Like the rest of the team, he needs to play focused.  Hopefully their prep will help overcome the issues for all.

Beat everyone, in every sport, all the time!!!

We knew going into this season they were going to have issues with ball handing since they really don't have a true point guard. You can't put all of the blame on CJ for the turnovers either, although he needs to do better at times. In many of the loses, the Bucks were flat on offense and no one was getting open so he was having to force the ball into contested situations. Let's hope the coaches have a plan to take some of the pressure off of our guards because our weakness has been exposed to good teams.

Agree with you Turbo & some games really showed some very tired players.

Ridiculous what Delaney did to the whole conference to play at MSG.

Good analysis - not taking this as singling out Jackson, but it's clear handling the rock with care has to be prioritized among the good guys as the postseason journey gets underway.

I'm not around that much, running exhausted and lost...

I must confess that after the Butler game, I only saw the last 10 minutes and OT, I was not a CJ Jackson fan.  That is to say that his decision making in that game left me greatly concerned for the rest of the season.  I have since said to my boys that CJ Jackson is the most improved player on the team and maybe the main reason for Ohio State's success.

If one correlates wins and losses to one player then that person has an agenda or a vendetta. Especially when the data says the play was virtually indistinguishable from wins and losses. If one looks at the team as a whole I'm sure there were numerous persons that contributed to both wins and losses. I agree with the poster that said jackson's play was most improved over the course of the year, which is borne out by the big record. I would expect continued improvement from a player playing out of position all year and we witnessed his improvement.
