Chris Holtmann wasn't happy with Ohio State's effort in practice on Sunday.

The Buckeye head coach said he made that clear to his team over the weekend, and it responded with better play on Monday. Eastern Illinois may rank 354th in the country, per KenPom, but Holtmann said closer-than-anticipated matchups with mid-majors happen with a lot more regularity than his players and some fans and media members might realize.

"I'm certain our guys understand we have a lot to prove, and tomorrow's another opportunity," Holtmann said Tuesday at a press conference at the Schottenstein Center.

Ohio State tips off against Eastern Illinois at 7 p.m. for its third game of the season.
