I will be streaming the game, but will not be able to update the Bingo Card until after halftime.  Help me out by calling out what we cross off and I will update it as I can.

I figured Cincy would play really hard & their defense is pretty good.  I even thought they might win.  I did not expect us to not even be able to run the offense.

Cut to the FT line & it might kill the zone if we can get the cutter the ball.

Buckeye Chuck's picture

Free throw shooting has been an issue with this team for years and it's really hard to understand. Since it's not like we're overflowing with great one-on-one scorers or even average outside shooters, maybe more of a focus on the single simplest thing you can do in the sport might pay off for us some?

Jay_sizzle's picture

So my 1st half takeaways

1. Spacing in the starting Line-Up is AWFUL

2. This team is too easily getting confused on backdoor cuts & corner 3s .... and somehow luther is the one getting confused

3. Luther muhammed has proved me fears I had since his High School play , his jumpshot is BROKE & he refuses to drive 

4. Kaleb is not used his body whatsoever & keeps forgetting he isnt 280 anymore , but his interior d has proving to be excellent 

5. CJ walker is just what I thought.... overrated, i like what Carton has brought with elite athleticism and great ball handling, just needs to better his passes 

6. and does anyone see how slippery the court is? Jesus

Super disappointing when the dude from Cincy has 3 fouls for the last 12+ minutes of the first half and we don't one time put Kaleb or Young on the block with their back to the hoop and feed the ball in there.. make him get the 4th or get an easy 2..

Just basic basketball... 

Go Bucks!

They have 2 Centers.  1 has 3 fouls, the other has 2.

can you call Gene & have him yell that at Holtmann during the half?

The new 3 point line is messing with everyone’s offense this year. Kansas, Duke, and Sparty all looked out of sorts on offense last nite, same w/ the Buckeyes tonight.

I don't know if this team deserves to be ranked (very likely answer: no) but that has to be the ugliest half of offense I have ever seen from a ranked OSU basketball team. Without Kyle Young, of all people, they probably would have broken some records (of the bad kind).

It sure would be nice to watch a team who can, like, hit some shots and not turn the ball over constantly. Is that too much to ask or are we gonna have to settle for solid defensive teams who make scoring look like a terrible chore?

Last year we were up at half 27-18 on them.

My takeaway is Carton should be the starting PG. shooters need to shoot like where is Washington and his instant offense?

Sorry but what the heck did these players and coaches do during the preseason practices? This is about as ugly of 20 minutes of basket ball  as I have seen from a Buckeye team. No chemistry on this team at all.

Why is Kaleb Wesson 18 feet from the basket at all times? I just really don't understand what we're trying to do out there.

Moving him out opens up the floor for dribble drive/kick outs.

I don’t think the refs have been all that bad honestly. Did Liddell actually get him on that one though, looked like a decent close out about a second late?

Love to see Wesson's shooting game, but he has to flash in and out, especially with a guy with four fouls. Not sure it's his fault, though.

Ok, this year’s starting 5 should be.

Kaleb Wesson 

Kyle Young

DJ Carton 

Dwayne Washington 

Andre Wesson....just because he’s a senior and versatile. Or you can go with whomever. 

The 5 that started tonight is just no offense only defense. I prefer to have a balance of both.  Thoughts? Who’s your starting 5?

Duane Washington could have a monster year if he becomes consistent from three. With both of our guards capable of getting penetration and Wesson a good passer out of the post, he'll have a ton of open 3's. Offense not there yet.
