Below is Dan Wallenberg’s (OSU Athletics Communication) announcement: COLUMBUS, Ohio-Andre Wesson, a 6-6, 190-pound forward from Westerville (Ohio) South High School, signed […]

OSUMBB: Back To The Future?

I see I got off the golf course in time to catch up on some recent changes involving the Ohio State men’s basketball program.  Two former Buckeye players/coaches are apparently returning to Columbus to assist Thad. In other news, OSUMBB received a commitment from a JUCO player at a position that was a bit thin. […]

Jeff Boals to Leave Ohio State to Coach Stony Brook; Diebler to Vanderbilt

Former Ohio State assistant head coach Jeff Boals has finally landed the job opening that he feels is worth leaving Ohio State. After various reports throughout the day on Friday reported that the former Ohio grad was heading to Stony Brook to fill their head coaching vacancy, the school has made the announcement official. Boals […]

What’s up with the OSU women basketball?

I needed some time to wrap my head around this. After another early exit in the NCAA Tournament by the Ohio State women’s basketball team, I’ve spent several days trying to figure out what happened. The third-seeded Lady Buckeyes were soundly beaten by Tennessee in the Sweet 16. This was a Buckeye team ranked in […]

OSUMBB: To Everything Turn, Turn Turn…

Apologies to the Byrds, but I was going to do a retrospective article on the Ohio State men’s basketball 2015-2016 season. I may yet do that, but there appears to be some roster shuffling on Thad’s team. You might say it’s a “thinning of the herd”. No, not this potential winnowing.. According to a couple […]

Let’s talk Men’s Basketball

.. for a minute. Or two. (Thad knows what I’m talking about.) Ohio State men’s basketball just endured a season that certainly wasn’t the best of times, nor was it the worst of times. It was a season that, if we were sane and realistic with ourselves, was what we expected. Before I get into […]

Ahhh! Calm Down – There’s Always Next Year

(Photo courtesy of The Lantern) The 2015-16 OSU MBB season can be labeled a disappointment. But is it really? The Buckeyes ended overall at 21-14 and in the Big Ten 11-7. After losing five substantial contributors from the 2014-15 season: D’Angelo Russell, Shannon Scott, Sam Thompson, Amir Williams, and Anthony Lee – was the prognosis […]

Talking 10 Trolls Ohio State.. again

.. and still can’t get it right. (Image courtesy gizmodo.com) I had a little article brought to my attention on Thursday. Basically, Andy weaves a tale with what appear to be two story lines; the first story is to create a context  for his second story, which is the real story. First Fable Andy starts […]

OSUWBB: Ohio State Outlasts WVU 88-81

(Photo courtesy The Columbus Dispatch) Coach McGuff is amazed with what he saw. The 3rd seed Ohio State Buckeyes (25-7) host 6th seed West Virginia Mountaineers (25-9) in a 2nd round game. The rode tenacious defense when their offense stalled and the hot hand of Kelsey Mitchell’s 43 points to edge by West Virginia, 88-81. […]

Making the List: Evan Turner

The Ohio State University is in the NIT. The last time they were in the NIT, 2008, they won it all. That was a thrilling win for us who recall it. They beat the University of Massachusetts 92-85. And even though the score reflects only a seven point difference – the Buckeyes actually dominated that […]

2nd Thoughts: Akron

Yeah, Thad knew they could do it… Ohio State (21-13) overcame a listless first half to surge by University of Akron (26-9) 72-63 to move on to the 2nd round of the NIT. By listless, if you can’t sleep at night, watch the 1st half; you’ll be unconscious in no time. Both teams combined to […]

OSUMBB: Ohio State Edges Akron 72-63 in Overtime

Thad wondering where he’ll get enough healthy players. Ohio State (20-13) teed it up in the 1st round of the National Invitational Tournament by hosting in-state opponent University of Akron (26-8). The Zips lost a tough game, 64-61 in the Mid-American Conference tournament final against University of Buffalo (I had to get that in). Ohio […]

tBBC NIT Opener: A Glance at OSU vs. Akron

The OSU MBB team will be heading for the NIT instead of the NCAA. The entire process of this reality perhaps became noticeable back on Feb. 23rd when the Buckeyes lost to *ichigan State. That was a crucial three-game span where the need for two of the three wins would have solidified their hopes in […]

2nd Thoughts: OSU vs MSU III

Frankly, I think that Thad deserves a hand this season. It seems like I’ve been doing a lot of ‘2nd Thoughts’ articles with a “MSU beats OSU” theme lately. Thankfully, this is the last one for this season. Friday night’s Michigan State win, 81-54 again highlighted the capabilities difference between these two teams this season. […]

MBB Pregame Glance: OSU vs MSU

(Image Courtesy of Big Ten, I’d guess) This will be, necessarily, short. Having dispatched of Penn State, Ohio State (20-12, 12-7) plays Michigan State (26-16, 13-5) in the, I guess, 2nd round of the Big Ten Tourney. Here’s how the first game went, a 81-62 Spartan win on February 23rd. Here’s how the next game went, […]
