Thank You William Buford

Ohio State basketball came to a bitter end Saturday night with their 64-62 loss to the Kansas Jayhawks. There is always next season for the fans, current underclassmen, and the coaching staff. Unfortunately for one young man the dream of winning a national title has come to an end. We take a look back at […]

William Buford’s game high 19 points […]

Pregame Glance: Kansas II

We’re just hours away from the start of the Final Four! The Ohio State Buckeyes and Kansas Jayhawks will meet in the second game of the day today, tip-off set for 8:49 PM.

The Ohio State Buckeyes and Syracuse Orange met in Boston this evening to decide who would represent the East Region in the Final Four.

Every single Buckeye contributed a key piece to this tough victory, but […]

Pregame Glance: Syracuse Orange

The Syracuse Orange, under Jim Boeheim since the beginning of time, have had a surprisingly difficult path to the Elite Eight this year.  The Orange have struggled against all three of their opponents (at least at times), but have managed to scrape out victories in each game, often in the last seconds. First up was […]

Ohio State Heads to Elite 8 to Face Syracuse after 81-66 Victory

You can say what you want to about this sweet sixteen match-up between two instate teams. Buckeye Nation, I hope you still feel great about putting senior William Buford on blast. To be honest, I was so upset with how you handled this game that I didn’t want to finish writing this recap. What ever […]

Pregame Glance: Cincinnati Bearcats

For two straight seasons in 1961 and 1962 the Buckeyes and Bearcats squared off in the National Title game following Ohio State’s first and only National Championship.

Pregame Glance: Gonzaga Bulldogs

The Buckeyes have advanced to the Round of 32 for the third time in three years. This time around their opponent is the 7th seeded Gonzaga Bulldogs, a team that has been to the dance many times in the last decade. Coach Mark Few is one of the only coaches in the country to regularly […]

The madness continues here at the Buckeye Battle Cry! This has to be one of our favorite times of the year (really, who doesn’t feel that way?) and we love to celebrate by talking about as many teams, games, and players as we can! Joe Dexter was kind enough to get the whole thing kicked […]

Ohio State Breaks the Will of the Wolverines in 77-55 Victory

There was no doubt from the opening tip to the buzzer at the end of the game who the better team was in this semi-final match-up between rivals Michigan and Ohio State.
