We learned once again that Thad Matta is a great Coach!
Good W last night.....a must win. Man, most of that first half was absolutely dreadful to watch!!!! The crap shots that Wisky was making.......
1. I thought our Defense was pretty damn good the entire game and especially late we turned them into transition points
2. Ross stepped up big time! I was curious as to how much time he would get given the slow down/defensive game this would be....20min played, he knocked down shots, AND he was agressive on D!!!!! Huge turning point for him!!!
3. Craft - well played game, but he still tends to dribble too much
4. Shannon Scott - again, solid performance. His steal and bucket/FT was big
5. Ravenal came up big with blocks, rebounds, and the one possession he saved a ball and threw it off of the Wisky player. I wish we had him for one more year
6. WE MADE OUR FT'S!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Everyone contributed.....Even Amir although his awkwardness around the hoop is mind blowing but he did play agressive and provide value in the block shots and rebound category.
Even though we beat Nebraska badly the first time around we cannot look past them to the scUM game......you better believe nebraska will be ready to play.

Tons of Thomas
And some Thompson
The win inched Ohio State up 2 spots to 22 in RPI, Wisconsin fell 3 spots to 50
Still didn't guard the 3 pt line to a team whose only offense is running the shot clock down, hitting back door passes and shooting 3's. Why not throw Thompson and Scott out there with Thomas, Craft and Smith and press the shit out of them, if not go to more man D with a 1/2 court press to speed up the tempo or a 1-3-1 zone. The D looks alot better when Craft is able to play the whole game with relentless pressure do his lack of fouls. Dan Dickitch still gets his Hoosier comments in every game and loves to talk up that Oladipo kid. The fans should have been all over him when he went out to demonstrate on the court live.

Craft leads in rebounding. Thomas leads in assists. Bizarro World basketball at it's finest.

Coming into last nights game , green 12, Wisconsin was only shooting about 31% on threes....the Buckeyes gave them the 3 point line early, and 3 of those shots were sort of garbage shots that went in.....thus we denied the paint and held them to 49 points as they cooled off on the 3's. they are not normally a hot 3 point shooting team.. and rely on set plays and cuts to score, thru patience with the clock.....they do not have a. guy who can create off the dribble...they have now gone 3-4 games and not scored 50 points...that will not win many ball games....some fans on their forum board want Bo's head....
