I can listen to Paul Keels announce anything. Love his voice!

He’s better on TV when he doesn’t have to describe anything and can just talk about it. Football and basketball on radio with him calling the game? Sounds great but you have no clue what happened.

Love Keels.

I also love Dan Dakich and his unapologetic mancrush on Aaron Craft.

Love this... Get's us through that last month. Seeing Ross back in action... Plus how much Ravenel has improved. Now if we could ever get Deshaun Thomas in it

How come there is such a long break until their next game?

For the views, its weekend only games, I imagine.

Edit: I thought on the broadcast it said their game was next weekend but above it says August 1 is their next game.

There are 8 regions. 4 played this weekend and 4 next weekend. Winners meet on the 1st and 2nd for semifinal berths. Should be fun to watch them in the quarterfinals. 

They may be going up against an NBA-experienced team though. 1 seed from the SLC regional has 3 former nba guys, including James Michael McAdoo.

I watch this more than the NBA.  I think this will have a big future.

Payback is a bitch, Dayton. Take us to the title Carmen’s Crew. Nice interview with Coach Holtmann. + + +

Great to see how much these guys enjoy playing together.

I have totally enjoyed the past three days of "Buckeye" basketball! Watching these guys play together again is so much fun! I really liked a little Dayton payback.. :) Looking forward to Aug 1, hope they keep it going thru August and take us right to football season! Go Bucks!!

Totally agree! It has been so surreal to see them all playing again and they are clicking in 2019.

This team is very good when they step up the defense. Craft should teach classes on how to play perimeter defense, he's only gotten better.

I still think he's a future coach, unless the whole doctor thing remains his primary goal.

I haven't seen the rest of the field play  and hope Carmen can keep advancing as it is great to watch these guys play again, even with the non OSU players.  The team chemistry is great and the defense is exceptional. Great shooters on the wings and Lighty slashing thru the lane gives them a great opportunity.  Only weakness is the 5 spot as far as depth. Ravenel can play but really could use some help there if your going to win against the higher caliper teams. Sullinger and Dallas both coaching, Oden in the Big 3 tourney ( that is fun too ) and BJ is never coming back so not sure how you feel that void. Good luck and GO BUCKS

I enjoyed this game-ending layup attempt by Craft much more than the last one.

Is there a video replay out anywhere yet?

Demarcus Cousins' team looks pretty strong as well.

Difficult matchups down low because of their size.

In old Ohio there's a team that's known throughout the land...

Why isn't Sulley playing?

Deshaun Thomas on roster wonder if he is playing next week.

Why do they keep playing Gibbs and Pigram?  the difference btw them and the other 7 players is staggering.  

Lighty and Buford have to play good and Craft stay out of foul trouble in the next round to advance.  

HS

Pigram Id agree, but Gibbs is very good as a role player. I think he could defer a bit more on offense to the better players but he's hard-nosed and has played well for them getting rebounds and keeping plays alive.

If it maintains this level of play, Carmen's Crew has a legitimate shot at the tournament crown.

I love watching our former Bucks play it's such a treat to see the band get back together, and this third rendition of the crew has been as entertaining as the first two TBT Buckeye teams. But it pains me to say that our crew is likely the 6th or 7th best team in this tournament - at its absolute best. They need both Sully and DeShaun Thomas if they'd truly want to make run at the crown. And likely BJ Mullens, the three of them, to win.

They're gonna have some big matchup problems in the quarter finals, if any of the top 3 seeds advance. Hope Jimmer's #3 seed squad upsets both #1 and #2, and you'd hope we can get revenge for getting bounced easily by them last year. And we had both Sully and Oden and still got smacked pretty good.

Still can't wait for 8/1. Go Bucks!

Couple that with the related Tom Izzo quote about Craft a few years ago and that's some real fine t-shirt material right there.

Always tough for Buckeyes to play teams like Dayton. Second maybe to a Final Four appearance, beating tOSU is the best thing that could happen to a Dayton basketball player. We are expected to win and there is no fanfare if we do. It will forever be considered an upset if they win.

PLEASE let Pilgrim shoot a lay up.

I do not think he has made 1 shot in all the games.

Is there anywhere you can watch the full games online? I’ve missed them so far. Thanks
