I’ve got news for everyone....Chris Holtmann will not stay here if people continue to NOT show up and support his teams. The attendance level is a disgrace.  I’ll await tge excuses—fire away.

Man FT shooting is just brutal. Wesson especially. 

Stay golden, Ponyboy.

OSU just not a good team to start the game. This is gross. 

Stay golden, Ponyboy.

Home court advantage even a thing still?

HS

Do that more!  Take it to the rim.

KW hit a 3

HS

Go back to St. John and you’ll have home court advantage

And 1. But do we get it?

Go Bucks!

Man the FT shooting is terrible ha.

HS
B1Gbuckeye's picture

Every single free throw has gone off the back iron. Interesting to see Gaffney is so early. Pretty sure Wesson has missed every free throw so far this season.

Pretty sure Wesson has missed every free throw so far this season.

Yep, Kaleb is yet to connect there.

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

What has been with the FT shooting in this arena? All 3 teams have not been good to say the least

HS
Zimmy07's picture

We’re making UM Lowell look like a good team.

HS

Good to see Gaffney hitting his first 3. Hopefully he can keep getting better and earning playing time against good teams he’s incredibly talented. 

HS
kareemabduljacobb's picture

I may have been overly optimistic about this team. Still early in the year and I expect much improvement, esp from the freshman but it's not been pretty so far. Missing bunnies, clanking every ft off back iron, giving up 2nd chance opportunities, TOs etc. Holtmann will get them right eventually.

HS
OSU069's picture

It’s early we will be fine carton looks really good except for FT shooting

HS
kareemabduljacobb's picture

He looks good. Liddell looks like he's forcing things and a little too anxious when he's out there so far. Kid needs to calm himself and just play ball.

HS
kareemabduljacobb's picture

Glad to see Gaffney out there tho.

HS
ITWASME's picture

New rims maybe? All the FTs coming off the back iron pretty strong

HS
EJRosencrans's picture

That would make me feel better than my current thought that they just can't make FTs

Go Bucks!

HS
ITWASME's picture

Just seems weird that 0 out of the 3 teams at this arena have been able to make FTs. Could be they all suck at it I guess we will see

HS
ibuck's picture

New rims maybe?

Perhaps over-zealously tightened?

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

HS
B1Gbuckeye's picture

Free throw shooting and defensive rebounding are the issues so far this season.

HS
kareemabduljacobb's picture

Need to get Dawand Jones out there to dunk a few times and loosen these rims

HS
GoNutz27's picture

Another ugly start. At least this team isn’t peaking early.

HS
Zimmy07's picture

A cheer for a made FT.  Two!

HS
GoNutz27's picture

Would like to see more of Gaffney. Liddell doesn’t seem to be ready

HS
Zimmy07's picture

Ahrens looks like he’s a little better on defense

HS
Sanitarian2's picture

He's given up three barely contested threes, luckily only one fell. 

Sani

HS
Zimmy07's picture

I did say “a little”.  It looks like he may be able to stay in front of the defender now though.

HS

Carton is the G we’ve needed for a long time. 

HS
ITWASME's picture

Gotta say Duane is impressing me this year. Seems to be much improved from being just a shooter

HS

These post entry passes need work... from everyone.

This is definitely where I parked my car.

HS

Cj walker has not looked good at all so far this year 

HS
GoNutz27's picture

Sitting for a year definitely didn’t help

HS
ibuck's picture

C'mon Buckeyes. Get it together, stop the turnovers.

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

HS
EJRosencrans's picture

Got to make smarter passes. Some thoughts are good just not the execution.

Go Bucks!

HS
SnGinWV's picture

Seeing Gaffney in person

his length and athleticism is crazy 

Life long fan of... The!

HS
ITWASME's picture

So I guess we need to work on FTs and feeding the post

HS
GoNutz27's picture

Too lackadaisical with passes. Effort is pretty good, but just really bad decisions with the basketball

HS
Day_Man's picture

I'm still trying to figure out what kind of offense we're running. A lot of perimeter passing, not much cutting -- occasionally looking inside. Not much cohesion, yet.  

HS
Cooper's picture

I can’t tell if it’s a lack of basketball IQ, still trying to figure out lineups, or if Holtmann lacks in original offensive plays, but everyone just seems stagnant. Not a lot of off ball movement, they’re pounding the ball and then picking up their dribble... the spacing just isn’t good right now.

This is definitely where I parked my car.

HS
Zimmy07's picture

Wesson 9 points 10 rebounds.  Gaffney has 5 boards.

HS
ibuck's picture

  Gaffney has 5 boards.

...and 5 points. If he can do this again in the 2nd stanza, OSU will have 2 double-doubles.

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

HS
Buckeye24's picture

If the pitiful turnovers and poor foul shooting keeps up this team will loose most close games this year because that is a recipe for disaster....

Gaffney can definitely rebound well 

HS
GoNutz27's picture

Lots of patience needed this year

HS
Cooper's picture

I’m going to beat the Gaffney drum all year. He’s making a few mistakes but his potential is through the roof.

This is definitely where I parked my car.

HS
OSU069's picture

I will be right there with you. I think for us to really make a deep run in the tournament he is crucial.

HS
ITWASME's picture

Definitely a freshman but a stupidly athletic and talented one. As he figures out what he can and can't get away with at this level he will be a good one

HS
B1Gbuckeye's picture

Gaffney has the highest ceiling of anyone on this team.

HS
OSU_Alum06's picture

If one more person tries to make an entry pass from the top of the key... Middle school fundamentals.

Double double in the 1st half

HS
ibuck's picture

Bucks need to value the ball, block out & rebound better and shoot better FT's.

Keep growing / gelling guys.

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

HS
Zimmy07's picture

More wooden nickels than nasty dimes in this game.

HS
Zimmy07's picture

We actually shot 50% in the 1st half.  I was surprised about that.

HS
EJRosencrans's picture

Makes me sad to see a bench shot and no Joey Lane

Go Bucks!

HS
Cooper's picture

So, DJ Carton is pretty good.

This is definitely where I parked my car.

HS
Zimmy07's picture

4 players in double figures.  DJ playing really well.

HS

Free throws have been an issue for years, and this year seems to be no different.

Glad to see them going against the zone. Buckeyes struggled last year against the zone.

HS

Can we close the entire board?  Maybe.  Anyone know if UML has air-balled or shot clock violation?

Yes on the shot clock violation

espin box score only shows 5

Young 10

Wesson 13

Muhammed 11

Gaffney 10

Carton 13

Washington had 8

HS
Zimmy07's picture

I thought Carton’s last 3 was actually Walker.  I should have checked the stats first.

HS
NorthPoleBuckeye's picture

With 3:30 left in the game we had a 30 point lead, and it ended up a 20 point win. Did we stop playing defense for the last couple of minutes?

HS
Zimmy07's picture

They cleared the bench & UM Lowell was hitting a lot of shots after that.
