tBBC Radio Hour: B1G Basketball Mid-Season with Andy Coppens

tbbc-Radio-Hour-itunesThe 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

Lineup Change Could Spark OSU in B1G Play

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 […]

B1G Basketball Preview: Indiana

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.
