth time the Buckeyes have turned over that entry pass.
Where is Washington??
Caleb leading us to victory while Andre trying to help us lose it.
Who are Caleb and Andrew?
5 minutes to make a stand.
At this point why is Muhammad playing instead of Washington or Ahrens?
I like Luther, but - no. We can’t afford that.
How long is a non televised game?
I think Mohammed threw two passes tonight and they were both right to ISU.
Games too big for our frosh, deer in the headlights.
Ok crunch time here, Losing nerves
We got bailed out by them stepping out again. I don't know if I've ever seen that happen so much in one game.
Question: does a ref EVER call a travel on a breakaway dunk? Or are you allowed to take 4 steps for a cool dunk?
I've seen 5 steps taken in the NBA with no call. I'm convinced it's for the TV ratings/highlight reels.
Can we just run out the clock on this possession? Please
(Mostly) good things happen when KW touches
Chill with the 3s...play through the post
Another garbage pass
He has to get mugged 3 times to finally get the call..
He got hammered
Man, these refs are letting them get physical, have to say I like it better than the B1G refs.
That was a weak call on Wessons shot...but it makes up for the 12 other times he was mugged tonight with no call
Jesus what we have to do to get a foul
Good showing tonight. Make a couple baskets down the stretch and they might pull it out. Go Bucks!
Iowa State apparently has no idea what blocking out is.
Announcer has no idea that it takes 7 fouls for a 1 and 1
NIT made it 5 this year, I think.
Lets go BUCKS!
Caught a break. Ball really looked kicked from the other angle.
but I like how incredulous the Cyclones looked after mugging Kaleb
Kaleb way too soft defensively.
Ordered to be so, can't survive on offensive if he gets in foul trouble
Under 5 minutes left in a one posession game. 3 fouls. Have to do better than that.
Did they sub B1G refs in here??
Dammit we can’t buy a 3!!
We need to find a shooter...now
Soon they will be in the 1 and 1..shit. any bench at all this half?
Shayok pushed Kaleb away to a full arms length and nothing?? I am somewhat dumbfounded by the officiating tonight?
Over 20 minutes ago possibly with overtime.
Refs have been letting them play all night don’t start calling bullshit fouls now!
Agree, not the time for them to try and tighten up on the calls.
We’re gonna win this. Somehow, someway. We’ve played better.
4-19 from 3.
Just not our shot.
Now the crap foul calls begin. Hold onto your butts, these last few minutes could get rough. Also, all of these commercial timeouts are ridiculous
Really thought Kaleb was gonna nail that 3.
Gonna consider the foul on Andre a makeup call for the "kick"
K. Wesson Double-Double.
We need another 12 minute drought by Iowa state
Step up here, boys. No need to panic. Work the ball low. Let's get a tourney win!
Come on D!
When Jallow and Woods are like the second and third option that’s good for them but so very very bad for everyone besides Kaleb.
Guy never misses. Ridiculous
Gotta keep that skayok dude in check, hes hot right now.
Good hustle, MJ.
Cannot given 3 any space. Make him drive the ball
under 3 to go, come on Bucks!!!
Come on Bucks!!!!
Let's go buckeyes!
Such an easy put back. Ridiculous.
Come on Wesson. Box that guy out. He is half your weight
Bringin' the Woods!
HOW DO WE GIVE UP THAT OFFENSIVE REBOUND?? C’mon crunch time!!
Really tired of seeing 4 of our guys under the basket still get out-rebounded by just one guy cuz they're not boxing out.
Iowa State is a fundamentally awful team.
Shit. One time Wesson out of position and lard gets a gimmie put back
Andre wesson with the lazy no block out keeps ISU within 2 points.
to be fair...he gives up 3 inches to Lard.
Woods everything I said about you during the regular season, I take back!!!!!!
I just said these exact words. Been mad at him a good bit this season but I'm not complaining now.
Here we go!!! Finish strong bucks!!
Hang on, Sloopy!
You can see Woods wants it bad!!
Are ISU fans always whiny bitches?
Let's go Buckeyes
I love that the isu fans completely disregard the slap on kw's arm.
I thot that was a bad call - I missed the other hand I guess
Foul is on number 1, dumbass Iowa State fans
“A mind needs books like a sword needs a whetstone.” - Tyrion Lannister
Wow. Make these KW!
As we all know in a close game, Holtmann is gonna ride or die with his squad that is in. Let's do this thing boys.
Blood delays help Kaleb rest.
lol thanks for the shot MJ
That dumbass ISU fan asking where is the foul lmao
under 2 to play!! LETS GO BUCKS!!!!!
I know my heart will be broken tonight. I feel it.
WHAT KIND OF FUCKING SHOT IS THAT
Jackson is just simply a liability.
Call time. Draw up a play.
Nice defense! Finish this!
Smart TO, change out PG
Big possession here, NEED TO SCORE!!! under 1 to go
Come on Bucks...lets finish this!
COME ON BUCKEYES!
Holtmann needs to go Izzo on CJ.
We are going to win...wow!!
If CJ shoots the next one, well, let's just say he better try to use the glass!
I want the ball in woods or wesson’s Hands. Not Jackson
We can get this!!!!!!
