He played about as we'll as he's ever played in the 1st half... I know we've kept Purdue at arm's length the whole 2nd half, but doesn't Ross deserve some minutes??? His d may be a little suspect, but other than DT, he's definitely our best offensive threat

My exact thought...how can he get better if he doesn't get minutes
Purdue is really putting a lot of pressure on the ball and I would much rather have Craft and Scott handling the ball as much as possible. If this game has a nice flow, yeah, I would have Ross in there as much as possible.
north till ya smell it, west till ya step in it.
Ur right, the lineup has been working... But Ross came in the first half, and combined with Thomas's hot hand, helped OSU take and maintain control of the game with his assertiveness taking the ball to the hoop... And as much as I like lenzelle, his first 32 minutes of this game was about as poorly as I've seen him play...Ive seen Ross play when it seems he's disengaged and didn't deserve minutes... Tonite was not one of those nights
Ross should be almost as featured as Thomas. Thad needs to turn him loose. I see a potential Evan Turner there. He needs to play at least as much as Smith.
Cause The Buckeyes are terrible.
Cause Thad Matta is terrible.
Cause life is terrible.
Ross is a lot better when he moves his feet. Last few games he was moving like he was playing in sand.
LOL!!! +1. That made me laugh out loud...hence the "lol".
Thompson was playing well, we had a comfortable lead, and Ross is a turnover machine. Would like to see him get awarded for good minutes tonight but he has to make better decisions more often to be trusted.
Evan Turner?????? Please take a deep breath and regroup. He can score when he remembers to dribble, but he is about as close to winning the Naismith Award as National Player of the Year as I am.
“Without winners, there wouldn't even be any civilization.”
I'd rather see Ross start and get the minutes that Smith Jr. does. Just my opinion though, and I'm no Thad Matta.
You nailed it. LSJ has absolutely regressed this year. We might as well sell out with the starting backcourt (Craft & Scott) that will get in your jock on defense but can't shoot worth a lick.
