No. 14 Ohio State welcomes in Iowa for the teams' only scheduled meeting this season tonight (6:30 p.m., BTN). This begins a stretch of 4 games vs. unranked opponents.
This includes videos with Matta, Thomas and Craft.

Bucks are 11 point favorites according to Vegas so that sounds right on par. I like the fact that they can't shoot the three ball very well because that has been a great equalizer over the last several years for teams going up against the Bucks that are at a distinct talent disadvantage.

Statistically they do not score a lot, which is good.....poor 3pt shooting, also good but Iowa has proven it can hang with and beat quality opponents.
It will not behoove this team to start off poorly against Iowa or it could get very dicey.
I expect this team to bounce back like they did at Purdue after the Illinois loss. I am sure we will see more zone from Iowa so DT is hopefully on the mark again tonight.
At the end of the day iI think it will be our D that make the difference by creating TO's and scoring points off of those TO's ike we did against scUM. DT should score 20 at a minimum.
A good lineup of games for the Buckeyes to try and work somebody in as the #2 scoring option..
*cough* ROSS *cough*
As one of the questioners asked about the last shot by Scott.....what most people do not realize is that Craft had a great look 3 attempt in those closing seconds that happened when we were down 1 or 2, I believe, that might have won the game for us....it is the one that bricked out to the MSU guy for an easy layup ...no one watnts to talk about that....Scott was put into a bad spot..lets hope it was a learnngexperience for the young man...
Not only are the next four games winnable, they are must wins. The second half of the schedule is brutal, with six very tough games: IU twice, at MI, at WI, home with MN and MSU. 7-2 in the first half, 6-3 in the second would be a major achievement and might be enough for a share of the title.
40 minutes every night, no regrets.
Officials for Iowa at Ohio State: Mike Kitts, Pat Driscoll, John Gaffney.
No Valentine, No Burr.... if Valentine or Burr don't do a game is it really a game?
