Video: Chris Holtmann Identifies Shortcomings in Loss to North Carolina, Previews Wednesday Matchup with Maine

Ohio State suffered its first loss of the month Saturday, but Chris Holtmann doesn't want the Buckeyes to get used to that feeling.

It took overtime for last year's national runner-up to beat the Buckeyes in front of a majority pro-North Carolina crowd at Madison Square Garden over the weekend, but Ohio State's third loss of the year cost it a spot in the latest AP poll on Monday.

How would Holtmann describe Ohio State's 7-3 start to the year through the first 10 games? He's holding off judgment until he sees how the Buckeyes bounce back against a Maine team that may be tougher than many realize.

"I want to see how we respond these next couple days from an emotional game," Holtmann said. "Playing a good team. Maybe I'll have a better answer then on kind of where we're at before Christmas."

Holtmann reviewed Saturday's CBS Sports Classic defeat, looked ahead to the Buckeyes' 8:30 p.m. Wednesday matchup and discussed the latest on Eugene Brown and Isaac Likekele during his interview session. Check out everything Holtmann said in the video above.
