On Sunday afternoon, #23 Ohio State (22-8, 11-6) welcomes B1G regular season champion #6 Wisconsin (27-3, 15-2) to Value City Arena. Maybe “welcomes” isn’t quite the right word. At 10-6, Ohio State currently sits in a 4-way tie for 3rd place in the B1G. The Buckeyes need a win to keep pace with the top […]
I agree with Jae’Sean, above. It wasn’t pretty, but it was a win. Ohio State rolled into University Park this evening looking to roll Penn State to maintain a shot at the #4 seed with one more game to play. They rolled back out with an exasperating (stay with me here) 77-67 win. The victory […]
The Ohio State Buckeyes (20-8, 9-6) return home to play the Purdue Boilermakers (19-9, 11-4) Sunday evening. The Boilermakers are currently in 2nd place in the Conference while the Buckeyes sit in 5th place. The Buckeyes look to get February behind them, as they treaded water with a 3-3 record, while Purdue was 5-1 during […]
The Buckeyes rolled into Penn State this evening in search of win #20 and an opportunity to move up in the B1G standings for tournament seeding. Coach McGuff’s team searched in the right place as they rolled the host Nittany Lions 88-70. This is the 3rd straight win for the fast-closing Buckeyes (20-9, 12-5) and it […]

The Buckeye Battle Cry Radio Hour is back this week to talk about B1G Basketball. It’s been a strange season, and joining us to help break it down is our pal Andy Coppens from Talking 10.
Andy and I talk how the league has changed over the last three years and how despite the B1G being down, it’s good that there are four or five freshman that are really talented to help this league grow.
We also break down the latest hoops action and how Wisconsin continues to roll in conference play. Frank Kaminsky is a candidate for Player of the Year and is well deserving, but Andy believes he should be in talks for National Player of the Year.
Finally, we break down the importance of tonight’s match up with Maryland and Ohio State and how many teams from the B1G will make it to the dance in March.
That and so much more on this episode of The Buckeye Battle Cry Radio Hour

tBBC is proud to be apart of this year’s Talking 10 Power Poll. Each Week, Ken and Joe will place their votes on where each basketball team stands in the B1G conference. Here is our first poll of the year, as published by Andy Coppens at Talking 10 — with a couple of our thoughts […]
Andy Coppens and I are at it again folks. Throwing rocks at the Minnesota athletic department, and raving about Tom Crean’s horrible hairdo…. or execution… one of the two. If I was on my A game, we would of touched on both. Thanks to Andy for having me on again, make sure you check out […]
After Ohio State lost to Kansas, head coach Thad Matta made a change to his starting lineup. Out of the starting lineup–at the center position–went fifth-year senior Evan Ravenel and in came sophomore Amir Williams. In Williams’ first start, an 87-44 victory against Chicago State, he scored just four points and grabbed four rebounds, but […]
College basketball hasn’t been friendly to Indiana Hoosier fans over the last few seasons. When it comes to hoops in Bloomington, there is no room for head coaches to breathe. So when Tom Crean takes to the bench for the 4th year as the head Hoosier man, Indiana fans might be hoping that the Michigan […]