Game over. Iowa State isn't good enough to overcome a 4 point lead with Kaleb still on the floor.
Told you. ISU is a shit team. 9-9 in the lousy Big 12.
Don't EVER say that
ISU played like crap the entire game. Their body language was awful, too. Nothing was going to change that in the last minute.
I fully expected a loss.
there is no logical reason why we win.
i am so happy!
It's 2018 and TTUN still sucks!!!
51 seconds left. Play smart, guys. No stupid mistakes that cost the game
As C.J. Jackson’s lawyer, I advise him to stop shooting.
but seriously, Kaleb, Woods and Jallow have really brought it.
Finish the damn game boys! Let's win this game!
I'm streaming the game so all the commercial breaks are just a still shot of the TBS logo. Wish I'd clocked how much time this has been up.
Not sure why we didn’t run any form of an offense that last possession. We need a bucket here to close the door. We make too many simple mistakes for this to be a done deal
Come on boys, hang tough.
Wow...that was a crazy 3...I wish we could hit that sometime?
I'd be happy if we could make a mid-range jumper.
Going to come down to in bounding, free throws and one defensive stand
On you, coach...let's close it
Of course. I can't handle this.
Here we go....
Dumb shots = right back in the shit
5% shot goes in. Dammit
GET THE BALL INBOUNDS PLEASE. These have killed us this year.
Hold on...terrible offensive possession there..now shose in the game that can make free throws?
We needed to score there, now no room for error, at all. Take it down, score, lets gets this W!!!!
Make fts and we win
Of course they make a 3 there.
What a game and game thread. Make your free throws please!
You can't just stop playing offense...
Good set coming out of that TO. Bet its just how Holtman drew it up....hold the ball then shitty shot.
Caleb Wesson get the inbounds I guess or woods
Whenever we need a high quality offensive possession, we do literally nothing but stand still and maybe 2 passes at the most. That’s gotta be on Holtmann right?
Just a pitiful offensive possession after the timeout. Bad coaching unfortunately.
Holtmann going to get skewered if we lose this. Kaleb gets no touch?
WHAT THE FUCK
Let's go, buckeyes! I want this win.
Lord Jesus help
Terrible pass Andre
What the heck was that?
Andre getting nervous inbounding.
That was close. Come on Buckeyes
Make FT...let's get this Win
Can the team hire an inbound specialist? All year we’ve run nothing, and now we’re incompetent at pressured inbounds
Don’t let them shoot 3’s.
Make your free throws
Nice job, Woods
Clutch AF by Woods.
Lets go Bucks!!! Close it out!! Dudes gonna miss one of these, just need to rebound an/or get the ball in quickly.
What is Lavin talking about. A good foul? That is a horrible foul!
You are clueless. You dont let the guy make a 3 point shot,
I’m fine with not letting Shayok touch it
I’m not even sure that was a foul Ohio State
come on Kaleb....Seal this thing!!!
They were running out the clock on themselves, and we foul. Granted a very weak foul
Drop these KW!! Come on!!
One time, big bro...
Yes, Buckeyes Win!!!!
He missed the front end! Heck yeah. Let's go buckeyes
We shouldn’t have won. We were badly overmatched .
Not really. That was an evenly matched game. It's not like Iowa State was that much better throughout the season.
What game were you watching? Shayok was their equivalent of Wesson. Neither team really had offenses other than those two (Woods did have himself a heck of a game). Difference is we were leading pretty much 3/4 of the entire game.
Yeah, ‘nuff respect to Jallow and Woods but when they are your third and second best scorers something has probably gone wrong.
Shayok was denied the ball a majority of the game.
MUSA Jallow was Huge.
These were two pretty even teams.
ISU was overseeded at 6.
Stupid take. We were ahead virtually the entire game
WTF is Holtmann doing? You have to foul and NOT let the guy attempt a tying 3 point shot.
Yes! We're moving on!
For a team with so little talent it's amazing that they win. that's the best compliment one can give.
Nice W for the good guys!!! Great game plan by our coaching staff as well.
Hell's yeah!!!!! Go Bucks!!!!!
Easy game... lol
We clearly had the talent and momentum.
Bucks deflate the Cyclones.
Stoked for Keyshawn Woods! He came back for this moment and played the game of his life.
Well we had to make it interesting, didn’t we?
Yeah baby suck on it losers
BOOOM!! What a win
Really good experience for team
One game away from the sweet 16. Anything can happen in March!
K. Wesson 21 points.
At some points this season felt wasted. Not anymore.
It wasn't always pretty but we got the win! I love my Buckeyes!
End of 32 20 wins. Great season!
They play hard and they play ugly, but it sometimes gets the job done. Somehow. Well done by Holtmann and the team. Huge experience boost for next year
Houston? The run and shoot offense ?
Never thought I'd say this ... Jallow is this game's MVP .... Even with K. Wesson doing his thing.
Midnight win baby!
Whew! If we could only play a little bit smarter it wouldn't be so hard. Big win for the program! And Iowa State fans have to be the whiniest fans I've ever seen.
Thanks for the threads and Bingo, IP.
Did they get a Bingo?
Not that it matters, a W is golden. And it's the 20th Win.
IP put up a revised card in the Staff article, Ibuck.
