2nd Thoughts: Northwestern

(Thad is happy with OSU’s 2nd half effort) The Northwestern game was a “tale of two cities”. The 1st half was frustrating to follow, with Ohio State being out shot and out rebounded in the first twenty minutes. Aside from Tate/Loving (6-12, 16 points, 8 rebounds)  in 36 minutes, the Ohio State effort was soft, […]

MBB: Ohio State Edges Northwestern 71-63

(Image courtesy thesportsbank.com) Thad “offering” 2nd half encouragement. Especially foul shooting. For Tuesday’s game, Thad changed the lineup again, reverting back to Trevor Thompson starting at center for Daniel Giddens and JaQuan Lyle for A.J. Harris at guard. Ohio State (15-10, 7-5) overcame first half shooting and rebounding shortcomings to overcome Northwestern (16-9, 4-8) by the […]

2nd Glance: Wisconsin

(Thad is still pointing a few things out to his team) The Wisconsin game was a microcosm of this season to me. A very slow start (down 11-0 after 4 minutes) followed by a spirited comeback held 21-20 lead eight minutes later), then unable to finish the half (trailed 38-32 at the half) nor able […]

MBB: Ohio State Edged by Maryland, 66-61

(Image courtesy USAToday.com) Thad is as perplexed by his team’s free throw shooting as we are. Ohio State couldn’t hit the broad side of a barn Sunday afternoon and dropped a very winnable game against #8 Maryland, 66-61.  Their horrific field goal shooting (35%, 21-59) was outdone only by their inexcusable free throw shooting (58%, […]

tBBC MBB: Ohio State Edges Illinois 68-63 in Overtime

(Thad applauds of his team’s defense and rebounding.) Ohio State blew a 2nd half 13-point lead and Ohio State improved its record (14-8, 6-3) by beating Illinois (10-11, 2-5) Thursday night. That they did, by downing the scrappy Fighting Illini 68-63. As you’d expect when these teams play each other, the games are not aesthetically […]
