Woody Hayes, Ohio State football coach, on why he does not build up opponents like other coaches: "I'm regarded as somewhat of an authority. If I build up another team, they're liable to believe me."

Both teams came into the game with impressive win streaks. But the sting came to an end for the Buckeyes as they have their biggest defeat of the year losing by 25 points. 42 points in the second half were not enough to over come the Hoosiers.

The Bucks utilized some hot shooting from behind the arc from Keita Bates-Diop to cruise to a relatively easy 66-46 win over Penn State. With the win, Ohio State runs its record to 13-8 and 5-3 in the Big Ten, good for a tie for 5th place as they come up on the midway point of the conference season.

The Illini had 31 free throws to Ohio State's 13 and outscored the Bucks 15-2 in the last seven minutes of regulation. But with some big defensive stops in the overtime period the Buckeyes sealed the victory. The 68-63 win was the sixth straight win over Illinios.

Another opportunity to get a resume building win in a tough environment and Ohio State failed to get it done once again falling to Wisconsin 79-68 in the Kohl Center. The season is growing short but there is still time for them to land a signature win that would secure their place in the big dance.

Thad Matta’s basketball Buckeyes were in desperate need of a signature win against an upper division conference opponent to keep their faint NCAA tournament hopes alive, and they were able to get it done, defeating arch rival Michigan 76-66 in front of a hostile crowd in the Schott..
February 28, 2016
The Buckeyes outscored the Hawkeyes 12-2 in the last four minutes to secure a 68-64 win over the conference foe. Marc Loving led all scoring with 25 points and the victory gives OSU eleven in the conference this season. Will this be enough to get them into the big dance?

That was the chant from the Michigan State students as the game was clearly in hand for the Spartans. I can't blame them but it was not much less classy than the MSU cagers were in the Schott last week when they began their regular season sweep of the Buckeyes.

The Ohio State men’s basketball team fought youth and inconsistency all season long and it caught up with them early in the second half as they dug a deep hole they couldn’t get out of in a 74-66 loss to Florida. Perhaps with another year of experience and some fresh faces, next year will be a better story.

College fans across the country have waited 33 years for these two powers to square off on the football field and now they will have to wait a little longer. At least a few hours that is, as the television cycle has placed the Ohio State - Oklahoma match-up slated for prime time in 2016. I guess a noon local kick was too much to ask for.

Probably no team in OSU history as lost as many starters as the 2016 team will need to replace after the combination of graduation and early draftees. But they say that champions reload, not rebuild and the Buckeyes will get to test that theory this season. Brent Baver gives us an early look at the position breakdown for this squad.
